No need to Tinder on Sundays! LeBauer Park hosts Yappy Hour every Sunday from to 3 to 5pm: beer, wine, four-legged friends and downtown singles. LeBauer Park includes a designated dog park area in LeBauer where you can bring your pooch to play or sneak in to pet strangers’ dogs.

7. Affordable Disney World:

Your kids will never want to depart this wonderland! The kids’ area includes slides, rock-climbing, and an EPIC spin-around. Kids can also play in an interactive water feature that is more high-tech than your Apple Watch. So let your kids enjoy while you sit back, let the kiddos play and even splurge on some cold canned wine in this no-judgement zone 😁

Please drink responsibly **Jay Z voice**
