Sunday Funday, Monday Funday, Friday Funday. In my opinion, any day of the week can be dubbed a Funday. Maybe not Wednesday and Thursday... they do not rhyme as well. There are so many fun activities to check out around Southern California. I haven't even begun to touch a small portion of them. I'm definitely trying! Last week, a friend and I decided to check out a local attraction, Tom's Farm. As an Iowa girl, when I hear the word farm my mind pictures, well, a farm. In SoCal, when you hear the word farm it likely means a place selling fruits and vegetables. And possible an inoperable tractor staged out front.
If you haven't noticed, Tom's Farm is a shopping attraction. There is plenty of cute stuff and unique edibles. As two kidless moms, we enjoyed browsing around the shops and chatting. I would say coffee cups in hand but we had to trash those. No drinks allowed in the stores. As much as I'd love to bring my kids to a farm, this would not be the one of choosing. Sure there are fun things for the kids to do but it's a really tight area to move around in.
Tom's Farm hosts special events year round. I would suggest visiting during those times. Check out the website for a calendar of events.
The trip wasn't a total bust. I found Sioux City Root Beer in the cooler. That is about as authentic to the Midwest as this farm got.
