Escape the Heat This Summer in Phoenix: Indoor Edition

Keeping your kids active during the summer in Phoenix can be challenging. You want them to play outside, but you don’t want them to suffer the effects of extreme heat.

Thankfully, the Phoenix metro area has no shortage of indoor options for those of us who don’t have a pool, or who simply want to escape into some air conditioning. Here are just some ideas:

Indoor Playgrounds

Located in shopping centers and malls, these provide an environment for kids to socialize and blow off steam. They generally charge admission, but you can often get a frequent visitor pass.

Public Libraries

Our public library systems offer more than just story time (though story time keeps the mind active, which is also important!). From science presentations to martial arts and yoga classes, check your local library for a list of free programs.

Indoor Mini-Golf

With several locations around the valley, mini golf gets your kids on their feet to practice putting.

Trampoline Parks

For vigorous exercise that’s fun for all ages, a trampoline park is the place to go. Talk to your kids about safety and check the facility to prevent injuries from falling.

Indoor Rock Walls and Rope Courses

Climbing builds strength and teaches kids to overcome challenges. Find a facility with seasoned instructors and up-to-date safety equipment.

Phoenix Museums

Downtown areas in and around Phoenix feature a variety of museums to explore. Walking around a museum can clock a lot of steps, and children’s museums allow kids to play.
