The Fantastic Umbrella Factory!
Okay, so it's not actually a factory, and you're probably not likely to find any umbrellas around. But this South County treasure is perfect ground for a day of wandering. The eclectic property's features are sure to entertain both you and the kids. Enjoy several gardens of beautiful perrenial plants, flowers, and greenhouses. You can browse an array of fun little craft and apparel stores, and your child can make some new friends–the Factory is home to two goats, three emus, and a bunch of ducks! Getting hungry? Stop into the café for a dish for every palate. 4820 Old Post Rd., Charlestown, RI. (401) 354-1060. Click here for hours and more info.
Hot Air Balloons!
Watch magician and juggler Scott Jameson perform amazing feats before your eyes! This family show has received rave reviews, from having the audience laughing out loud to sitting on the edge of their seats in suspense. Umbrellas will be plucked from thin air, a drawing will come to life, basketballs will be spun and juggled, and the audience will travel through time. Check out the details here. Can't wait? Get a taste of the action here. July 21, 3-4pm. Gore Place, 52 Gore St., Waltham, MA. (781) 894-2798.
Just looking to get out of the house for a bit? Head to the quaint Pawtuxet Village and explore! The town boasts water views at Pawtuxet Cove, small shops, restaurants, and cafés, the peaceful Pawtuxet Park, and of course, the newly-renovated Village Playground on Commerical Street. You can rest assured that it's fenced in, clean, and shady–lest you melt in the heat–but you might have to put in a little work to get your child to leave. The playground has more than enough play structures, swings, slides, and more to keep them busy for hours.
