Spring Break Part 1 - Museums and Various Recreational Sites

During the next few days we will feature some quick posts about activities that you can enjoy for Spring Break. It may or may not be your Spring Break, but we want everyone to try to celebrate a little more this upcoming week - it's spring and you live in Mesa. Be happy. Forget the economy for a bit. Some of the ideas will cost money and some will be activities that you can do for free. Some may require you to get out of the house and enjoy the spring air and some activities will be ones you can do from the comforts of your home. We just hope we can help you put a little extra zip in your spring this week.

To start off some of our Spring Break posts, we thought we would remind everyone of the fabulous museums and various recreational sites that we have in our area. These are places that generally have an entrance fee, however, provide a fun service for children and adults. We know we have posted about most of these before, but we would just like to remind everyone that there is a huge variety of things to do around here.

The Arizona Museum for Youth - you can't miss out on Artville for the younger ones and then there is Recycled into Art or African Stone sculptures for all ages.

The Natural History Museum - dinosaurs, Mars, poop, the Hohokam people - this museum explores it all.

Red Mountain Multigenerational Center - climbing wall, fitness center, a get out and get moving kind of place.

McCormick Stillman Train Park in Scottsdale - a fabulous train to ride, carousel rides, park and museum. A little far, but in my opinion, well worth the drive.

The Phoenix Zoo - Spring Break is not a reason to stop learning. Go and see first hand all those wonderful animals.

Hall of Flame - a museum all about firefighting, from heroes to truck and everything in between.

Mesa Historical Museum - visit the Wallace and Ladmo exhibit or even Play Ball: The Cactus League Experience.

X-Treme Play - have a fun filled day with indoor inflatables.

Broadway Palm Dinner Theater - see Singin' in the Rain while enjoying a meal.

Family Day at Cinemark - take advantage of a little Monday movie deal today.

Queen Creek Olive Mill - visit and tour this working mill.

Ice Rinks - feeling like summers coming too soon? Hit the ice at various ice rinks across the valley.

Light Rail - you still haven't gone for a spin on the light rail? Why not take a trip to Phoenix this week via the light rail?

Picture Show - try out the new discount theater. Remember Tuesdays are only $1.

Freestone Park in Gilbert - ride the mini train, carousel, and another small amusement ride, or maybe just feed the ducks and enjoy the various playgrounds.

Stay tuned for country in the city outlets and outdoorsy and indoorsy stuff.
