If you have time before heading to lunch, play at a playground like the one at Hemisfair Park.
For lunch, head to Backyard on Broadway for pizza andplaying in the backyard. Yum. After you’ve filled your belly, spend the afternoon exploring The DoSeum. What are you looking forward to most? Playing with machines on the Force Course or running your own business in Little Town?
Wrap up the day with a family dinner. Head to one of our local farmers’ markets to pick out foods you can make together. Over dinner, talk about everything you did today. Ask questions like:
🧠 What was something new you learned? 🤡 What was something funny that happened? 👀 What would we do differently if we did that again? 👍 What do you definitely want to do again? (And again and again…)
Grown-ups — take pictures along the way and share them with us. Also, send us more family-friendly recommendations and we may just feature them in an upcoming newsletter.
What was the worst thing you ever bought? Why was it so bad?

Planning a spring getaway? Don’t forget to add TSA PreCheck enrollment to your pre-vacay to-do list.
The government program provides an expedited security lane at 200+ airports for travelers that pass a security screening — which includes a short application and a 10-minute in-person enrollment appointment — and are given a Known Traveler Number. Bonus: The screening is good for five years and costs $78.
The main benefit of enrolling? Save time when traveling. Recent data found that 96% of TSA PreCheck passengers spent less than five minutes at airport security checkpoints.
