School may be back in but the family adventures don’t have to stop. Whether you are looking for a staycation or an easy weekend getaway, Albany is your family fun destination.

All-American Fun Park – A popular birthday party choice, All-American Fun Park will entertain your crew with arcade games, bowling and laser tag. The fun continues outside with bumper boats, go karts and two different putt putt (or mini golf) courses.

Chehaw – Chehaw truly is nature’s playground. Choose between disc golf, the BMX track, nature trails and a cool playground for a full day of adventure. And, that’s just the park! Continue the fun inside the zoo. Come on a weekend and spend a day feeding the rhino, alligators and our favorite camel. Even take the family on a safari on the African Vedlt ride.

Flint RiverQuarium and Turtle Grove Play Park – Enjoy a natural setting in Riverfront Park with a picnic and allow the little ones to burn some energy at the community built Turtle Grove Play Park! Complete with monkey bars, swings, slides and more, your child will have a blast. Have a toddler? No worries, there is a Tot lot! Afterwards, walk over to the Flint RiverQuarium for the dive shows on the weekends at 2pm. Even check out the new touch tank. Come on a first and third Sunday of the month and let your children have a discovery day!

The Clay Spot – Combine shopping with painting at The Clay Spot. Add new dishware designed by your little one while having a family fun day. Choose between plates, mugs, and more pottery to paint and take home today.

Wetherbee Planetarium at Thronateeska Heritage Center– Take your family to outer space and back by lunch at Wetherbee Planetarium any Thursday thru Saturday. Learn about molecules, black holes and more. Check the lineup of shows here. Visit on a Science Saturday and enjoy crafts and a special astronomy presentation!

This is only the start of your next family memories. Looking for more things to do and see in our area? Check for all the fun awaiting your arrival.
