Hurricane Irene Coast Day is coming! Come on out to Philadelphia's waterfronts on Saturday, September 10 for 2011 Pennsylvania Coast Day, a series of events on the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers. Paddle Penn's Landing in a kayak or swan boat, take a tour of the tall ship Kalmar Nyckel, watch dragon boat races and enjoy the interactive displays and children's activities near the RiverLink Ferry Terminal at Penn's Landing from 11:00-4:00. You can also take a free shuttle to the Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center and get a discounted admission to the Independence Seaport Museum.

Not that we're the cruise director of Coast Day or anything, but we would suggest a September 10 itinerary of a morning at the Philly Fun Fishing Fest on the Schuylkill before hitting the Delaware for Coast Day events and activities.
