Last Saturday at the Park : Have your kids ever wondered what life was like for people living in the original colonies under the British crown? Each Saturday, re-enactors at the Living History Park bring to life an 18th century colony for families to enjoy for free. Great for the budding history buff!

Active Climbing Indoor Rock Climbing : When the weather's not great and you're looking for something to do together inside, surprise the family with a trip to Active Climbing and spend some time on the rock walls and ninja warrior obstacle courses. Adventurous families will love it!

 

Airstrike : The entire family will feel like kids again when they spend an afternoon jumping at this indoor Trampoline Park. Drink lots of water and prepare for everyone to need a nap when you're finished. Great for energetic families!

 

SNOCAP Drive-In : For more than 50 years, families have been ordering Smiley Fries and Root Beer Floats, but this old-fashioned drive-in diner still keeps with menu fresh with fun items like MAC'nJAC Bites and Fruit Fritters. After a fun day out, take the family for lunch or dinner together!

Local Pro Tip : Take the kids from 4 - 9 p.m. on Thursday nights and get 1/2 off Kids Meals when you dine in.
