Top 5 Spring and Summer Activities for the Perfect Day Out
Your kid’s social and physical development should be a top priority as a parent. And the only ample time they have to bond and have fun with you is during the warmer seasons.
Below is a list of fun activities you can enjoy with your child.
1. Geocaching With Kids
The Twin Cities is full of places to take the kids geocaching. Geocaching is an activity for people who love the thrill of exploring new places and finding hidden gems. To play, you use your phone or GPS device to navigate through nature’s beauty while searching out these cleverly-hidden containers – there are millions across 190 countries!
So grab your phone and your family and have a fun afternoon geocaching together!
2. Take Your Child On A Mississippi River Adventure
As North America’s longest river, the Mississippi is worth exploring. It flows through 10 states, beginning at Lake Itasca in Minnesota and flowing to the Gulf of Mexico.
This remarkable river has a depth of 75 feet and a width of 1 mile at specific points, which is impressive. It’s the ideal way to give your kids a taste of their geography classes.
3. Visit The Como Park Zoo And Conservatory
The Como Park Zoo and Conservatory has it all, from an amusement park to art galleries and gardens. You can also bring the whole family to enjoy live music performances at the Pavilion or catch a movie at their on-site IMAX theater.
The kicker? This year, they’re hosting Summer Music & films, featuring films like “Frozen” and “Grease”!
Como Park Zoo and Conservatory is open year-round from 10 am to 6 pm (with extended summer hours).

Whether you’re a baseball fan or not, Saint Paul’s CHS Field is the place to be. It’s a lively atmosphere with exciting events worth taking your kids to experience.
CHS Field is home to the minor league St. Paul Saints and hosts many summer and fall concerts. It also hosts charity softball games, movie screenings, and yoga classes.
The stadium can seat over 7,000 people and has plenty of standing room. It also has many amenities that set it apart from other baseball parks. For starters, there are fire pits where spectators can roast marshmallows or hot dogs.
Each game night boasts a theme—from Star Wars night to Princess night (where kids get free tiaras). One of the more popular nights is when they host a barking dog parade in which all dogs get in free with their owners! Think of all the fun that comes with such a show; your kids will definitely love it!
In addition to these unique features, there are also several places to grab drinks or food while watching the game.
5. Go To Your Local Park Or Playground
Make a trip to your local park or playground.
The Twin Cities have dozens of beautiful gardens for you to explore. Whether you’re looking for a playground with swings and slides, or an excellent spot for a family picnic, you’ll find it at one of our many parks.
A few favorites include Minnehaha Park and Lakewood Cemetery. If you’re looking for something a bit different, check out Boom Island, where you can see cargo ships make their way down the Mississippi River!
