For our second post in this three-part series on Children’s Activities in NC, we take you out of the water from the last post and bring you to some fun-filled areas that can also be a great learning experience. Just as you opted to move your family to the new homes in Knightdale at Knightdale Station, with education being a major factor, these fun trips are likewise, educational.
Just as we had foretold in our initial post, there are so many Children’s Activities in NC that would fall into this category that we could spend days informing you of them. Thus, we have decided to pick out a few from around North Carolina that are true “can’t miss” Children’s Activities in NC
Spreading Their Wings with Children’s Activities in NC
To begin with our education, but fun Children’s Activities in NC we head up in the sky. There is quite an amazing history to be told as to the origins of flying in North Carolina. That being said, flying is something that all kids are amazed by and makes for young imaginations to run wild. So, without further hesitation, let’s get ready to take off.
The Wright Brothers National Memorial, Kill Devil Hills
What child does not have a fascination with flying? So why not begin our Children’s Activities in NC listings for this post with where it all began? On their trip to the Wright Brothers Memorial, your children will learn about the first-ever successful powered flights. In addition, they can fly kites and even take a short flight on these historic grounds.
The 82nd Airborne Division War Memorial Museum, Fort Bragg
Again, flying is something that all children wonder about. Now add in the aspect of being right up close and personal with actual fighter planes? This may not be such a hard sell for Children’s Activities in NC after all. This is another free admission stop, too, and it is the only museum in the entire country to feature the planes’ histories from World War 1 all the way to the present and the 82nd Airborn Division.
Science is Fun at Children’s Activities in NC
If there is one area that is associated with learning that the kids do get excited for, science is the one. Between experiments, electricity, and interesting forms of life, what is there not for a child to love. Well, really nothing, so now let’s look at a few Children’s Activities in NC that are centered around science.
North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Raleigh
Ok, kids love dinosaurs. It’s undeniable. Forget that this amazing science museum, which is the largest of its kind in the entire Southeast has free admission. We are talking about Children’s Activities in NC and dinosaurs…enough said. But we won’t leave it at that. Here your kids can unlock some of the universes’ great mysteries. From the second they get out of the car and see the enormous three-story world globe, they will forget they are learning anything, and the fun factor takes over. The centerpiece of this stop is the 80,000 square-foot wing of the museum, the Nature Research Center. By the time many of the kids leave, they are sure that their career path will be in science.
Museum of Life and Science, Durham
We know, the word “museum” is not always making for the easiest “sell” when packing the kids up for a fun day. But just like the previous entry to our Children’s Activities in NC, once they get there, they won’t care what you call it! Plus, science is oftentimes fun, and many kids agree. At this site, they can run free among the 80 acres that include an outdoor playground, animal exhibits, and interactive activity stations where they conduct experiments and build things.
Two Children’s Activities in NC Honoring Heroes of Different Types
All kids have heroes. What type of hero they have is honestly up to their imagination to some extent? However, they can also look at the accomplishments and kindness of many adults and look to them as somewhat of a hero. When the two types of hero we are introducing though are sports and war heroes aboard an enormous ship, we think we will grab their attention.
The ACC Hall of Champions, Greensboro
A no-brainer. Who doesn’t grow up in North Carolina without seemingly having someone influencing their sports loyalty. Someone is gonna try and get them to route for Duke, NC State, or UNC-Chapel Hill? Whether football or especially basketball, this may be a surprise hit with the kids among our Children’s Activities in NC. All the great games, championships, moments, and players. All the memories from years gone by until today are on display or remembered in some fashion at the Hall of Champions.
Battleship North Carolina, Wilmington
Hey kids, want to go to the Battleship? This question I’d think from any child warrants a fast and easy yes. When visiting this massive vessel the kids get to climb right aboard! As if that’s not enough, they can “steer the ship” and “fire” the actual guns. We can guarantee you as the parent they won’t actually be steering or shooting anything, other than maybe after you leave, they might want you to steer the way back for another educational stop in our Children’s Activities in North Carolina.
Animals, Trains, and Rides are All That’s Left for our Children’s Activities in NC
This brings us to the conclusion of our second blog posts on Children’s Activities in NC. We will have one more post dedicated to the fine Children’s Activities in NC. This will focus on several items that kids love as well.To find out more about all the great things going on at the Knightdale Station new home neighborhood, visit knightdalestation.com.
