Things to Do with Kids in Pleasant Prairie
Pleasant Prairie is proud to be a family friendly destination. Here are some fantastic local things to do with kids.
Bristol Renaissance Faire
Lace up those bodices or boots and step into a different time at the Bristol Renaissance Faire. This summer favorite event is one of many great things to do with kids while visiting the Pleasant Prairie area. You and your family are sure to love all the food, games, rides and shopping the Faire has to offer. Be sure to take a lot of photos as you “party like it’s 1599.”
A family adventure in Ingram Park is a great thing to do with kids — the two-legged ones AND the four-legged ones. Dogs can cool off in the huge, dog-bone shaped lake during the summertime. In the snowy winter months, the whole family can enjoy a thrilling zip down the awesome sledding hill.
Jelly Belly Factory Tour
Don’t leave Pleasant Prairie without a visit (or two) to the Jelly Belly Wisconsin Visitors Center. Kids and grown-up candy fans will be treated to a sweet and informative journey aboard the Jelly Belly Express. This delicious — and FREE — tour will take you back in time through the history of candy making with plenty of jelly bean tastings, exciting exhibits and fun photo ops along the way! You may even catch the annual Jelly Belly Carnival which happens around late June/early July.
Lake Andrea Beach
If your family loves waterside fun in the sun, be sure to make time to check out Lake Andrea Beach. Pack some sand toys and relax with a good book while your little ones build a sandcastle. If you want to get out on the water, Froggy’s Landing can get you cruising with recreational watercraft rentals by the hour. Their five and 10-pack rental punch cards are perfect for frequent visitors! For some more active fun, hit up the excellent paved bike path around the lake.
The playtime possibilities are endless at KidWise Playspace, an indoor children's active play area that is geared towards kids six months to 10 years old. Known for their Ninja Room, multiple playsets featuring slides, and an interactive floor projector, kids will leave here asking when they will be coming back! Snack breaks are made easy with access to a microwave, children-sized cups and utensils, with healthy food options available for purchase. Oh, and did we mention free, unlimited coffee for the adults?
Let your kiddos get in touch with their artsy sides while you unwind with some “grown-up juice.” Pinot’s Palette offers their “Little Brushes” class which features a project designed specifically for kids. Check their calendar for specific dates or if you have something to celebrate and would like the place to yourselves, ask about booking a kids’ party.
Prairie Springs Park
Take the kids to exercise off some extra energy in Prairie Springs Park where there is plenty of space to run around. When they need a break from playing on one of two tot lot playgrounds, have a family picnic at one of the pavilions. If you’re up for it, take a stroll on the wooded trails and enjoy the natural spaces Prairie Springs Park has to offer.
Six Flags Great America
Six Flags Great America is the Midwest’s destination for thrilling rides, exhilarating arcade games, and just all-around family fun. At less than a 20-minute drive from Pleasant Prairie, Six Flags Great America is a perfect excursion if you’re looking for things to do with kids.
