Run around and play
Pump It Up Jump around the bouncy castles, climb the indoor rock wall, make an art project, bounce in the jumpy castles or batter up for T-ball. Afterwards, the kids will be ready to chow down.
Stop for lunch
Jersey Mike's For kids who love the classics, choose from more than a dozen hearty subs like the Club Supreme stuffed with homemade roast beef, turkey, swiss and bacon or the ham-and-cheese American. Four-inch versions of the sandwiches are available for small hands.
Taj Mahal For little foodies, pass the paneer with peas or chicken tikka masala. Affordable Indian dishes that rival anything on Devon Avenue can be found at this delightful spot.
Go to the museum
