For kids (and kids at heart), you’ll find a new adventure around every corner in South End.
Kid-friendly adventures await in South End. Mixed in among the breweries, restaurants, and art galleries (although many of those are kid-friendly, too), South End is full of fun activities for the whole family. So grab the kiddos and start working your way through South End’s list of must-do experiences for families. Every visit will be a new adventure full of magic and memory-making fun.
1. Walk, bike, skate, or ride your way down the Rail Trail. Keep your eyes peeled for all of the colorful public art pieces along the way!
2. Watch as the trains zoom by from the bright yellow swings at Edna’s Porch (this is a great opportunity to talk about street/train track crossing safety, too).
27. Get your first pair of skates (and safety gear) from the skating experts at Derby City Skates.
28. Show your parents you're ready for your first dog by proving you can take care of a plant. Find an easy-to-care for plant at The Cactus Club. Then once you’ve gotten your furry friend, head to Canine Cafe and PetWants Charlotte to stock up on food, snacks, and toys.
