What do kids look forward to more than Christmas and staying up until midnight on New Year’s Eve? Easy: the week off of school that comes with the holiday season. While the little ones are excited for holiday fun and no school to get in the way, it can be tricky for the grown-ups in their lives to keep them entertained and engaged while still keeping up with the demands of a busy holiday season. Luckily, La Quinta has plenty of kid-friendly La Quinta events and destinations to make their 2015 winter break an exciting one.
Hot Spots for Kid-Friendly Fun in La Quinta
Rock n Roll Mini Golf: La Quinta is filled with golf-lovers, but younger children may simply not be up to traversing a full set of eighteen holes. Luckily, Rock n Roll Mini Golf is here to help you enjoy golfing as a family in a fun, exciting setting – with lights, music, and a video arcade to break up the holes.
The Living Desert: any La Quinta local knows that The Living Desert isn’t just a zoo – it’s a celebration of everything flora and fauna in the desert. With tours, daily events, and up-close animal encounters, it’s great fun for the whole family, and a surefire crowd-pleaser for any kids you have in tow. The WildLights festival during the holidays is a beautiful way to spend the long winter nights with your whole family.
The La Quinta Resort & Club: check in to the La Quinta Resort for a special treat for you and the little ones you’ve got in tow. The spa at the La Quinta Resort offers a variety of junior spa services alongside its complete adult menu, so everyone can have a relaxing afternoon of pampering. Don’t miss the rest of the resort while you’re here – the water park and playground isn’t to be missed.
Kid-Friendly Dining Destinations
La Quinta is a hotspot for fine dining – however, the upscale La Quinta dining experience doesn’t tend to impress most under-tens. Where should you head when a long day of excitement has left your kids’ stomachs rumbling?
Stuft Pizza Bar & Grill: this family-friendly spot is a born-and-bred La Quinta treasure. Stuft Pizza Bar & Grill’s incredible pizza selection is sure to satisfy even the pickiest of palettes, and its menu is wide enough to appeal to adult tastes with a craft beer and local wine selection to complement its steak, seafood, and Italian fare. Easy, affordable, and a surefire crowd pleaser – what more could you ask for when you’ve got ankle-biters underfoot to feed?
Egg Café: for an early-morning breakfast or brunch treat, pack up the kids and head over to the Egg Café. Another local favorite, this charming little diner cooks up breakfast treats fresh to order. The breakfast burritos are a must-try, and are a mess-free meal to grab while on the go.
Make the holiday season magical for the little ones in your life by checking out the winter break fun and excitement that La Quinta has to offer. Kids from one to a hundred can have a Christmas to remember this 2015 in the desert – you just have to know where to look.
