Winter Break Ideas

No one needs a bored kid around the house!

If you are looking to see all of the places we have been, please check out our Locations Page, that has pictures of all the places we have been, with links to our reviews (over 150 reviews!)

I also check out Groupon and Living Social to see if there are any good deals on activities!

Go For a hike!

One of my favorite trails so far is the Waterfall trail at White Tank Mountain, but there are tons of others that will rev up your metabolism too! Check out some kid friendly hikes here!

Go to a Park

We have a large collection of parks that we have gone to, but some of our favorites are Asante Park in Surprise, Pioneer Park, and Veteran’s Memorial Park in Tolleson.

Go to A Museum

We are lucky enough to have a wide variety of museums around the valley. The I.D.E.A. Museum in Mesa, Halle Heart Museum in Tempe the Children’s Museum of Phoenix or the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix are all great to visit. Also, Desert Cabelleros Museum in Wickenburg is great for the older kids!
