Family Fun

Some of our local family favorite locations are Itasca Historical Society, where you can learn about world and local history. They also have an escape room that changes out every few months. The next must see spot is the Judy Garland & Children’s Museum. Let the kids fun free and check out the different exhibits. Lastly, stay at a hotel, vacation rental and enjoy a pool or beach front access and relax next to that water.
