I’m smitten as a kitten for not one but THREE men in my life - OH MY! Fine dining and dark chocolates would never make their hearts skip a beat or ever be viewed as anything other than punishment for these sweet buttercups. So pass on the prixe fixe menus and plan a special night around playful places and sweet treats and don’t forget, Valentine’s Day is a day when PDA is tolerated so hug, kiss and hold hands with your little ( and not so little) sweethearts!
Always consistent & courteous service. Add on a tub of cookie dough and take-n-bake your night from glum to yum. Heart shaped pizza's on Valentine's day!
Year round fun. Ride the rides in the spring & summer, look on their website for BOGO ride bracelet days. Roller skate year round in the historic roller rink. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the day. During the summer they also have designated pre-school days where your young ones can enjoy the park sans all the crowds.
Killer rich hot cocoa and comfortable seating.
If you've rolled all your loose change and now wonder: what can I do with this roll of nickels? Head to the Avalon theater and the wunderland nickel arcade where all the games run on, you guessed it - nickels! If you don't catch a bargain priced movie, you need to pay a small cover to go into the arcade. The games aren't the latest technology has to offer but it's a fun afternoon for the kids and kids-at-heart.
See beautiful larger than life sized movies about life under the seas, inside volcanoes or floating in the Milky Way as well as " in theaters now" movies. Get discounts if your an OMSI member
Sweet shop, vast selection of tasty sugary treats! Everything is so colorful and bite sized you'll want to say "I'll take 1 of everything"
Bowling at reasonable prices & kids specials often on their website. Arcade games and an exceptionally large selection of prizes that delight both big & small.
Sweet treats with a dose of nostalgia like the Triple Dog Dare,pop rocks packaged with a bottle of coca-cola! Explosively fun, no matter how old.
The west end now has it's own little scoop of sweet creamy heaven on SW 12th. Unique ice cream flavors, as well as, the favorite standbys the kiddos crave. Adorable shop complete with a pink mailbox that accepts ice cream flavor requests and the charming Ruby Jewel Scoops postcards that are pre-stamped for your convenience.
The entire course glows in neon bright colors and it's impressive not amateur. Birthday parties, team building, date night, fun-time-all-the-time. Some graphics may frighten little ones under 5. Prices are reasonable and a smart park is just around the corner
A great zoo with a new African lion exhibit. More baby elephants are born at this zoo than any other (27). Hop on the zoo train and exit at the Rose Gardens for a breath of fresh air & a gorgeous view, then take the next train back up to the zoo. Fabulous Christmas zoo lights display & summer concert series.
The signage out front is small so you need to really look for this aquatic adventure. Kids of all ages will like this touch and feel aquarium, the first time through, and kids 8 and under will love it multiple times. The nurse shark / sting ray feed & touch pool is great. Stick your hands in the water and feel the slimy skin of multiple sting rays glide across it. A small indoor climbing structure is inside the aquarium as well. Birthday parties and overnight parties can be hosted here. Lots to see at kids eye level.
