11 Tours of Fall Color And Bonus Splurges

Fall color is one reason this is my favorite time of year.  I love the fun days of summer and the hopeful days of spring and the quietness of winter (until it starts to go on eight months and more, then it’s just being passive aggressive), but my absolute without a doubt favorite time of the year is the fall.  When the air turns crisp in the evenings and I can smell the earthy scent of the maturing plants, I shiver in delight. I grin when I can pull out my favorite sweater or jeans and lace up my cute leather boots while packing my children’s school supplies into their backpacks. While making a cup of coffee and wrapping myself in my favorite afghan to sit on my front step, I sigh.

Get Moving: Tot Times, Open Play, Gym & Swim Spots for Tots in the Twin Cities

Tot Times and Open Gym were my savior when my firstborn was a squirrelly toddler who needed a space to run off his pent-up wintertime energy. A few years later, I had four littles under the age of 7 who were climbing the walls and testing the limits of my sanity. Perhaps you find yourself in the same boat? Browse through the listings below to find an open gym, open playtime or open swim near you and treat yourself to a (near) guaranteed naptime:Tot Times
