Make Valentine's Day a family-friendly celebration this year. It's an opportunity to enjoy time together and show how much you love each other.
There are kid-friendly things to do the weekend before and after the holiday in Philly, the surrounding suburbs and New Jersey.
Families can watch an epic love story unfold on the big screen. Besides telling a story of true love, '80s classic "The Princess Bride" includes fencing, giants and pirates – so everyone will find something to enjoy within the story.
