Spring Break “Staycations” For All Ages

Spring break is just around the corner. The kids will be home from school. Do you have plans to keep them busy? There are plenty of things to do and see in Minnesota, both indoors and out, for all ages. Here are a few ideas to keep your family busy during Sprink Break vacation.

Aquariums and Zoos
Do your kids go wild for animals? Escape the cold and immerse yourself in tropical weather on the Minnesota Zoo’s Tropics Trail or pay a visit to their newest addition, a baby Malayan tapir. Stroll through the Como Zoo to see a variety of animals while being surrounded by lush tropical plants.

Museums
In downtown St. Paul, treat your kids to a day at the newly renovated Minnesota Children’s Museum, which added 10 new permanent exhibits in 2017.

Rock Climbing
Have you ever wanted to try rock climbing? Vertical Endeavors caters to families looking for an afternoon of fun and can even challenge serious climbers. The St. Paul location is the largest indoor rock climbing facility in the country. Vertical Endeavors also has locations in Duluth and Minneapolis. Rental equipment is available.

Make a Splash at a Waterpark
In Thief River Falls, visit The Seven Clans Casino Park to enjoy four large waterslides, three mini-slides, two hot tubs, a lazy river and more or at Water Park of America in Bloomington

Hit the Slopes
Depending on the weather, skiing and snowboarding could either be is pretty much done, or still going strong! If your kids want one last chance to play in the snow, Wild Mountain and Afton Alps are usually the last two local holdouts, staying open for one more week, with skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing. Kids have to be 42″ tall and over 4 years old to go snow tubing.

You don’t have to travel across the country to enjoy your Spring Break this year. Hope you have a fun family spring break with a few of these ideas in the metro.
