One of the things I really struggle with now that my kids are getting older is the fact that it's just plain HARD to find stuff for us all to do together. They used to be happy and satisfied with whatever weird or wacky family activity that I had planned for us, but not so much anymore. If I pick a movie to go see, one of them doesn't like that movie. If I want to go for a hike, someone automatically has some kind of injury and they will have to stay home and play video games instead. If I pick a restaurant, mysteriously, one of my kids now hates that restaurant, even if it is a place we have frequented for years and years... Teens!!!
However, one family activity that I KNOW all of my kids will go to without complaint is a Harlem Globetrotters show!! It's so weird, of all the things that we can all do together with no complaints, this is definitely at the top of our list! We have been attending Harlem Globetrotters shows for years and years, and when we had the chance to visit one a few weeks ago, we were all thrilled!
It really is a fun activity for the whole family. There's the amazing show of athleticism, the comedy, the music, the lights, the audience interaction, and so much more. Even if sports are not really your thing (guilty, sue me!), there is MORE than enough to keep you entertained at a Harlem Globetrotters show, no matter how old you are!
Of course, one of the best parts of a Harlem Globetrotters show is after the show, where fans can come down onto the court and take pictures and get autographs from all your favorite Globetrotters stars! The Trotters are out on a WORLD Tour right now, so make sure to check and see when they will be in your city so you and your family can get in on the action!!
