If you’re moving to Washington, you need to know one thing. The rainy rumors are TRUE! From late October to mid-June, Washington is a pretty wet place. If you have kids, they will get stir-crazy, and you WILL need a plan to get them out of the house to run off some of that energy!
Here are my Top FIVE Rainy Day Activities Around Naval Base Kitsap
A great choice for kids 10 and under! With four different moon bounces, a ball area, and 4 pretend play areas from grocery shopping to train stations, Play Kitsap is a great place for kids to run, play, and imagine!
