On a warm winter day my family visited the Soldiers National Cemetery, the David Wills House and a few battlefield stops in Gettysburg with my first and second graders.
Pairing the David Wills House with a visit to Soldiers National Cemetery is an excellent idea because the focus of both sites is Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and the dedication of the cemetery.
There are videos and a couple interactive exhibits at the David Wills House-- but this museum is most interesting for kids ages 10 and up who are fluent readers. We went through the junior ranger activity guide for the museum and that helped my younger kids understand the importance of the site.
We have visited Gettysburg a few times with our young children, and I feel that looking at Gettysburg with a focus on Lincoln and his Gettysburg Address is a bit more familiar and accessible than trying to understand the movement of the troops and the casualties of war.
This place has provided fun and a safe family environment for my family for 15+years! Anyone that doesn't like it probably should just not complain and don't go there. Go tear your wheels up on the street you jerks. The management as well as Heather have treated my family with respect every time we have gone to Cal Skate. Thank you Cal Skate for hanging in there when times were tough and don't mind all these haters. They can go break an arm at a skate park. I'll be at Cal Skate tonight and every chance I get:)!
Brighton is a reasonably priced and really good for kids. They have a ski school for kids starting at 4 years old. They also have a magic carpet lift, which you can take your kids to learn skiing. All kids under 10 ski free with skiing adult. They have a daycare for little ones while mom and dad shredding the snow))
This old home of Innoventions is now Star Wars Launch Bay, where you can see artifacts from the films, buy Star Wars merch, and even meet and greet with characters from the film.
The Light Side is always a meet & greet with Chewbacca (who gives the most amazing hugs) while the Dark Side currently rotates between Darth Vader & Kilo Ren-- both of them are intimidating to meet in person!
I came for lunch. I ordered a bento box and my daughter had chicken teriyaki. The chicken was very tender and plentiful. The sushi rolls were fresh and tasty and bigger than expected They also start you off with edamame, shrimp tempura/asparagus salad, and miso soup on the house.
The food was fantastic, staff was friendly and quick, and everything was great. They even send you off with a cream puff for dessert. I would come here again when I have a craving for Japanese food.
