AFFORDABLE VALLEYWIDE ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS

Any idea what to do for fun for your children and stay cool at the same time?  How about visiting one of 9 splash pads in the valley……FOR FREE!!  You can enjoy restaurants and shops nearby on your way to the splash pad.   My clients are constantly asking me where to take their children for a fun time while staying cool in the summer.   Malls and movies aren’t always the answer.   Phoenix has so much more to offer.

 

There are also 3 major water parks in the valley.  Check out the fun and enjoyment the kids will have staying cool during the hot Arizona summer.  There’s still time!!  Now get out there and have some cool fun!!
