Hangin’ w/ the Kids Options

Challenger Learning Center & IMAX
Visit the Challenger Learning Center and catch an IMAX movie.  The shark and butterfly ones are awesome!!!  While you’re there, ask about the Winter Break Camp!

Did you know there are over 10 different playgrounds in town?  Pick a favorite, like the St. Marks Boundless Playground, and enjoy the great Fall weather!  View a complete list of local playgrounds here.

Skate World
Open 12-3pm for No-School Day!

Visit the Pumpkin Patch
The patch is fun to visit on Saturdays for the carnival activities, but also fun for a quieter stroll through the pumpkins and picnic lunch on any day of the week.  Visit the patch at Tallahassee Heights UMC or at Faith Presbyterian for some outdoor fun with pumpkins.  Plus, don’t miss the spooky movie in the patch Friday evening at Faith.

Aunt Louise’s Farm
Come spend the day at Aunt Louise’s Farm. Get lost in the corn maze, enjoy a ride on the barrel train, or play in the dried-corn box. Visit the goats, chickens, and rabbits (and even feed them a treat!).  We’ll have homemade crafts, goodies, and refreshments available for sale. Check out our pumpkin patch and enjoy the scavenger hunt. Tickets are only $5, so enjoy a great day of affordable family fun, grab a hot dog and a snow-cone, and make some memories!
***Note – Call ahead for weekday visits please!***

Explorer’s Day at the Florida Historic Capitol Museum
This event will take place weekly through the end of the year and there is a special edition of it today for no-school day.  Details here.
