As the school year comes to an end take a look at this list and start making plans for how to spend some family fun times with your kids. :)
- Go Bowling--for free! Click here to see if your local bowling center is participating in this special summer program offering 2 free games a day with the purchase of a discounted family summertime pass.
- Visit the Library. See if there is a free story time or summer reading program that encourages kids to read a certain amount of books. Don't forget, the library is an excellent sources for borrowing DVD's as well.
- Call your local Historical Society. Lots of museums will offer special kids programs to foster art appreciation. Hands on learning even a "make-it-and-take-it" craft can sometimes be part of the fun.
|In addition to these ideas for local family fun don't forget to check your community newspaper; your town's board of tourism; and the public relations office at City Hall for any upcoming fairs or festivals. |
Finally, next time you drive past the local hotel stop in the lobby and look for the display rack full of pamphlets and brochures intended to familiarize guests with all the local attractions and happenings.
