A Strike of Fun: Twin Cities Bowling Alleys

Want a great way to get out of the house on these long cold days? One of our top choices as a family is vising bowling alleys. This works for all ages probably starting at age 3. Rent your fashionable bowling shoes, pick a ball, get the bumpers set up, and away we go!

Keep in mind, bowling doesn’t have to be limited to a winter activity. Air-conditioned alleys can be a great escape from the summer heat – and if you’ve signed your family up for the Kids Bowl Free program, you’ve got yourself a great budget outing.

The Twin Cities is packed full of bowling alleys to enjoy together. Here are some family favorites:
