An Afternoon in Beaverton with Kids



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.
