Planning a birthday shindig is easy when the sun is shining, the air is warm, and kids and parents alike seem happy just hangin’ outdoors. But if a bouncy house and burgers on the barbie have you saying, “been there, done that,” then oh, do we have a list for you. These awesome outdoor birthday spots will put the thrill back into your kid’s birthday celebration, and not just the younger guests. Some of these venues promise to put a capital F in Fun for parents too!

Silver Plaza Spray Ground

Water splashing, kids laughing, little feet padding tiny puddles on the ground—these are the sounds of a spray ground in summertime and it sounds just like a party. The DMV offers plenty of spraygrounds that could serve as the backdrop to kiddo’s shindig. For a celebratory feel, try the colorful fountain in Silver Plaza (delightfully located near plenty of snack and lunch options for after the kids are wet and worn out).
