5 Family Activities You Can Do In El Paso Before School Starts
August 1 is officially the first day of school in El Paso according to EPISD. So NOW is the time to really take advantage of summer activities.
Go to a water park:
It gets hot here in El Paso (I know shocking right?). So if you need to cool off, one of the best ways is going to a water park. Of course we got Wet 'N' Wild or Biggs Water Park (although that's only for military families). But there's 4 more to choose from in El Paso:
Or an amusement park:
If you're not in the mood for a water park, there's always an amusement park.
- Western Playland is currently open Wednesday thru Sunday for the month of July. Once August hits, it's back to being open Saturday & Sunday.
- Urban Air is open 7 days a week at 801 S Mesa Hills.
- Bob-O's is open Thursday-Sunday at 3851 Constitution Dr.
- Adventure Zone is open 7 days a week at 251 E Redd Rd.
Go to an El Paso Library:
The El Paso Public Library is still holding their Summer Reading Club for parents & kids who want to spend time reading together. It's held at various libraries in town & there's 16 of them in El Paso. So if you need to find the library that's near to you, you can find them all right here.
Attend a free concert:
Sometimes the best things in life for free & every Thursday, Cool Canyon Nights have been bringing free shows to the McKelligon Canyon Amphitheater since May. Right now there's only a few shows left until the season wraps up July 28. You can see all the info for Cool Canyon Nights right here.
Go see a movie:
Who doesn't love going to the movies? Aside from the Flix Brewhouse, Cinemark & Alamo Drafthouse theaters in town, there's also a couple of El Paso summer movie series that kids can go to before school starts.
