Not many things make a parent feel better than hearing their kids say “This was the best day EVER!”.  Some days the “best day ever” happens at home. Other times you need to get out and about, and it’s straight MAGIC.  Whether we are staying local or visiting a new city, it’s important to celebrate who your kids are and their accomplishments with a day that’s all about THEM.  I like to call these “Magical Kids Day”.

Today, I’m sharing a Magical Kids Day for the city of Tallahassee!  You already know that I think Tally is a great little gem of a city.  When it comes to our kids, they might not see the value of all the museums and historical elements.  There are 3 things that I think would for sure warrant a proclamation of it being the “best day ever” from your little ones.

Start the morning at Tree to Tree Adventures!
http://tallahasseemuseum.org/treetotreeadventures/
It’s part of the Tallahassee Museum and allows you to explore Tallahassee from a “new level”.  It includes zip lining, aerial games and obstacles.  There are 3 courses that are based on height, rather than age and all are beginner friendly. I’d recommend this activity for kids in good health and at least 5 years (and 39″ tall) or older.

You can get an idea of what to expect from this video from the Tallahassee Museum youtube channel.

Spend the afternoon at Imagination Fountain!

You can take your lunch and make it a picnic, before changing into your suits and hanging out at Imagination Fountain. What’s more fun than the splash pad!  I think they’re a parent’s dream.  Water play with not having to worry about drowning, everyone stays cool while you beat the Florida heat.  Sounds divine.
YUM!Finish the day at Lofty Pursuits!

Imagine a mash-up of an ice cream parlor, candy store, and toy store.  Actually, you don’t have to imagine it; because Lofty Pursuits IS that place. Normally, getting ice cream is a fun event, but you can’t see yourself staying there for hours on end.  That’s not the case at Lofty Pursuits!  It’s whimsical, fun and all the activities will make YOU feel like a kid again.  There’s only one place in the world like it, so if you find yourself in Tally, be sure to carve out some time to take your family and explore.

An outdoors adventure, water time and the ultimate ice cream date is sure to make the most MAGICAL KIDS DAY in Tallahassee, FL!  You can guarantee everyone will sleep well that night!
