Here it is again, folks. I'll post all the cool, fun stuff to do with your kids and family here. Please add to the thread if you feel I missed something. We live in a great place, get away from the keyboard sometimes and go experience life!

Ten Toe Express walks. These are fun. Been on a few myself. A great way to learn some history and the lay of certain neighborhoods.

Shakespeare in the Park!

Not for the littlest unless you expect them to sleep. These can be long plays. Funny, active and engaging but sometimes two hours or more.

Original Practice Shakespeare

These can be bawdy and lewd.. much the way Old Will meant for them to be. if you are shielding your kids from sexy stuff, get a sitter or take only the older kids. I took my teens last year and they both had a good time.

Lake O concerts.

These are amazing. Worth the trip if you don't live on that side of town.

Dollar movies for nine weeks of summer. Go a bit early for your seats and take another adult, too. Sometimes the day camp buses full of kids will fill up most of the seats.
