"Bring a headlamp, jacket, and make sure your thighs are ready for a workout!"

We took our 4 kids on this hike ages 1,3,6,8 and had a blast! I would not recommend carrying kids on this one. I had a baby in a sling and it was really hard, my legs felt like jello for a couple days!. It is a pretty busy trail, with a constant stream of people in and out. It is dark inside, and can get chilly, so a headlamp is a must and a sweater or light jacket. Most of it is crawling over rocks and boulders, so you will need your hands free. Our kids did ok, some were scared of the dark, I turned around before the end with the younger kids. This is one where they need to take care of bathroom needs before they go in, and carry your trash out too. It was a fun experience and I can't wait to try it again with my older kids. I think a good age group would be 4 and up.

"Small zoo, combined with the park makes a great half day activity. "

We visited the zoo and park on a week day in late August. The weather was perfect and it helped that the zoo and park are shady.

My 3-year-old and I really enjoyed this adventure. It's perfect for toddlers and preschoolers because there aren't so many animals and people that it becomes overwhelming.

Our zoo favorites were the red panda, the avian walk (where guests walk through an enclosed area filled with birds), and the tortoises.

There were two playgrounds, perfect for all ages and the backdrop of the lake and grass is lovely.

If you are in the area, this is a great activity for kiddos.

"Love this celebration of all things Greek!"

This festival is a wonderful celebration of the Greek culture - the music and the dancing, and especially the food. There's a variety of delicious Greek pastries and food, and even a Greek deli, or bakaliko. To add to the fun, there's a midway  presented by Dreamland Amusements with games and rides from everyone, from fun kiddie rides to state-of-the-art thrill rides. This festival is always a fun time, whether you're Greek by blood or just Greek at heart.

"Florida's Political History and Its Story"

Restored to its original structure, the Florida Historic Capitol Museum unfolds the three branches of Florida government and its political history. My kids loved making their voices boom as they pretended to vote, make a motion to present a bill to the floor or arguing and filibustering. The hands-on exhibits and displays make the museum fun for all ages. Best part: IT'S FREE! (Donations greatly appreciated, though). Watch the website for special events.

"Cascades Park: a Playful Adventure"

My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed exploring Cascades Park. This gorgeous garden and architectural haven in the heart of Tallahassee is fun for kids of all ages!  Families will find an interactive water fountain, a children's play area and many Pokemon stops as well as a Korean War Memorial, a Prime Meridian Marker and Smokey Hollow Commemoration, a tribute to the residents of Smokey Hollow. Whether you cycle or stroll or run, this park is a must-see!
