No doubt grownups need to spend time in a kid-free zone every once in a while, and date nights were invented for just that reason. But sometimes it’s fun to skip the sitter and have the littles crash the party. Click through for family date night ideas that are fun for the whole gang, from crashing at a museum for the night to catching dinner and a show. Adult conversation is a snooze fest anyway, right?

Family Jump Time: Pump it Up

You'll have so much fun at Pump It Up's Open Jump, you won't even realize you're exercising. Family jump times are offered at various times throughout the week, so check the schedule before heading out. Be sure to make a reservation ahead of time because this is a popular activity. Afterwards, swing by Uncle Julio's Julio's</a> for some of the best chips and salsa in the city.
