Looking for great ways to bond with the kids?

Planning fun activities for the kids can be tricky—painstaking, even. For parents, it can mean cautiously blocking off dates on work-filled calendars, organizing activities the youngins’ will (hopefully) love, and making sure everything runs smoothly.

But don’t fret—you don’t need to travel far nor plan hard to make timeless family memories. If you’re eyeing in-city or near-city activities for the family, we’ve listed down the best options at exclusively discounted prices. What’s more is that they’ll keep you and your kids happy, too—whether it rains or shines!
