Family Days at Local Museums and Other Attractions

There's no better time to visit local museum, park or other attraction than on kids' day!

Looking for a fun way to spend a day with the kids? Kids’ Days are the best days to enjoy some of the educational hubs or fun spots in our area.

These events typically happen on a schedule and often feature a lower entrance fee for kids or special events geared directed at youth.

Whether it’s an educational, recreational or a full-family opportunity, get involved in the activities that these community places have to offer at these upcoming kids’ day events.
