Play

Kids can bounce, jump and play at these indoor fun centers. Several feature activities for parents, too, such as relaxing lounges and free WiFi. From swimming at indoor waterparks to a round of skee-ball in the arcade, there's plenty the whole family can enjoy together.

Things to remember:

• Call ahead to confirm the open play hours. Many of these attractions also book birthday parties and may not be open to the public during those times.

• Know the rules for bringing outside food (many places don't allow it).

• Socks are required for most jungle gyms, so make sure kids wear them when you visit.

• Pack hand sanitizer or antibacterial wipes to keep kids germ-free.

• Don't forget to check the centers' websites for deals & discounts
