Memorial Day weekend is always choke-full of things to do. But they're not all places or events you want to – or should – take the kids to. Children can be tough to please, but here are 5 things kids and parents can both enjoy doing this weekend.

  • Get Wet. And Wild

    Wet N' Wild Waterworld

    Burgers and 'dawgs on the grill, and water rides when they want to play. What kid wouldn't enjoy that kind of a day? [More]

  • Splash Around

    City of El Paso Splash Parks

    If getting wet is what the kids are looking to do but on a much smaller level, then head out to one of the city neighborhood splash pads. You’ll find one in just about every part of town, all free to use. [More]

  • Get Wild

    El Paso Zoo

    If you’re looking to get wild, but not necessarily wet, pay the zoo a visit. It’s bigger and better than ever with relatively new attractions like the Wings of the World Bird Show and the all-new Reptile House. Plus the kids will love feeding the giraffes. [More Info]

  • Petting Zoo and Paddle Boats

    Licon Dairy

    Licon Dairy is one of El Paso's Hidden Gems. The kids can pet and feed all kinds of animals, like llamas, buffalo, and deer. There's a pond for paddle boating and fishing. And the dairy store is home to some of the best Asadero cheese our area has to offer. [More]
