The Play Destination is a celebration of childhood, and not just because of its bounce houses. Owners Nicole Hirsty Saine and Keri Stein designed their play center to encourage kids to engage in unstructured play. Games, toys, and activities—all chosen to build physical and mental skills—allow youngsters to make their own decisions and think creatively as they dream up fantastic new worlds and imaginary friends with even fuzzier tentacles. But adults aren't forgotten about—complimentary coffee, WiFi, magazines, and ample seating keep parents occupied.
Structured events do occasionally take place amidst the free play. The Play Destination hosts birthday parties and activities such as art and story time. With kids busy, parents can participate in adult classes, such as yoga or sessions that educate first-time mothers.
