It’s nearly summer. That means the kids are set free from their school schedules and parents are left up to their own devices to keep them busy in the hot and sticky summer months. Luckily, our ultra-kid-friendly city has a whole slew of things that everyone will enjoy all summer long.

At Books & Books, they make it easy to be entertained and learn something too – oh, and you, the adults, can have a glass of wine while you’re there, too. Check their website and click on the kids tab for information about weekly children’s book readings (Wednesday and Saturday), book recommendations from their staff and more information on how to be sure your kid keeps reading all summer long.

This summer, Coral Gables institution the Actors’ Playhouse is setting the stage with two kids’ favorites, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and Pippi Longstocking on their children’s stage. If you think you might have a star in the making, sign him or her up for summer camp focused on acting for both the stage and the screen or, if you have more advanced talent on your hands, they can participate in Pippi Longstocking through their Advanced Music Theatre Camp.

The Coral Gables Museum hosts Family Movie Nights featuring favorites like Inside Out and City Trekker Camps where kids will get to explore the City of Coral Gables’ cultural destinations and participate in programming at the museum. Expect the usual summer camp activities like arts and crafts and field trips, supplemented with special guests, city tours, visits to the museum’s exhibits and more.

If your kids need new clothes and accessories for summer travels, check out Nini & Loli and Macanoco & Co. The memories last a lifetime, but so do those vacation pictures!
