Breakfast: Step out of the elements and into a cozy neighborhood bakery, The Bread Gal, for artisan breads, pastries, and more. (Kids will love the Chocolate Croissant and "big kids" can sink their teeth into a delicious Cardamom Bun or seasonal danish.)

Or, enjoy breakfast at Bringer Inn for large portions and an open kitchen — the kids will love watching their food get cooked! Head into Fuzzy’s for homemade iced cinnamon bread, available grilled as Cinnamon French Toast (and to-go as a delicious snack for the trip home).

Mid-Morning: Spend quality time together inside the Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum and prepare for hands-on exploring! Crawl into a larger-than-life mouth, build and play at the Tinker Track — this museum is 16,000 square feet of interactive galleries, from “Insides Out” to “Water, Water Everywhere," and an indoor place where infinite fun is found!

Lunch: Your kiddos won’t mind the weather once you step inside SVRC Marketplace, where everyone can pick their own place to eat! Try Big O Burgers and Barbecue for tasty burgers, tacos, and ribs — or Makin' Bacon for bacon-covered-everything! Don't leave without treats for later from Delicious Sweets Bakeshop, Krav'n Cookies, and more! Or, dine right in the comfort of your car at Old Town Drive-In, a 1950s-style car-hop restaurant with Coney dogs and cold draft root beer.

Mid-Afternoon: Leave behind weather woes while playing arcade games inside Press Play 989 — and laser tag! Or, bounce, fly, and defy gravity inside Airborne Adventure Park and experience a whole new level of indoor recreation on wall-to-wall trampolines!

Spend time shopping at nearby Birch Run Premium Outlets and find something for everyone at more than 100 designer and name-brand outlet stores! Take a break between shops at The Comet Classic Diner & Creamery for burgers and milkshakes or Tony's I-75 Restaurant for classic comfort foods and huge portions, like their famous one-pound BLT!

Dinner: Back in Saginaw, enjoy family-friendly G’s Pizzeria for all kinds of delicious pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, and burgers, or choose the specialty deep dish pizza at UNO Chicago Grill.

Evening: Step into Stardust to bowl and welcome your family into more than 60 arcade games, four escape rooms, two-story laser tag, and indoor bumper cars — and The Taproom on-site, parents!

Check listings to see if your trip’s timed just right to catch a family-friendly performance at The Dow Event Center or The Temple Theatre — and consider it a day well-spent together indoors in Saginaw!
