After visiting many of the area's kid-friendly play spaces with her own two daughters, Tara Carson decided to take a swing at it herself. Wanting to create a fun and affordable place for parents to hang out with their kids, Tara opened Jellybean Town, USA, a place that stokes kids' imaginations. Parents and tots flock to the multicolored space for art classes—both for kids and adults—where they might paint pictures, design a mosaic, or make a bust of their favorite teacher with duct tape. Open art and playtime sessions give visitors access to art stations and opportunities for imaginative pretend play, such as Jellybean Town's costume shop, play market, and library.
