Between Florissant parks, libraries and other special places, families can plan a new activity each week.
Now that summer has officially started, many parents are ready to spend some quality time with their kids. Florissant families have several fun, inexpensive options for outings and activities close to home.
We’ve compiled a short list of some of our favorite family-friendly places to go and things to do in the area to help you get started on your summer plans.
Entertain Their Brains--There are a number of resources, classes and activities that children and parents can enjoy at the St. Louis County Library-Florissant Valley Branch. Take the kids to story time, enjoy movie nights and participate in other fun, free activities. The library also has youth book sales, so you can pick up old favorites and fun new summer reads. Check out the library’s event calendar or our daily event calendar for more ideas on getting your kids involved in reading.
