Do yourself a favor and get the peanut butter chocolate chunk gelato. You won't be disappointed!
My son loves the petting zoo at MacDonald's Ranch (and bonus...it's free - donations encouraged)!
We love Art and Sol! My daughter has done three plays and with each performance she has grown in confidence as well as improving her singing skills. Renee has done a fantastic job!
Awesome facial! It was so relaxing, that I almost fell asleep and I left glowing.
We checked out VR Xtreme last week and had a good time, but we didn't have enough time to do everything in 30 minutes. I wish we would have had an hour instead because sometimes you have to wait for an employee available to start the experience. Other than that, it was pretty fun. The have sanitizer for everyone to use when you walk in, masks must be worn, and they have disposable masks to go around your eyes. Then sanitize again on the way out.
The J is a spectacular! The facility, equipment, pools, activities, kids programs, and more are all top notch for Scottsdale families!
The new Angry Birds game at TopGolf is awesome! Our fam had a blast playing it on Tuesday (and bonus...Tuesdays are 1/2 price)!!!
We had a great time at Mavrix! Yummy food and drinks, fun games, and a cool bowling alley. All around a fun place to play with the kids.
We recently visited OdySea Aquarium and I was impressed with the safety precautions in place. My family enjoyed getting to explore the aquarium with a substantially smaller crowd. We were able to get up close to every exhibit, while social distancing from others. They still have the touch tanks open and have hand sanitizing stations throughout the building. We will definitely be returning!
My son loves the ninja course. SkyZone also does fundraisers. Our school did a fundraiser jump on an early release day and the kids all had a blast while raising money for our school!
Mini Social is a great place for parents to socialize while the little ones play. Best for crawlers to preschool age kiddos.
This is an awesome indoor play place and they do great birthday parties too!
I surprised my hubby and daughter with a flight at iFLY for Father's Day and they loved it!
We love seeing movies at Harkins Fashion Square. Insider tip...there's a secret private screening room called The Freezer that you can rent out for private parties!
Great family bonding time! Everyone in our family had a great time and the kids ask to go back all the time.
We love Bowlero!
My kids love Carrie Curran art camp! And, my hubby and I did one of their Mimosas & Monet classes in the garden at the Hermosa Inn and had an awesome little day date!
The Mother's Day Brunch at the Princess is spectacular! And, follow it up with mom-time at the spa for a perfect way to spend Mother's Day!
We LOVE Cherokee! When we moved here 2 years ago, it was a daunting task to navigate the Arizona public school system. I'm so glad we found our home at Cherokee!
My son went to a birthday party here yesterday and had a blast. He loved that they turned the lights down and all wore glow necklaces for part of the time. I chatted with a couple moms that have done parties here and said it was the easiest birthday ever (basically just show up!).
My kids love Dr. Stefanie! Yesterday they had their 6-month check up and they were so excited to go. I even got to play Ms. Pac-Man while they were getting their cleanings!
My kids had a great time at Code Ninjas yesterday! They created 4 games, played with robots and roblox and made new friends. It's nice having a full day camp that is entirely in the air conditioning and they provide lunch so it was easy-peasy on me!
My kids had a great time here today! We will definitely be coming back!
I wish I would have learned about Families' Little Helper sooner! My kids are fighting less and listening to me more. Danielle is helping my family finally get back on track!
My kids love the Seth Korey Tennis Program! I love the convenience of the transportation of kids from school to the tennis center!
My husband and daughter had a date night here and had such a great time that they have been back twice! The painted pottery is adorable in her room and reminds her of the special time there with daddy!
Dave & Buster's is my son's favorite place in the world. We love going on Wednesdays when they have 1/2 priced games! And for the parents, the happy hour deals are great so I recommend going earlier in the evening!
My son had a Bricks 4 Kidz birthday party and loved it!
There is a fun room where kids can play various instruments. My kids had fun there, but were pretty bored with the rest of the museum. It's a fantastic collection for music lovers, but a little too "adult" for the kiddos. That being said, if you have a little budding musician, they need to visit this museum.
The is a great children's museum for the younger kiddos. They also do a great job with private events (we went to a fabulous wedding here)!
My daughter's 2nd grade class had a wonderful field trip here. She enjoyed it so much that we went back a week later with her little brother (who also loved it!).
The children's department has a great play area! This is a great way to entertain the kiddos for free in the air conditioning. My kids can play here for hours. They also have great children's programs, summer reading program, and homework tutors.
My son had an awesome time at a birthday party here! And, it included a little lesson for all of the younger kids.
This is such a great park year round, but be sure to come back during the holiday lights show! We took visitors from out of town last year over and all of the kids and parents had a great time.
My daughter went here with a friend and had an awesome time! They got so many great pics of being right next to some of the animals. We are excited to go back and check it out as a whole family!
My kids and I had a great time at Sea Life! We bought the discount tickets on Groupon as we were walking in the door and beat the line! Then, we made a day of it with lunch at the Rain Forest Cafe. They loved it! You can also get a discount bundle rate if you are planing to visit LEGOLand as well.
My son had a great time at a birthday party at the Phoenix Zoo. They did a craft project in the air conditioning (which was a great cool down on a hot summer day). I would recommend spending the day at the zoo when it isn't so hot, since most of the exhibits are outside. The kids loved the spray-park play area too!
Our whole family had a great day at OdySea!
The Play Factory is fun for little children (maybe up to age 6).
We took my 5 year old here for his birthday and we all had a great time!
We love Top Golf! It's a great way for an entire group (including kids) to enjoy practicing while spending time together! They do a great job with birthday parties and my kids are excited to hopefully attend one of the upcoming camps!
My family had an awesome time at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess this weekend! We enjoyed s'mores around the ice skating rink, riding the ferris wheel and ice slide, writing post cards to and meeting Santa, listening to Christmas music, and seeing all the beautiful lights. Splurging for room service and drinks by the pool were icing on the cake!
I took my kids to the Critz Fall Harvest Celebration yesterday and we had a great time! They loved riding the cow train, playing at the playground and slides. feeding the animals, picking pumpkins and driving the tractor. The live music was great as well! Unfortunately they are already all out of you pick apples, but otherwise it was a wonderful day. We will definitely be going back!
This is a great museum. A must see for all baseball fans! Take the beautiful drive to Cooperstown and enjoy the historic town while you visit. Check out the awesome Farmer's Museum while you are in town as well. This is a perfect summer day family adventure from Syracuse!
We went to the Farmer's Museum on Sunday and had a blast! It's beautiful, entertaining, and educational. My kids loved learning about the spinning wheel and getting to brush the wool, the blacksmith, and really all of it. It's a great little day adventure from Syracuse. While your there, talk a walk through Cooperstown, enjoy the pretty lake, and check out the National Baseball Hall of Fame!
We went to the Pirate Invasion weekend last week and my kids had a blast! I bought the tickets online while we were driving there, which worked out perfect because we didn't have to stand in the long ticket lines. I definitely recommend doing that! There is a lot of entertainment, performances, and activities, but unfortunately it can get pricey. Kids under 5 get in free, so that's a bonus!
My family and I went to BFG here yesterday and it was awesome! I have complained about Syracuse not have a theater like this since I moved here, and Movie Tavern nailed it! The seats are awesome, the food is great, and the staff is very friendly. We will definitely be going back!
My kids absolutely love MPH summer camp! On the first day my daughter hugged her teacher goodbye and the 2nd day they talked about how excited they were to go back. Love, love, love!!!!
We saw the Phantom of the Opera on Friday night and it was fabulous! Thanks for bringing another great show to Syracuse!
We had an awesome time at the Jeff McBride Magic Show on Saturday! What a beautiful theater with reasonable prices for young families!
My family had a great time at the Family Funday yesterday! We all painted landscapes on ceramic tiles and toured the art museum while they dried. This is a great free program for kids, we will definitely go back!
My family had an awesome time at the museum this weekend! Both kids found fossils and were excited to take them to school today to show to their classes.
My son went here last year and we loved it! Ms. Emily was amazing with his classroom!
I took my son to the toddler time and we had a blast! The employee, Kylan, is awesome! He ran around encouraging all the kiddos to chase him. They loved it! (Bonus: I got in some exercise too!)
Rebecca is awesome! I absolutely love the family photos that she took on Saturday. She not only got great shots of the family, but it only took a half hour and she had the whole album ready for me in 3 days! It was cold and rainy out and the pictures still turned out perfect. She also took amazing pictures off all the kids at my son's preschool. I don't know how she managed to get 20 preschoolers to sit still and smile, but she managed to get perfect pics of each one. I highly, HIGHLY recommend hiring her for your next family shoot!
Best apple pie in town! I ordered a gluten free apple pie for Thanksgiving and it was the best apple pie we have ever had (including pies with gluten)!
I can't say enough good things about Kumon! My kids have only been enrolled in the Kumon program for two weeks and we are already seeing a huge improvement. My daughter is becoming more confident with reading, which has been a bit of a struggle and they look forward to going to the center. In fact, when my daughter was getting on the bus this morning and I told her that we have Kumon this afternoon, she said "Yayyyy!"
My kids love their gymnastics classes at CNY Gym Centre! They ask to go almost every week!
Thank you so much for making such delicious gluten free treats!
My daughter went to a birthday party here and loved it so much that she asks to go everyday!
We love the East Area Family YMCA! There are so many wonderful sports and art classes for the kids (at great prices), my son is enjoying his free swim lessons, and I love being able to work out with free babysitting (and it's not just babysitting - they do art projects, have story times and play games). The kids love going so much, there really isn't an excuse for me to not work out. :)
My son loves The Children's Focus Preschool! The teachers are wonderful with the kids and it's amazing to see how much he has learned during his time here.
My kids love playing at Beak & Skiff and the whole family loves the apples, doughnuts, and tasting room! Beautiful farm!
My family had a such a great time at Abbott Farms yesterday! The kids loved the huge corn maze and apple cannon and there was a huge selection of perfect pumpkins!
My kids love Sharkey's! My son asks to get a haircut every week and my daughter loves that they paint her nails too!
I can't drive past Sweet Frog without my kids asking to go! We especially love the $3.50 Thursdays!
Sensei Nolan is amazing with kids! My kids love his class!
My kids love going here because it is dinner with entertainment - balloon artists on stilts and corn hole games!
My kids absolutely loved the Snow White interactive play yesterday! Can't beat it for $5 each. We also enjoyed eating lunch before the play in the train car!
