It’s snow season in Philly! If you find yourself with a day off from work or school, you may want to curl up on the couch of your The Isle apartment with soup or hot chocolate and get started on some serious Netflix binging. But before you get to all that fun, why not revisit your childhood with some good old-fashioned fun in the snow?
Kids have certainly cornered the market on sledding, but that doesn’t mean adults can’t join them! So layer up, grab your crew and a sled (or improvize with a trashcan lid!) and head out to these local spots to make some new snowday memories:
Walnut Lane Golf Course: This golf course, one mile from your The Isle apartment, has some of the best hills in the area! Located within Wissahickon Valley Park, Walnut Lane is popular with golfers throughout the year and, when winter weather hits, it finds a new fanbase in sledding fanatics. The expansive 18-hole course features many hidden hills and valleys, so spend some time exploring for the perfect spot. Just don’t get caught in a sand trap!
Thomas Mansion: Located two miles from your The Isle apartment, Thomas Mansion brings history to life throughout the year—and when it snows, the property itself comes to life with sledders. The historic mansion is situated above a beautiful valley overlooking Wissahickon Valley Park—offering spectacular snowscape views and thrilling adventures.
Carpenter’s Woods: About 2.5 miles from your The Isle apartment, this hidden pocket of Wissahickon Valley Park is a haven for downhill fun. Keep an eye out in the sky as you head down the slopes too, as the area is the city’s first bird sanctuary so you may spot some snow-loving creatures along your routes.
