I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Medieval Times

What: Medieval Times

Where: Various Locations

Who: All Ages

Our view: Medieval Times has something for everyone. Boys will enjoy the jousting. Girls will enjoy the beautiful princesses especially those girls that are into Disney Princesses. Very young children might get scared or bored, however. If you cannot ever see yourself eating without benefit of utensils, this is not the place for you. Children especially young children will probably enjoy the opportunity to do so without being hassled about it for a change. The food is actually pretty good. The show is entertaining although after a while it gets old unless you are really in to that sort of thing. Be aware that the people at Medieval Times excel at merchandising and could probably give the Disney people a run for their money. In the holding area where you walk in and wait for your groups turn to go into the show, there is a ton of merchandise on sale. The merchandise will be sure to attract all the children in your party as they range from wooden shields and swords to princess hats and crowns among other items. Tickets for Medieval Times are quite pricey at  $59.95 for adults and $35.95 for kids 12 and under and that doesn't even include tax and processing fees which are required nor does it include gratuities to your food server. Check the web-site for special offers. Currently, there is a special offer for $20.00 off an adult ticket and $10.00 off a child's ticket which makes it a little more affordable. I am not sure how long that particular special has been running or how long it will continue to run. Children under 3 are free at all times, but will be required to sit on someone's lap. For more information or to make reservations go to medievaltimes.com.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for another Talking Topic.
