Completed everything on the “10 Kid-Friendly Things To This Spring Break” Guide? Check out part two below. This list is full of family-friendly Memphis things to do and spring break ideas for Memphis.

Play some games!

Memphis has several awesome arcade and games places. I mentioned Golf & Games in the Part 1 of this list under “go carts” but they have plenty of games (Including something new called ___ and laser tag). Spend an evening at Incredible Pizza (pizza buffet, arcade, mini bowling, indoor roller coaster, and more). Visit Main Event Entertainment during family friendly hours (bowling, arcade, laser tag, and more). Or check out the newly opened Dave & Buster’s (arcade games, billiards, Dance Dance Revolution, Bowling).

Get jumping at SkyZone indoor trampoline park.

This is one that is sure to burn up the kids’ energy!

Get on a bike!

You can take the kids to ride at Shelby Farms (you can rent bikes there), or the Greenline, of course. Overton Park and Tom Lee Park are very bike-friendly and fun, too.

Go Bowling

Yes, several of the places I mentioned above have some form of bowling, but what about our classic bowling alleys? T

1. Go on a photo tour. (free)


You can find all the I Love Memphis murals around town and take photos, or you can check out our lists of great photo-op locations here and here.

2. Ride The Carousel


If you haven’t taken the kids to the Children’s Museum lately, it’s a great time to go check out the brand-new, refurbished and totally gorgeous Grand Carousel. Read more here.

3. Take The Elevator at the Bass Pro Pyramid ($10 adults, 

I know there are at least a few of you who haven’t yet gone up in the country’s tallest freestanding elevator to see one of the best views of the city. Now’s your chance. With plenty to see inside the enormous Bass Pro (really just take a look) you can easily spend a half a day on this.

4. Find a Memphis Food Truck
Picking out your favorite truck and trying something new is half the fun in this food-based idea. Check out this post for a full guide to finding food trucks, but I think your best bets this week are a) checking out this Twitter list to see posted schedules, or b) heading up to Court Square on Thursday during lunch for the weekly Food Truck Thursday rodeo.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
