If you’re going to be in West Mississippi with your kids this summer, there are tons of family friendly events in Greenville you won’t want to miss. From paintball to bowling to Kermit the Frog, Greenville has something everyone can enjoy.
Muppets creator Jim Henson was born here in Greenville, and the city has built a permanent exhibit in Henson’s honor, which also doubles as the Washington County Welcome Center. This is a perfect stop for young kids.
Older children who like animals and the outdoors have lots of options—there’s the Winterville Indian Mounds, Oliver Alpaca Farm, the Delta Paintball Park, and more. If your family’s into cars, on the other hand, visit the Black Bayou Motor Speedway and Greenville Speedway Racing and catch a few races.
Of course, there are plenty of everyday activities to do in Greenville—Riverbelle Lanes offers bowling and other family activities, and the Nelco Movie Theater and Diamond Jim’s Arcade both have great options for families.
Whether you’re a resident of Washington County or you’re just passing through, summer in Greenville is a great time for families, so drop in on some of our city’s many exciting events!
