Honey, I Dropped Off The Kids

Recreation options in the evenings provide kids entertainment and adults a stint of time to themselves.

Supervised summer night activities are a hit for the entire family. They get to stay up past bedtime, and you can plan your evening around a child-free night—if only a very brief one.
