Your March Guide to Fun on a Budget

March is full of fun opportunities!

Flicks Family Films is back, as well as the Easter Bunny! This March you can travel all over West Michigan to treat your kiddos to great story times, as story times are being held almost every day of the week somewhere.

Make sure, too, that you take advantage of some of these (a bit!) warmer weather days and head out to a playground or take a hike. March is full of fun and free possibilities, where will it take you?

And if the ever unpredictable Michigan weather has kept you cooped up indoors too long and you need a change of scenery, don’t forget about the Grand Rapids Kids Indoor Play Guide.
