Things to do for Active Kids in INDEPENDENCE with kids

Children have a lot of energy….that’s what we LOVE about them…so it’s natural to look for things to do with active kids who just want to get active.

Look no further than Independence, Missouri!  Active kids in this The Show Me State city have SO many choices…they won’t know where to start! 

This wonderful city not only has places for kids to use up that energy, but the whole family. Activities such as indoor climbing are the perfect way to spend time together as a family. Why not try and get that hole in one with Mini Golf? STRIKE….you must have found the ten pin bowling! 

Finding great places to visit with children can be hard, but not in Independence - and not with Family Days Out!

Get ready to return home exhausted, because there is kids fun around every corner….and you will be part of it.
