While there are MANY ways to learn and grow right at home, sometimes it’s nice to get out of the house with your little ones.  New places, new faces, and new things to see and experience can help you, and your little ones feel more connected and supported in our community.  The suggestions here include a mix of completely free places to go along with others that require payment.  Whether you’re getting out and enjoying Albany County’s beautiful summers or holing up and hiding from the cold and wind of winter, we hope you’ll find places to keep you busy all year round.



Accelerated Dragon & Phoenix Rising have made this amazing Fairy door scavenger hunt!!! Visit each local business and find the door hidden somewhere in their store. It’s fun, free, and you get to explore some downtown businesses you may not have stopped in before!


The Nest Indoor Play Space


The Nest is an Indoor Play Space located in Laramie, WY. Our mission is to provide a space for families to play, learn, and grow together. We hope to serve as a hub for the Laramie parents with young children, and to offer a place for connection and most importantly FUN!

Families needing assistance to visit The Nest, ask about donated daily passes. The amount available varies since it is based on donations, and is not guaranteed. If you and your family are able to, consider donating to help another family out and keep this amazing resource accessible to all Laramie Families!
