Kids & Family Fun in Crawford County

A blast for the whole family.

Crawford County prides itself on providing experiences that are a blast for the whole family. Whether you’re a thrill seeker, an animal lover, or a movie buff, we have activities that will delight and amuse you!

Conneaut Lake Park has it all, from mini golf to KiddieLand, and even Spash city for the water lovers. You can camp online visit for the day, but don’t leave without riding America’s 5th ranked wooden roller coaster, the historic Blue Streak. This coaster was one of the first rides to be named an ACE Coaster Classic.

If you’re into more low-key entertainment, catch the latest cinematic release at The Movies at Meadville. For some live theater, scope out the performance schedule at either Academy Theatre or Meadville Community Theatre. After you catch a show, unwind by knocking down some pins and munching on wings or pizza! Plaza Lanes is always running specials that combine their handmade pizzas and unlimited bowling for guaranteed fun and some friendly competition.

If you’re around in the summer, don’t miss one of our several community fairs, or the Thurston Classic Hot Air Balloon Event.
