Fun things to do in syracuse

Right in the heart of New York State is Syracuse, a historic community that makes a fun, entertaining and relaxing family day out! There are plenty of kid friendly attractions in this vibrant city. Ready to hear all about them!

Where to begin!? 

Do your kids LOVE experimenting, playing, being creative, and learning? Well then, why not head over to places like Wonderworks or the Museum of Science and Technology. Amazingly hands-on days out where they can touch, play, pull and move!

Bit of culture needed? Why not visit the Everson Museum of Art? They are never too young to get into the art world!

If you have active kids, they might love places like the indoor karting at Pole Position Raceway, or the Black Mamba Skate Park. Pow Pow! That’s the sound of the laser tag at The Fun Warehouse which is…yep. FUN!

Maybe they might prefer the beautiful animals at Rosamond Gifford Zoo? Always a great option for the entire family, no matter what age!

So soak up the atmosphere and excitement of Syracuse, and enjoy your New York family day out!
