What’s more fun than having fun with grandkids? Not much else if really enjoy every moment with your grandchildren.
I’ve spoken to residents here at The Colony Golf & Bay Club who have grandchildren and sometimes they get into a rut and can’t think of fun things they can do with their grandkids.
The good thing is, Southwest Florida boasts awesome weather year round so this list incorporates a lot of outdoor activity.
Go for a walk or bike ride around The Colony. There are wonderful walking and biking paths throughout the entire community and it’s safe for children of all ages. In fact, biking is the transportation of choice for most residents! It’s a great way to stay active and be outdoors. You can even stop over to The Country Club when you’re done and grab a beverage!
· Visit the water park. Collier County’s premier water park, Sun-N-Fun Lagoon is a great place to take the kids. It offers one million gallons of water fun that will thrill children, parents and grandparents alike. Make sure to bring your sunblock!
· Visit the zoo. A great place for families, The Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens offers a nature path almost a mile in length that winds past rare and beautiful animals residing within a 52 acre jungle of exotic plants.
· Go to the museum. No, I don’t mean a typical adult museum, I’m talking about an awesome children’s museum in Naples, Florida. The Golisano Children’s Museum is packed with 30,000 square feet of interactive exhibits. With 12 hands-on exhibit galleries, there is plenty of fun and learning to be had. You can also their calendar for events and camps.
· Visit an adventure park. King Richard’s Park is billed as the #1 Stop for Fun in Naples, Florida. They feature a popular go cart track and video games along with exciting attractions and features like Laser Tag, Dance Machine, and interactive video games.
· Play mini golf. A stone’s throw away from The Colony, Congo River Golf is a challenging miniature golf designed giant waterfalls, rocky summits, mysterious caves and tropical rainforests.
· There’s always the favorite go-to among residents and tourists – the beach!
· And if you encounter a bit of rain during the day, you can always occupy their time with a movie at Silverspot Cinema, an indoor picnic, or tea party!
These are just a few ideas, but trust me, there are plenty of other activities to enjoy with your grandkids.
