Needs more cleaning of the areas where we eat and get beverages. Staff needs more training to make the experience better.

Talen Energy Stadium

What a beautiful stadium and fantastic place to watch professional soccer. We have visited several times and always enjoyed ourselves. There are plenty of safe parking lots for tailgating. There aren't any bad seats in the stadium. Food prices are somewhat cheaper than MLB and NFL stadiums, but beer prices are similar. Look forward to going back soon.

Took my niece and nephews to cut Christmas tree. The whole trip was an adventure. Though I think the hayride was voted the best part of the trip. We got there early on the Saturday after thanksgiving maybe around 10, there weren’t too many people so the kids had the whole hayride almost to themselves. So they got goofy. By the time we left in a couple of hours, there was a line to get on.

We have been getting our trees here for 2 years now. They are perfect.

But I think the experience is the best! We go fruit picking a couple of times a year too.
