Family friendly and fun. Something for all ages. Great imax movies. A little pricey with admission and food. Would like to see more geared towards teens.

The Clay Center is outstanding for concerts and plays!! Beautiful facility and easy parking! It also has handicap parking and access. I was able to take my mom there for a concert in her late 80s.

I suggest you keep an eye on the Clay Center's Facebook site. They had a free Summer Fun Day in early July. Last year, they offered free admission to military families between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
