So you've decided to check out the Alabama Gulf Coast on your next vacation since it's an ideal vacation spot for Hendricks County families. Great! You've made an excellent choice!
While you're there, you have to eat, right? And the kids aren't going to entertain themselves (at least mine won't). So where's a good spot for families to get a delicious bite to eat and for the kids to have fun while you're in the Gulf Shores, Alabama, area?
I'm so glad you asked.
Among my list of family-friendly can't-miss places to visit while you're at the Alabama Gulf Coast is LuLu's at Homeport Marina in Gulf Shores.
Villagers, if you are looking for a place to spend a family vacation at any point throughout the year, I have a recommendation for you: visit the Alabama Gulf Coast.
We just returned from a wonderful Spring Break vacation in Orange Beach, Alabama -- which sits on the Alabama-Florida border and adjoins Gulf Shores, Alabama -- and I have come to the conclusion that the Alabama Gulf Coast is an ideal vacation spot for Hendricks County families.
Here are a few reasons why.
Easter is right around the corner (Sunday, April 5), and if you're looking for Easter egg hunts for the kids, we've done the research for you.
Here are the Easter egg hunts in Hendricks County that we're aware of in 2015 (and if you know of any hunts that aren't listed here, please contact us so that we can add them!):
Welcoming and entertaining more than 4,000 visitors over two days last year, the first-ever Mayberry in the Midwest proved to be a rousing success. Expecting more visitors in its second year, organizers want to do even more as they have added another day, more ticketed events and additional free activities to the zany fun that made last year’s festival so popular.
The quiet Hendricks County seat of Danville will transform again into the iconic 1960s fictional community that was home to Andy, Opie, Aunt Bee and Barney for the Mayberry in the Midwest festival May 15-17. Former cast members, amazing tribute artists and even Don Knotts’ real-life daughter, Karen Knotts, will take visitors on a journey inside their televisions to experience life in Mayberry.

While researching a blog post for Visit Hendricks County recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with the superintendent of Hendricks County Parks & Recreation, William Roche.
During our conversation, he enlightened me about some programs that Hendricks County Parks & Rec offers for schools and for Scouts.
While I was aware that they offer programs for Scouts, William explained that they have revamped their Scouting program.
I was completely clueless as to the programs offered to Hendricks County schools.
It all seemed like information that Villagers might like to know about, so pull up a chair.

For the first time, on Friday 1/9/15, we loaded up my son’s BMX bike in the backseat and rolled out to find the Awakening Youth Skatepark at The Blended Church, 2215 Country Club Rd. Just barely across the Marion County line, many Hendricks County BMX and skateboard riders began streaming in to take advantage of the ramps set up once a month by youth pastor Jeremy Plumley.
His enthusiasm for the youth who ride BMX and skateboarders has led him to work to get the gym/recreation area of his church transformed into a skatepark to provide free riding from 6pm-12 on the 2nd Friday of every month. With a stage for a band, ping-pong table, foosball tables and bleachers for spectators, the gymnasium area transforms into the skatepark that gives otherwise cooped up teens and young adults a place to ride while temps outside make it impossible.
