SEEN teamed up with LittleGuide Detroit to round up fun activities for your little ones this month. Check out the top 5 list of local spots to hang with your kids before they head back to school.
1. DETROIT KID CITY
29115 Greenfield Road, Southfield
Detroit Kid City is a creative play space that allows parents to relax and chat at the café while their little ones play safely and within eyesight. Kids can put on their imagination hats and get creative in the miniature town that includes a barber, market, art space and music shop.
2. GOLDFISH SWIM SCHOOL
Featured Location: 2388 Cole St., Suite 101, Birmingham
Goldfish Swim School makes swim lessons fun for parents and kids. Learn the basics in class, join a swim team or have a family night out on open pool days. With multiple locations around Metro Detroit, and 90-degree water temperatures, it’s easy to dive in for all ages.
3. RAY’S ICE CREAM
4233 Coolidge Highway, Royal Oak
A classic sweet spot for the little ones! Nothing beats a good scoop of ice cream during a hot summer day, or even for an after-school treat, and Ray’s has plenty of flavors to keep the whole family happy. With massive portion sizes, you could share a cone … but you won’t want to.
4. THE ROBOT GARAGE
Featured Location: 637 S. Eton St., Birmingham
We want our kids to love STEM, but we don’t love stepping on little Legos in the middle of the night. The Robot Garage is the perfect place for kids to tinker with an endless supply of Legos and robotic toys without the mess at home.
5. DETROIT RIVERFRONT
1340 Atwater St., Detroit
Whether it’s an early morning stroll with a big cup of coffee, an afternoon splashing in the Mt. Elliott Park or evening rides on the carousel, you’ll find something to do all day long at the Detroit Riverfront.
