Fun activities are a part of growing up, and it is important that every family partake in some family fun at least once a month. One of the more family-friendly areas in Alabama is Daphne, an area that is rich in history and affordable neighborhoods for young up-and-coming families. If you are new to the area, it can seem like a daunting task to start finding different family activities. Luckily, there are quite a few affordable and fun options here for people of all ages.
The American Sport Art Museum & Archives
Next up is a fun activity for the sports lovers in your life, and it is one of few of its kind in Alabama. The American Sport Art Museum & Archives is an exclusive part of Daphne, Alabama. This sports museum is an enjoyable experience for anyone who loves sports and especially loves sports history.
This museum is believed to have the world’s largest collection of sports-related art. They also have more than just paintings; there is an excellent collection of artifacts and statues as well. The curators are quick to answer any questions that first-time visitors or even repeat visitors might have.
Gator Alley Boardwalk
Another excellent family-friendly attraction is the Gator Alley Boardwalk, a unique park with an unexpected twist. This is actually a gator park – yes that’s right, alligators. If your children or significant other loves reptiles, this is a must-visit. The entire park looks like something out of a crocodile Dundee movie, and there are plenty of precautions taken by the staff to make sure that visitors are safely out of the alligators’ reach. The park also has a food area, so after a hard day of “alligator hunting,” patrons can sit down and have a bite to eat. Another good thing is that this park is open year around, so no matter what the season is you can check out the alligators.
Kangaroos Family Fun Center
The finally family destination to make the list is the Kangaroos Family Fun Center, a wild and wonderful place for children to get all of their kangaroo-like energy out. Unlike the Gator Alley Boardwalk, you won’t see any actual kangaroos here, but your kids might look like kangaroos once they start jumping around on the inflatable bounce houses that fill the building. The fun center is also a perfect place to hold a birthday party.
Finding family activities can seem like a challenge, but with these Daphne attractions, finding a fun and affordable way to spend the weekend is a breeze. After a day of family fun, head down to Chris Myers Nissan and find the perfect new Nissan for your family.
