Winter in Buffalo giving you the blues? Don't know what to do? For at least 6 months of the year here it seems like you are either shoveling yourself out of the driveway or doing a bucket brigade in your basement (maybe that's an over statement, but you know what I'm talking about). Well, as a stay at home mom it's important to know where you can go during the winter with you kids. Here's a list of a few of our favorite spots:
*McDonalds - Several locations in the area have an indoor Playland. Although the McDonalds website shows locations and whether they have a playland or not, I find that it is not accurate. Here are a few I've noticed that DO have a playland but are not listed to have one on the website:
- 2567 UNION RD, CHEEKTOWAGA, NY 14227, (716)656-7846
- 4987 TRANSIT RD, WILLIAMSVILLE, NY 14221, (716)204-0089
- 2058 ELMWOOD AVE, BUFFALO, NY 14216, (716)332-0206
*Boulevard Mall - In the food court at the Boulevard Mall is the Play Place where infants and toddlers can play and a carousel.
*Eastern Hills Mall - frequently has expos and other fun things for the family and the kids to do.
*The Aquarium at Niagra - if you have a Zoo pass you get 1/2 off admission and kids 3 and under are free! Make sure and plan your visit during one of the shows or animal feeding times so you get the biggest bang for your buck, also take along a lunch or snack - they have a picnic area too!
*Take advantage of the classes listed in the previous post at Pottery Barn, Kindermusik, Gymboree, your library or the Washington Street Music Classes.
Although we will not be venturing out for these finds this winter due to the new additions to our family, there's no reason why you can't (and I'll post it for safe keeping for myself too)!
So, what are your favorite spots?
