Week in Preview
Welcome to the Week in Preview where we highlight weekday family fun opportunities.
Here are my picks for weekday family fun!
E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park is having a pop-up movie night to support their parks foundation. Take a step back to your childhood and take the family to watch Space Jam!
Go for a hike at the Louisville Nature Center. Behind the building, hop on a trail. The trails are all appropriate distances for families.
Toward the back of the trails, there’s access to a creek. The trails all make loops so you can’t get lost! Bring bug spray and wear long pants, the trails are thin.
Get art supplies delivered to you! Paint all sorts of fun designs with your kids. Paintn’ Party delivers and it’s all just $18 for everything you need.
Boone Bottoms Trail in the Turkey Run area of the Parklands (park at the Ben Stout House) is a nice hike for families. Find the Parklands on our hike list and you can look up all of their trails. There’s access to the creek and it’s a short loop which is perfect for young families or families looking for a quick option.
Don’t forget to wash your hands!
Get active! It’s easy to sit around when there seems to be less going on. But, really, there’s a lot to do that you just might not have discovered yet. Here are our ideas for active family fun.
Renaissance Fun Park has BOGO mini golf on Mondays, $2 lazer tag on Tuesdays, and 2 and 4 hour unlimited fun deals all week long! Click here to see their specials and updated hours. It’s definitely less busy during the week.
Gallrein Farms is open for visitors 9am – 5pm. It’s in Shelby County and they currently have South Carolina Peaches available for sale. They have a petting zoo that is open from 9am – 5pm. Bring some coins to buy the little bits of food to feed them. Shop their market for flowers and other fresh veggies.
The Silo Lookout at the Parklands is open. Go check it out, go for a hike, pack a picnic and lots of water. You will get an awesome view from above.
We hope that you are making the most of your summer. Keep tabs on our page for ideas. We are tracking what is open and always looking for new ideas to share with you for weekday family fun outings.
