Get ready for another packed weekend. The birds are singing, spring is coming (really) and there's plenty to do in the area to have fun as a family and learn.
Each week, we'll tell you about the five best family activities or events for the week. You're time-pressed enough, so we're happy to do the research and find the best things to do and places to go, both locally and within reasonable striking distance.
Look for the kids’ planner each Wednesday, and help us build the planner with your own suggestions and tips—just add them to the comment box. Even if you disagree with our picks, let us know. We want to hear from you!
