If you listen really closely, you can hear the collective sigh that marks the end of December. Parents all around town are celebrating the end of another exciting holiday season. Things will be a little more low-key in the next couple of months as families rebuild savings accounts and recover from the hustle and bustle of the last three months. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do. Kids still need to play, and we know how much our readers love getting out and about with your families.

NinjaZone is the premier place for kids to experience an obstacle course based gymnastics and martial arts program.  Kids will learn about corporation, hard work and focus while working out their whole body during each NinjaZone session.
