This summer I am sharing fun ways you can be On the Go in MCO, and this week we are looking at free (or mostly free) indoor activities!
Don’t forget that you can catch these great events and more on the Obie & Ashley Unfiltered Podcast!
Last week we looked at fun ways to explore the outdoors for under $10 a car load, and this week we’re looking at fun ways to beat the heat with free (or mostly free) indoor activities for the kids.
On the Go in MCO: Indoor Activities for Kids
Free Bowling All Summer Long
Aloma Bowl: 2530 Aloma Avenue, Winter Park, FL 32792
Until September 5, 2021, children 15 and under can play two free games of bowling with the purchase of shoe rentals Monday through Friday from 11 am – 5 pm.
Online registration in advance is required and a parent or guardian must be present but they do not need to pay to take advantage of this offer.
While the Orange County Liberty Service programming may look a little different than it has in the past, they are still offering families free activities and incentives for summer reading!
With your OCLS library card you can attend their Summer Livestream Series of performances, learn new crafts, and kids can enjoy their own events where learning is fun.
And we can’t talk about the Library without mentioning a Summer Reading Program, and there’s still time for kids to join Tales & Tails!
Kids, ages 6 to 12, can participate in virtual events, track your reading and complete fun activities right at home to earn badges.
Also this summer, OCLS is working with Orange County Public Schools Food & Nutrition Services to offer grab-n-go meals at no charge to children and young adults under 18. Check out the locations here.
Museums with a Local Flair
Orlando is home to some amazing museum, and throughout the city you can find smaller museums that focus on the history of our area.
Some of my top picks are the Central Florida Railroad Museum, Orlando Fire Museum, Winter Park History Museum, Lake Mary Historical Museum, Cornell Fine Arts Museum, and the Holocaust Museum in Maitland.
These hidden gems are all free, and are guaranteed to give your entire family a new appreciation for the City Beautiful!
