Chic-fil-A- Bluffton-


I know you know about this one... but, it's easy to forget how great it is to sit down and have a milkshake while watching your kid have a fantastic time in an enclosed, indoor play space.  Did I mention the milkshakes?

Target- Bluffton

This one is actually my favorite.  It's a win-win for everyone.  I grab a coffee from Startbucks on my way in.  I bribe the kiddo with pouches and puffs to sit in the cart while I meander around the Home Department, then let said kiddo run free in the toy aisle.  Grab a few essentials on the way out and I can't image a rainy day better spent.

The Kazoo Factory- Beaufort

Guided tour of the Kazoo Factory and museum 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM on weekdays. This tour also includes an opportunity to make your own kazoo at the end of the tour!  It was a good time, but I would say it's more of an 'assembly office' than a factory.
