It’s no secret that I love Cleveland. Maybe an unspoken truth though is the real reason why I live, work and play in Cleveland, OH…and that reason is my family. While I love to travel and plan fun getaways from CLE, there is no place I’d rather be than spending quality time with the ones I love. This past weekend, I had the opportunity to take my oldest nephew, Simon, to Swings-N-Things for some one-on-one time. Swings-N-Things is a child’s dream. From go-karts to ice cream to mini-golf, there is fun for all ages (adults included)! Read all about our experience at Swings-N-Things!

Please note: I was invited by Swings-N-Things for a complimentary visit to their fun park. All opinions are 100% my own.
Reasons Why I Love Cleveland: Swings-N-Things
Swings-N-Things offers multiple different activities for all ages. I was a bit leery bringing my nephew Simon as he is only four years old. Would he find Swings-N-Things fun? Would there be enough fun and games for him to enjoy himself? I made sure to do my research and found out that while he couldn’t drive the bumper boats or go-karts by himself, he could be my co-pilot! He loved racing around the track with the big-kids and bumping into the colorful boats in the pool. Typically he despises getting water in his eyes, so I was super proud of him when he got squirted in the face by other bumper boat riders and he laughed!
Besides these two activities, he also squealed with excitement over the game room and especially had fun playing the below fishing game.
Older kids can enjoy the putt-putt course, paint-balling and the batting cages, while youngsters can run, climb and play in the kids corner. Check out all of the fun things you can do at Swings-N-Things here.
Swings-N-Things is a safe place for kids to hang out with friends and family, build confidence in themselves, and have fun competing in games. At first when we walked in, Simon was a bit overwhelmed with all of the loud noises. He grabbed my hand as we walked up to the ticket counter, but shortly after, he let go and started to tip toe over to the dinosaur claw game. He also insisted on steering our bumper boats and even wanted to order his ice cream cone on his own.
Speaking of ice cream, Swings-N-Things offers all your favorite junk food splurges! You don’t come to Swings-N-Things to eat healthy, so indulge your kids (and yourself) in buying hot dogs, pizza and soda pop. Don’t forget the ice cream!
Later this summer, Swings-N-Things will be implementing some new features to the park, such as a bar and a birthday balcony for parties. Win some major bonus points with the youngsters in your life by hosting their next birthday party here!
As we were walking out to the car, Simon was already asking about when we were coming back and declared that this was the “best. place. ever.” If you’re looking to impress your niece or nephew (or kid), treat them to a fun-filled day at Swings-N-Things.
If you live in Cleveland, have you visited Swings-N-Things yet this summer? If you have kids, nieces or nephews, where do you take them for a fun afternoon/evening?
