Family Summer Fun

Family Summer Fun 2012

During the summer, two things increase: the temperature and the amount of time your kids spend at home — and both can be stressful.

Here are some fun and engaging activities for the whole family to enjoy so you can bank on some family summer fun!

Have you heard of the Heard Museum?

This museum has more than 32,000 pieces to display and is one of Phoenix’s first cultural attractions. Founded in 1929, the Heard Museum did not cease to amaze Arizonans, both young and old, of its variety of collections and exhibitions. For more information and to view upcoming events, visit its website at heard.org.

The Desert Botanical Garden

If you are looking for a more earthy and natural experience, the Desert Botanical Garden is the place for you. And if you didn’t know, they also have the “Music in the Garden” series of concerts and events, where the Garden hosts some of the most talent musicians. For a list of these events, visit dpg.org 

Yee-Haw! The Rawhide Western Town and Steakhouse

Instead of complaining about the life of the west — and its heat — embrace it! And if you have little ones who would love to be cowboys and cowgirls when they “grow up,” you can’t miss out on Rawhide Western Town and Steakhouse. Activities include bull riding, gold panning, camel rides, stunt shows and more. For more information, visit rawhide.com.

More fun, less heat? As You Wish

As You Wish pottery painting place is the perfect place for you and your kids to enjoy a day indoors. Here you can choose a pottery piece, select from a variety of colors, and paint it the way you like. You can then pick up your now fired and blazed pottery piece a few days after you’ve painted it. This makes for great memories. For more information on the way it works, visit asyouwishpottery.com.
