10 Indoor Playgrounds Your Kids Will Go Bonkers For
We all know the 'mitten state' is the BEST because of its natural features like the Great Lakes and four beautiful seasons! But, our unpredictable weather can make planning family outings and play dates difficult...
So, we put together this list of our favorite indoor playgrounds in Michigan so you and your little ones can have BRICK-loads of fun when mother nature isn't cooperating!

At Michigan's ultimate indoor LEGO playground, you'll see dozens of Detroit-area landmarks built entirely out of LEGO bricks, save the day on two interactive LEGO-themed rides, then get hands-on in the build and play areas!
But, the fun doesn't stop there... You'll get mixed up in the action inside the 4D LEGO Cinema, depart on a deep-sea adventure in Underwater Quest and learn some top tips from an expert builder in the Creative Workshop, too.
