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 - Family Fun at Citi Field

What: Cit Field

Where:12301 Roosevelt Avenue
             Corona, New York

Who: All Ages

Our view: Today we are going to focus on what else there is to do at Citi Field besides watch a baseball game. For the little ones, there are free games and attractions at the Mets Fan Fest. Here there is a full scale model of the stadium which kids can run around and play on. Kids will love the team mascots Mr. and Mrs. Met. While Mr. Met can be found throughout the stadium, he always appears at Fan Fest at specific times. If you want be sure to catch him, check out the schedule of his appearances at Fan Fest. On Sundays, Mr. Met is accompanied by Mrs. Met. Also, on Sundays after the game, children have the opportunity to run around the bases on the actual field which the team plays on. For older kids, there are video games.There is a dunk tank for testing your throwing arm, as well as a batting cage to test your skill at hitting a ball. For anyone old enough to appreciate it, there is a Mets Hall of Fame and Museum featuring Mets Memorabilia and the Mets Hall of Fame. For adults, there are several clubs and restaurants located throughout the stadium. For some of them you need special tickets and/or reservations, for some you do not. There are party suites which must, of course, be reserved in advance.  So as you can see, there is a lot to do at a game at Citi Field besides watch baseball.

And that's our view. For more information about family fun at Citi Field see tomorrow's Talking Topics post.
