An Afternoon in Beaverton with Kids
To be a kid again… In Beaverton, there are so many options for families with kids, or for adults who want to relive the fun of their childhoods. Spend an afternoon in Beaverton, where being a kid has its perks.
Kick off the afternoon with lunch at John’s Incredible Pizza Company. Kids of all ages will have a ball in the arcade, where bumper cars, rides, laser maze, video games and more beckon. After working up an appetite, enjoy delicious pizza, great soups, healthy salads, fantastic pasta, and indulgent desserts.
Celebrate the laser tag experience with a visit to Ome Calli, a family-owned ice cream, sorbet and ice pops shop. Kids will love the fun flavors, such as bubblegum, strawberry and cookies and cream, while adults will fall for the tastes of tequila, rum raison and salted caramel ice cream.
Wrap up the afternoon at Ceramic Café at Cedar Hills Crossing. Create a mosaic masterpiece with a variety of materials, such as Venetian glass tiles, stained glass, marbles, porcelain tesserae and more. Plus, you can take home your mosaic masterpieces the same day (no drying or wait time required). Open Daily, no appointment is necessary and walk-ins are welcome.
After morning meetings or events are over, and you have an afternoon free to explore, check out what Beaverton has in store for a few hours of discovery.

The unincorporated city of Aloha (pronounced a-low-uh), and its next-door neighbor Beaverton, make for great bedfellows for a Tualatin Valley weekend.
The last weekend of October is always a cauldron of activities, which is as good a reason as any to embark on a Halloween weekend of tricks and treats in Tualatin Valley.
The Tualatin Valley is so ga-ga for apple season that we hold multiple heirloom apple festivals in the fruit’s honor, two of which are happening over the same October weekend. Friday, October 13th may be unlucky, but the two days that follow it are sure to be sweet.
Explore Oregon’s bounty with harvest activities in the Tualatin Valley. Just a few minutes from Portland, be transported to a pastoral bliss of apple picking, sweet alpacas and wine grapes being picked from the vine.
