Each Wednesday, we’ll assemble a list of kid-friendly activities and new places for you to try out with your kids this week.
We know your time is limited and precious, so we're happy to do the research and find the best things to do and places to go, both locally and within reasonable driving distance.
But we want you to help us build the planner with your own suggestions and tips — just add them to the comment box. Even if you disagree with our picks, let us know. We want to hear from you!
