Craving an adventure close to home? Planning a day of fun and games can be intimidating, especially if you have a family with a wide variety of ages and needs. Add onto that the stress of trying to practice social distancing and care for your family and the task can seem too tiring. To ease the burden of planning a fun-filled day, IFM staff has compiled a simple itinerary to please thrill seekers and bookworms alike.
