Mulberry Orchard is open during the week (except Mondays) for fall family fun. They have a market with produce, a kitchen that’s perfect for lunch and treats, a farm play area and corn maze. Starting on 9/19 they will have pumpkin patch wagon rides. It’s a $10 maximum price on pumpkins, so go big!
Take in a Drive-in Movie! Some of the locations have weekday showings and those are great for safe, evening fun with the family.
They weather cools down a bit and you can pop open the back of your car and hang out. Or, bring chairs to relax outside of your car. People are loving this in 2020!
Side by Side Studio has art kits to go. You can provide activities for your kids to be creative without worrying about gathering up all of the supplies. Plus, Side by Side Studio provides some guidance for ideas through the kits!
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.
Take a day trip to Brown County Indiana!
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.
