What’s the hurry? We live life on cruise control, with plenty of hustle but none of the hassle. Welcome to friendly faces, abundant places and comfortable paces. Visiting means getting wherever you desire within five minutes, letting your kids explore without worry and filling your time with plans – or not. Sit back and relax or skip to your own beat in the Mt. Pleasant area.
Try Papa’s Pumpkin Patch and find your way through its corn maze or take a ride on the pumpkin train ride or pick your own fruits and veggies. Just down the road kids can get active at the Mt. Pleasant Discovery Museum where they will be inspired by the hands-on environment to laugh, play and learn all at the same time.
Slip on your ice skates and head to the I.C.E. Arena or get a little wild and crazy with a tumble at The Jump Station, where a trampoline park, foam pit, inflatables and more can turn an average day into a truly memorable event.
The local Veterans Memorial Library offers after school and year round activities for youths of all ages. Or why not take a creative art class through Art Reach of Mid-Michigan. There’s no better way to get some fresh air than hitting Island Park, which features a spray park in the summer and timber town available for fun and climbing all year long.
When it comes to events, Mt. Pleasant offers unique opportunities throughout the whole year. Parks and Recreation puts on an annual Daddy Daughter Dance for some winter fun, and celebrates the Easter holiday with a Teen Flashlight Egg Hunt and a Great Egg Scramble! In the summer attend free family-friendly events: Thrilling Thursday for family-friendly activities and dancing at a Max & Emily’s Summer Concert series performance during the week, and finish the weekend by getting cozy with snacks and an outdoor movie at Movies By Moonlight.
When it comes to spending time with your loved ones, it’s the small moments that make the biggest difference. Explore on or off the beaten path.
