Editor's Note: We’re glad you clicked on our new Grab & Go Kids Planner.
We've assembled a weekly calendar of kid-friendly activities and new places to try out with children.
Each week, we'll give you the information on the five best family activities or events for the week.
You're time-pressed enough, so we're happy to do the research and find the best things to do and places to go, both locally and within reasonable striking distance.
Look for the kids’ planner each Tuesday, and help us build the planner with your own suggestions and tips—just add them to the comment box. Even if you disagree with our picks, let us know. We want to hear from you.
