Opulent mansions, unique boutiques, elegant restaurants, sprawling vineyards, rooftop bars, and some of the most historic attractions in the country are all nice, but every now and then we like to let our inner kid out to play. From casual eateries with some of the best grub around, to hands-on experiences like a touch tank aquarium set right on the beach or a scavenger hunt inside the International Tennis Hall of Fame, your kids are going to have to try really hard to be bored here.
