It's spring break...What to do with the kids???  Here are a few ideas:

Get out in nature and take the kids to one of the events at Usery Park  like the desert scavenger hunt, outdoor animal games, or others.

Check out one of the MANY free activities for kids this week at Ikea in Tempe.

The Flow Rider at Rhodes Pool is open during spring break. 

Visit a new park in Mesa that you've never been to.

Or check out one of these events around town.
