​3 Kid-Friendly Activities in Flagstaff

If you’re planning a winter trip to Mormon Lake and Flagstaff with your kids, it’s best to prepare your activities in advance. This way, you don’t run out of ideas when your little ones get tired of hiking and sledding treks. Luckily, Flagstaff offers several fun activities for kids throughout the year. If you’re wanting to get away from the cold for a bit, here are a few options to keep in mind during your stay.

1. Open Gym for Toddlers

Do you have a youngster who is full of energy and loves to try new things? Both Summit and Flagstaff gymnastics throw an open gym once or twice a week for kids under the age of 5. Kids can enjoy bouncy playhouses, a giant foam pit, an obstacle course challenge and other fun gym equipment while they’re there. Dates and times vary depending on which gym you choose, so make sure to visit the gym’s website for details.

2. Museum of Northern Arizona

The Museum of Northern Arizona (MoNAZ)is a great spot for tots, kids, tweens and teens. Embrace Southwest history by learning about Native American artifacts, dinosaur bones, art and jewelry, and viewing a variety of other temporary displays. MoNAZ claims to be better than an ordinary “boring” museum, so give them a try one day during your visit!

3. Flagstaff Aquaplex

The Flagstaff Aquaplex provides hours of entertainment for your young ones. Not only is there an indoor pool, but there’s also a climbing wall, fitness room (for adults) and open gym time. The Aquaplex is open 7 days a week and offers out-of-towners a day pass to enter the multi-activity recreation center. Visit their website for more information on hours and available activities throughout the week.

After a long day of fun, unwind and enjoy the beauty of Northern Arizona without having to stay in the busy downtown area. Mormon Lake Lodge is a quick 30-minute drive from downtown, and offers that comfy, cozy outdoor feel. Whether you’re looking to jam pack your schedule with fun activities, or to take it easy by the campfire, Mormon Lake Lodge offers plenty of cabin options to accommodate you and your family as you explore the surrounding area.
