Chuck E. Cheese: With locations at Regency, Southside, and Orange Park, no summer of ours is complete without a trip to see the local mouse. You can keep your visit cheap if sign up for their email club, use coupons, and limit the number of tokens per kid.

Libraries: More than just books, our libraries offer puzzles and computers with educational games, and the weekly storytime is a must for my 1-year-old, even on a sunny day! Check out Duval, Clay, and St. John’s library websites and plan a visit to your local library, too.

Nordstrom: For the mom who likes to shop on a rainy day, try out Nordstrom. In the kids’ section, you will find a fun little play area to keep the kids busy while you shop.

Mischelle Storm

Besides the major last name upgrade, Allan gave Mischelle two adorable and active boys. Mischelle is passionate about all things, mindfulness, holistic wellness, & yoga. She is adventurous and loves to try new things –– like the latest adventure of living in a 200 sq ft tiny home on 10 acres in the middle of the TX hill country! This diverse Mama can be found sipping either a green smoothie or a Tequila and soda, eating Thai food with her fam, or riding her Peloton –– not all necessarily at the same time.


  1. It’s my birthday and I was going to go to the beach but it’s raining so I used your list to find a bowling alley near me thanks!

  2. Thanks for sharing about Jacksonville. I usually play indoor games with my 3 years child, he enjoys very much. I also play dart games in our game room. I will go Jacksonville soon with my hubby and Child.

  3. A lot of parents these days remain sick worried about their kids’ dietary habits and their overall health condition. One reason for that is usually attributed to the growing levels of obesity in the kids these days. There once was a time when the children of the house, for the most part of the day, were to be found playing on outdoor play equipment.

  4. You might wanna add Ikea in for free or cheap. They have a play area that you can drop off your kid while you shop. It’s free,but your child must be potty trained and within a certain height range. It’s for an hour, but only if they have the spot available.

  5. Hi All! I love all the wonderful recommendations given here!

    I would like to add our Kids Yoga Class to the list.
    Located at The Retreat in Ponte Vedra Beach , on Mondays at 4:30-5:15pm. Bring your kids after school to have some fun, learn some new yoga poses and practice meditation to help improve focus and mood.
