Remember when you were a kid and the coolest thing in the world was to have a birthday party at McDonald’s?  

You don’t remember that?  

Maybe it was just me.  I never got a birthday party at McDonald’s, and I always wanted one.

I believe McDonald’s still does birthday parties for kids if you are interested, but there are more unique places to book your celebration.   Here are some incredibly cool places to host festivities.

Come to think of it, today McDonald’s may be considered unique and a little retro.

The 21 aircraft displayed in our air park includes fighters, cargo planes, helicopters, and utility aircraft used by the US military from pre-WWII to present day. In the hangars are displays of ejections seats, flight simulators, jet and piston engines, plus weaponry from WWI to present day.  Also on display are ancillary artifacts, historical documents, photographs, manuscripts and books. There are also Doolittle and Tuskegee Airmen exhibits.    –MN Air National Guard Website

Firefighters Hall & Museum
664 22nd Ave NE
Minneapolis, MN 55418
$100/party of 20 guests

After your group arrives, we start off with a fire safety demonstration, which takes about
10 minutes time. Then we provide a tour of the museum, which includes some history of
firefighting. The kids do a bucket brigade, slide a fire pole, pull a fire alarm etc. as part of that
tour. In the summer the kids get to pump water into a simulated apartment building 
outside. We also provide a fire truck ride for everybody in the party (April through October,
weather permitting)   –Firefighters Hall & Museum Website

I’ve got a little guy who wants to be a firefighter when he grows up.  This would be the perfect location!  Who do you know who would love this?

“We celebrated my daughter’s seventh birthday at Heartfelt. It was the best birthday experience we’ve had. The kids spent the time together working on a craft project. Afterwards, they had the freedom to play and wander through the creative environment. Not only did the kids have a great time, several of the parents stayed because the store has such a warm, relaxing vibe. Absolutely the easiest, best party we’ve had in the past seven years!” – Christi
