Have you ever been in a situation where the kids want to do something only children enjoy, and you, as an adult, would rather do something only grown-ups like, but at the end of the day, one group ends up sacrificing for the other? More often than not, we know it?s the children who get what they want and sometimes, that can be rather annoying. So why don?t you try some fun places where you and the kids can actually go without one group feeling obligated to go? Here are a few ideas for family outings in Lagos:

Cinema Halls

These have become the ?it place? when it comes to family hangouts especially because many of them are located in shopping malls which increase the range of activities to take on. Most shopping malls in Lagos usually have nice attractions for children, from indoor train rides to children's play areas and lots of restaurants to eat, drink, relax and now, with virtual reality, it?s an entirely new ballgame. This is a must do for every member of the family, there are several themes to choose from, however, the ?horror? is what many opt for. You would also find cinemas showing movies for children in most malls in Lagos. Some popular cinemas include : Ozone Cinemas: is located at?E center, Commercial Ave, Sabo-Yaba, Nigeria Genesis Deluxe?Cinema - Lagos: Is located in The Palms Shopping Mall, Lekki, Lagos.

People who love the sight of the sea and its?environment usually?find it entertaining to visit the beach on holidays. If you're a water lover, then Lagos has got your back because they are lots of interesting beaches to visit; Elegushi beach, Oniru beach, Lekki beach, Kuramo beach, Eleko beach, Tarkwa Bay, La Campagne Tropicana beach resort and the list goes on. The gate fees are usually not more than N2000 with a few exceptions to the exclusive ones. Please take extra caution when you take your kids to beaches and be sure not to allow them to go too close to the water without adult supervision. In fact, everyone needs to be careful at the beach. Do this and you?ll have a great time! ?Make sure you?re preparing to get the kids home before it gets dark. ilashe beach lagos Family outings in Lagos Also, remember to carry your mat, food and drinks if you're planning a picnic, some beaches offer those at a price, but it is better to be on the safer side. Be sure to also bring along a pair of hard slippers/sandals. People usually go barefoot in order to feel their legs piercing through the sands but this might not always be a good idea as some beaches may not clean up properly after parties and there might be sharp objects on the floor. ?Have your camera handy though; you?ll definitely need to take pictures by the water and on the horses. Dress ready to have fun! Nothing serious.
