This iconic toy store on the square in Georgetown is such a fun place to explore! I really found myself looking through the eyes of a child while looking around for gifts for family members.
There are a lot of familiar toys, including iconic toys I played with as a child. And of course, some really cool new things.
Speaking of cool, none of the toys in this store need batteries! This is a store with kid powered toys only!
Remember the fun we had with Lincoln logs, and pick up sticks? And how legos are still a favorite (for kids and kids at heart!)? This toy store embraces toys that require imagination and don’t rely on flash. It’s so much fun to see kids getting excited over the charming toys they’ll likely remember fondly as adults.
And, of course, they offer a wonderful selection of books!
And if fun toys aren’t enough, then what about ice cream? Because what could make an awesome toy store MORE awesome? An ice cream parlor inside! They have a great variety of flavors, too!
If you need more convincing to check it out…giant lego pirate should just about do it.
It may be hot outside, but is there anything cooler than exploring a cave?!
Recently I went to Inner Space Cavern to check out The Adventure Tour, and what was so special about a dark hole in the ground. And honestly, I was floored! I mean floor to ceiling, there is no shortage of incredible things to see!
The history of this cavern alone is spectacular for even the seasoned spelunker. And the tour guides are anything but dry…unlike these caves. Dad jokes, and bad jokes abound, but still funny…and mixed in with some extremely informative facts and acts. No, really. At one point you get to experience complete darkness. It’s pretty incredible.
And it’s quite safe. Specialists, we were told, inspect the integrity of the “rooms” on frequent basis, there are safety rails and traction rugs on the trickier paths. But be sure it is a safe tour for all ages and skills. There were several children in our group who handled the up and downhill spots even easier than us grown ups.
What….they are cave drawings! Just not quite the same age as the rest of the cave.
All in all a really fun time! So if you are looking for a rock solid way to round out the summer and keep your cool, head up 35 (or down, depending on where you are) to get yourself a ticket and explore a real underground cave!
And for the especially brave, try the Hidden Passages tour. This tour explores a newly opened area and is only lit by flashlight. I think I’ll wait a while for this one. I saw “The Descent”. I know how that ends.
