Rainy Days, dont let it dampen the fun!

In an earlier blog we wrote about affordable places to take children in the Triangle. Since its spring and the rain is here I thought a follow up blog about rainy day activities in the area would be handy. The following is a list of top 5 Triangle indoor places for fun with the kids.

  1. Northgate Mall in Durham (1058 West Club Boulevard) has a carousel, bouncy house and a train for children. It is located near Entrance 2 and rides are $2 each or you can purchase 6 rides for $10.
  2. Morehead Planetarium is another wonderful place to take the kids. They offer shows inside of their dome including Magic Treehouse in space (based off the book series). Entrance is $7.25 for adults, $6 for children and free for members. More information about times and location can be found at http://www.moreheadplanetarium.org/
  3. Starting in June, most of the theaters around the area will be offering children’s movies at a discounted price. For example, Southpoint Cinemas will show an older child’s film every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 10:30am for $1 each. Snacks will also be available for $1. You might want to buy tickets in advance because they tend to sell out. Visit their website to find out what will be playing each week. http://www.southpointcinemas.com/
  4. There are many kids museums around the area that are budget friendly. There is Kidzu in Chapel Hill, Marbles in Raleigh and Museum of Life and Science in Durham. All three of these offer memberships if you plan on going often. Kidzu is $5 for children 2 and up and for adults. Children 1-2 are $2 and children 11 months and under are free. http://www.kidzuchildrensmuseum.org/  At Marbles, admission is $5 for children and adults (children under 1 are free). http://www.marbleskidsmuseum.org/  Children under 3 get in free at the Museum of Life and Science. Children over 3 are $10 and adults are $14. http://www.ncmls.org/visit
  5. Storytime is another great rainy day activity. Pottery Barn Kids located at Southpoint Mall in Durham has a storytime every Tuesday from 11-11:30am. It is free. http://www.potterybarnkids.com/customer-service/store-events.html  There is also storytime at the Barnes and Noble in Raleigh located at 5959 Triangle Town Blvd Unit 2107. It is on Fridays at 10:30am. More information can be found at http://store-locator.barnesandnoble.com/event/3233615
