Great blog idea! I remember when my kids were young (they're all in 30s and 40s now, bad weather was always one of the issues on vacation, and we had to scramble for things to do that would keep them occupied and happy. Some of your ideas here look great for adults and kids!

That bookstore really looks appealing to me....always one of my favorite destinations on a rainy day. That, and a library. I love visiting libraries in cities when I visit. The quality of a town's libraries tells me a lot of that city's priorities.
