There is a multitude of interesting and exciting places to go and things to do on our door step. Some local attractions are free, a day at the park for example, take a pic-nic and enjoy a day in the fresh air. Other attractions do require payment, and some of them are very exciting and great fun. Much depends on the family budget and the availability of time and supervision. For families with older children there are vigorous activates, many sports teams and sports facilities around the City where energy can be burned off.
There is much to do, and places to go, get out and about and enjoy.
