If your children love basketball, the best place to take in a game is at the historic Palestra gymnasium located on Penn’s campus. It’s intimate with just 8,700 fans crowded in the bleachers, but the Palestra makes up in spunk and spirit what it lacks in modern day bells and whistles. Aside from Penn athletics, the Palestra also hosts Philadelphia Big Five men’s basketball (Penn, Villanova, La Salle, Temple, and St. Joe’s) games that never disappoint.
