Arizona Summer Boredom Busters

By Sarah Hunt, AZFB Communications Intern




Looking for something fun to do with your kids, friends, or family this summer? We’ve got you covered! Check out these great ideas below.


Visit the Aquarium or the Zoo

There are a couple aquariums in Arizona that are sure to mesmerize your little ones. Try Arizona Sea Life Aquarium or OdySea Aquarium.  The Phoenix Zoo is another fun trip to make; just make sure to bring lots of water and to wear hats and plenty of sunscreen! Bearizona is another fun zoo experience that you can bring your kids to where you can enjoy the cooler weather up in Williams.


Mesa Arts Center Classes

The Mesa Arts Center offers classes for most ages, you can browse and sign up for classes here. They offer classes in ceramics, painting, glass blowing, music, theater, photography, and more. I have taken a ceramics class there over the summer and really enjoyed it!
