In the holiday fashion, I am sure you all are running everywhere to take care of your errands and chores. Well I’ve been stockpiling some of my favorite places in the area for you because they make errand running easier when you have tot in tow. These places aren’t kid-related businesses, but offer a place for children to play while parents can take care of business. I personally appreciate the thoughtfulness of these businesses.
Here is the list I have thus far. Anything to contribute to this list? Please send them along.
