Description: Lemos Farm is one of those places that you can take children of many ages too that offers something for everyone on their play list. They have goat and chicken feeding and petting areas. The goats are very friendly and very hungry (they will nibble your clothes), but they are very sweet and will easily let you pet them. There are two different areas for pony rides, for all your little equestrian needs. They have two big bounce houses for kids to run freely between and bounce out all of their energy. The train rides and hay rides are both nice for a little sitting down break. They have a full snack bar that serves things from hot dogs to sweet treats. For older kids they provide laser tag sessions. You can also have birthday parties for young ones in one of their more secluded party areas. With lots of places for silly photo opts and a very friendly farm cat (the cat is really cuddly and friendly, it cuddled up on our jacket and took a nap)- this place has something fun for every child!
Highlights: My daughter can bounce in any bouncy tent for hours, so the fact that there are two on site, makes for more options and one or the other has never been too full to bounce in since both are offered. It is nice to sit together on the train ride for a few minutes and settle down after a lot of running around. I'm partial to goats and there are always a few baby goats that are fun to snuggle up to.
Tips: Check Groupon for discounts, they are almost always listed and get you and your family in for a very reasonable rate!
