  • Get Some Movement In :

    The Main Event in Newark is the perfect place for family fun! Between bowling, virtual reality and laser tag, there are lasting memories to be made at this family-friendly restaurant. Nearby, Sky Zone Trampoline Park includes wipe-out style courses with bouncy floors, foam zones, dodgeball, swings and more! For more courses, visit Bear, Delaware to find the Delaware Rock Gym with over 11,000 square feet of climbing surfaces. Or, for an in-season activity, visit Centre Ice Arena for ice skating and bumper cars on ice! Lefty’s Alley and Eats in Lewes also provides hours of fun between virtual axe throwing, bowling, karaoke and arcade games for the entire family. For more activities, including outdoor walks and tours, visit the Delaware State Park’s website for daily events and programs.

  • Learn Something New :

    Visiting the Delaware Children’s Museum in Wilmington is a great way for everyone in the family to learn something new. Between the arts and sciences, the museum provides a fun hands-on and immersive experience that teaches children through movement and play. Down in Dover, visit the Air Mobility Command Museum, a World War II-era site, for an up-close view of historic planes and jet transports. You can also test your skills and try “flying” in a simulator!

  • Catch a Show :

    Whether you prefer a showing on the big screen or a live performance, you can find both in Delaware! Up North, visit the Delaware Children’s Theatre for live performances, including The Little Mermaid, or Penn Cinema Riverfront for the latest films. For more cinema, explore Milford Movies 9 or Midway Movies. Also South, Clear Space Theatre in Rehoboth Beach has monthly performances of various shows and productions.

  • Be a Little Creative :

    Up North in Wilmington, you can find the Delaware Art Museum! With its collection of art and special exhibitions, you can wander the museum or take a class. On. Feb. 19, youths can participate in an artistic “Making Masterpieces” day camp. Or, at Your Creation Station, you can paint pottery, fuse glass, paint, tie-dye and more! If traveling South, visit Rehoboth Beach’s Out of the Box DIY for creative DIY kits and artist-led workshops. For additional classes and programs, check out Delaware State Parks’ upcoming events, such as Nature Art in the Park at Cape Henlopen State Park on Jan. 20 and Feb. 3.
