Summer vacation is days away and Nevada City offers so many great activities for things to do for kids. So regardless of what your family likes to do, here’s a list of all sorts of ideas of things to do. And scroll down to the bottom for our great kid-centric giveaway!
Things to do with Kids:
Visit 49er Fun Park and play mini golf, go karts, batting cages or the arcades.
Jason Auld, owner of Mountain Recreation, loves taking his 3 kids outdoors during the summer season. “There are great flat water kayaking and SUP as a fun family friendly activity. Short distance backpacking is a great way to get kids outside and blow their minds with nature. Just need to focus on keeping it achievable, fun and interesting. Often you don’t need to hike in more than a mile or two to really feel like your way out there. The less taxing and grueling it is the more the kids will enjoy it.” Click here for information about their rental programs if you want to rent a SUP or kayak.
And if you’ve made it this far, I’ve got a special treat for one lucky kid. Post a comment on your favorite summer activity and one family will get a prize package including: 2 free movie passes to the Del Oro Children’s movie screenings, a giveaway to 49er Fun Park (2 free go-kart and 2 mini golf rounds), a Treats Treatsicle, 2 general admission Nevada County Fair tickets, a $10 gift certificate to The Artist Workshop and free 2 hour kayak or SUP rental from Mountain Rec. Winner will be announced on Wednesday, June 10th. *Edited to say the winner is Joyce.
