My wife always says that kids remember the beginning and the end of school vacations. If you bookend summer vacation with fun and exciting things, a lot of the middle can be relaxed and uneventful. The kids will still have something to write if their teacher assigns an essay about what they did during their summer vacation.

If you are trying to end summer with something fun for the kids, this could be the answer.

Seekonk Grand Prix is perfect for a summer activity. I brought my kids there on an incredibly hot day a few weeks ago. It was a scorcher, but the kids had a blast in the bumper boats. The water was splashing on them and cooling them off. They could also get some indoor relief with an indoor rock climbing wall and an indoor ropes obstacle course. I'm not a fan of arcades, but even I appreciated how ice cold the arcade was on that hot summer day.

Seekonk Grand Prix Family Fun Center has four go-kart tracks where kids as young as four years old are allowed to drive! The kids can take the bumper cars out for a spin or enjoy 18 holes of mini-golf. It's the perfect spot for the family because there are things to do for all ages.

This Friday morning at 9 a.m., we have your chance to buy $50 gift cards to Seekonk Grand Prix for only $25 at SeizeTheDeal.com. The gift cards can be used for any of the entertainment, rides, and games in the arcade. Gift cards are not accepted in the ice cream/snack bar. Supplies are limited.
