So turn off the TV, store those iPads, and combat the “I’m bored!” outcries with these events.

McKenna Children’s Museum

The museum was created especially to ignite your child’s imagination and inspire them to explore and discover more about their world and outer space. The gallery is a collection of exhibits that include gardening, science, technology and healthy living habits.

Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch

Take your family on a real-life safari. The Ranch is home to over five hundred rare animals.

Take time to feed barnyard animals at the Petting Barnyard or strut alongside exotic animals in the Walk-A-Bout.
