Looking for a family friendly way to beat this awful summer heat? How about hitting your favorite local — and air-conditioned — bowling alley?


Bowling is a great, retro way to enjoy family time. And you can't beat the access to the A/C! Even better, a number of bowling alleys across the country are participating in the Kids Bowl Free program. Kids Bowl Free was created as a way for bowling alleys to give back to the community and give kids a safe, fun place to hang out. 


Sign up for the program and your kid can bowl two free games — all summer long!


Check out Kids Bowl Free to find out more and see if there is a participating bowling alley in your area.
