Harkins Gateway Pavilions 18

Who doesn’t love the smell of fresh popcorn and a cold, air-conditioned movie theatre?! The Harkins Gateway Pavilions 18 theater is one of our favorite movie theaters in the valley for families. This movie multiplex has 18 theaters, film festivals and a kids’ play center! This movie theater has a high 4.3-star rating on Google. Local Guide, Brandon, says: 


“There are many theaters to choose from that all provide roughly the same experience. But this one has a childcare center. My wife and I can drop our three-year-old off and go have some time alone. The staff is always friendly and my son looks forward to going there to watch movies, play games, craft, and eat popcorn. Highly recommended!”

Brunswick Tri-City Bowl

Locals love the Brunswick Tri-City Bowl. This 40-lane bowling facility provides open and league bowling, along with private event and party hosting (perfect for birthday parties). Kids not into bowling? No worries! This facility also has an awesome arcade to keep them happy. Joanna from Avondale shares her family’s experience at Brunswick Tri-City Bowl on Google Reviews:


“My husband, three kiddos, and I tried our hand at bowling for the first time ever here. We had an amazing time! Fell in love with the game. It wasn't too busy or crowded so that was a huge plus. Would recommend for family night!”

Phoenix International Raceway

The Phoenix International Raceway is home to NASCAR races, featuring racing events that the whole family will love. November is going to be a great month to catch some of this action. Phoenix International Raceway will be hosting the Lucas Oil 150, Ticket Galaxy 200 and Can-Am 500. Did you know that you can also camp at the raceway? Visitors love to camp during their visit. Local guide, Tami, says on Google:


“Love this raceway. You can bring your own food in but also have the option of buying food if needed. Everyone is friendly. Camping is awesome. Have been coming here for years and have made some great friendships.”
