With the warmer months approaching and schools closing for the summer, local parents will be looking for fun activities for kids in Elyria. Here are some of the best kid-friendly events and locations in the city so you can get a head start on planning your summer.
Elyria has plenty of parks and natural landmarks that are perfect for family outings, like Bear Cave, Sandy River Reservation, and Black River Reservation. With walking trails and picnic areas galore, you can go for a day trip or spend the weekend out camping.
You might also be looking for educational opportunities to keep your children sharp over the summer. Check out the Loraine County Historical Society and the Hickories Museum to get a glimpse into local history and sign up for the summer camps, computer labs, and much more offered by the Horizon Activities Centers.
Elyria is also a great place for festivals and one-day events that will take place all throughout the summer. Artsy kids will love the Painting in the Park Family Fun Day 2018, which takes place in July, as well as Crafty Kids at the end of May. And the Heinen’s Spring Fruit & Veggie Fun Festival in May has all kinds of fun activities for kids and also promotes healthy eating.
