If you’re looking for your next great family adventure, or someplace different to take the kids, we have you covered. Spending a day out with the kids is a great way to recapture your own childlike curiosity and love of play, so we’ve included plenty of options that will make the adults as happy as the kids. Below are some of the best, most unique, and most beloved things to do with your kids in Birmingham.
Birmingham Children’s Theatre
The spot for a fun night out with the kids. The live performances at BCT are always creative and often include music, new animal friends, and special holiday-themed shows. If your kids are fans of puppetry, BCT also features a cardboard puppet theatre. Beyond performances, you can sign your kids up for camps or workshops with the theater company.
Red Mountain Park
Red Mountain Park is a 1,500-acre park surrounding Red Mountain itself. The park is a perfect place to take an adventurous hike through the forest or go for a bike ride under the canopy of the trees. But one of the best things to be found at Red Mountain Park is the Aerial Adventure Tours. These tours feature treetop obstacle courses, a climbing tower, and ziplines. Purchase tickets in advance for the best experience.
Oak Mountain Demonstration Farm
Oak Mountain State Park offers a variety of amazing activities and experiences. A visit to the park itself is a great way to spend the day with the family. You can enjoy swimming, fishing, horseback riding and more. But one of the best-hidden gems at the park is the Demonstration Farm, where you and the kids can play with, pet, and feed sheep, goats, donkeys, pigs, Shetland ponies, chickens, and even a peacock!
A trip to the zoo is always a family favorite. Kids will love the Red Diamond Express Train and carousel. You can choose to wander the zoo yourselves, marveling at all the animals, or take part in one of several special experiences offered by the zoo. Try feeding the giraffes or learn everything you can on the “Goat Walk”. Whatever adventure you choose, the kids are sure to have fun while learning about the world around them.
