1. Acrosmith Gymnastics

If your toddler has lots of energy, Acrosmith is the perfect way to spend an hour of your time! Miss Jackie developed Tot Time when she saw the need for her own toddler and his friends to get their energy out on those days when they’d rather be inside. Your toddler will love running, jumping, climbing, and swinging all around the gym! There is no commitment to join the gym, just pick a class to try for only $5 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 10 am or 11:15 am, or Fridays only at 10 am.

2. Paris Mountain State Park

Located at 2401 State Park Road, you and your toddler can spend the entire day here and find nature at it’s finest!  Choose to spend your time in the shade or in the sunshine, eating lunch at picnic tables or under picnic shelters, on trails or at the playground, bird watching or geo caching.  Spend the day? You may want to spend a week!

$5 adults; $3.25 SC seniors (age 65 & older); $3/ child age 6-15; Free for children 5 and younger.

 3. Tell Me a Story Theatre

Ms. Traysie is a joy to watch as she brings to life various characters from children’s picture books.  Although this is advertised to a “Pre-K” audience, my active toddler always loves going!  I think it’s a great opportunity for my toddler to be in comfortable and forgiving environment where she can observe older children sitting, listening, and participating.  Every time we’ve been, the crowd of children have been so excited, and many younger siblings are in tow. Stories are told at 9:30 am and 11:00 am on scheduled Tuesdays. At $1 per person, it is hard to beat this price!

This is a good list. FYI Paris Mountain goes up to $5 per adult in the summer. Have you considered a list of activities/places to visit geared particularly to working parents? Acrosmith and Tell Me a Story sound so great, but it’s not something we can do because their programs are in the morning. Even the children’s museum closes at 5. And sometimes we just want to get out of the house as a family in the evenings, especially with the longer summer days. We can go to Paris Mountain (which we actually do often) and I guess we could… Read more »
