Best Place to Take Kids

The park

Ordinarily, we award this superlative to one of the big attractions down by the harbor, and they remain the big kiddie draws, to be sure. But there's something to be said for simplifying both your kids' lives and your own and leaving the high-concept edutainment behind for a walk in the woods, a romp on the playground, and the kind of random encounters with other nature-seekers that happen when you leave your car and your media bubble behind. The big city parks (Druid Hill, Patterson) will do fine, but we favor parks with flowing water, because a creek = hours of kid entertainment, and for that we often head out to close-in county spots such as Double Rock Park (8211 Texas Ave., Parkville; shoes and a squirt or two of hand sanitizer afterward are musts). Best of all, admission and parking are always free.
