Oldest Drive-in Movie Theater: Shankweiler’s Drive-in
Located in: Orefield, Pennsylvania
Why you should go: Why take the kids to see that summer blockbuster at a stuffy run-of-the-mall theater when you can treat them to a breath of fresh air—literally? Shankweiler’s is the oldest continuously operating drive-in theater in the U.S.A., in business since 1934 and still family-owned and -operated. Its many retro charms include $8 tickets (for a double feature!) and a snack bar stocked with fun fare like hot dogs, funnel cake, cotton candy, and popcorn topped with real melted butter. (Tickets are $9 per adult, $5 per child ages 3 to 12; shankweilers.com.)
