5. Splash zones

For parents with water bugs on their hands, don't miss out on some chlorinated local fun. Little swimmers will love having a party poolside.

Consider:

Liberty Lagoon Indoor Waterpark and Activity Center
2975 W. Liberty Road, Ann Arbor, 734- 665-3738, ext. 57

Goldfish Swim School
2388 Cole St. No. 101, Birmingham, 248-644-1914
22710 Haggerty Road, Farmington Hills, 248-596-1914

6. Science centers

Budding scientist, or maybe just an astronaut wannabe? If so, book your child's next birthday bash at an area science center.

Consider:

Detroit Science Center
5020 John R St., Detroit, 313-577-8400, option 5

Cranbrook Institute of Science
39221 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills, 248-645-3200

7. Private theaters

Everyone likes going to the theater, whether for movies or plays. But how often do you get to have a theater all to yourself or reserved seating? It sure could be arranged for a special birthday boy or girl.

Consider:

Goodrich Quality Theaters
Locations in Ann Arbor, Canton and Oxford

Marquis Theatre
135 E. Main St., Northville, 248-349-8110

8. Princess palaces

For little girls looking for the chance to be a princess for a day, there are several party places to indulge her inner royalty.

Consider:

Tea Party Castle
52261 Van Dyke, Shelby Township, 866-484-4662

The Kiddie Klub
2897 Crooks, Rochester Hills, 248-852-4012

My Girly Party
30006 West 12 Mile Road, Farmington Hills, 248-298-2220

9. Bowling alleys

If you've got kids who love to stay active during the party and down a few pins, a bowling party is the ticket. Remember to ask for the staff to put up kids' bumpers.

Consider:

Thunderbird Lanes
400 W. Maple Road, Troy, 248-362-1660

Brighton Bowl
9871 E. Grand River Ave., Brighton, 810-227-3341

10. Skating rinks

There's something a little retro special about hanging out a roller rink. Strap some skates on your birthday kids and watch them take a spin around the rink. Be sure they get in a game of hokey-pokey, too.

Consider:

Bonaventure Family Skating Center
24505 Halstead Road, Farmington Hills, 248-476-2201

The Great Skate
29100 Hayes, Roseville, 586-777-4300

Ready to party? With these great birthday destinations nearby, you can find a place to suit your child's ideal party. (And you won't even have to handle any of the cleanup!)
