The term “spring break” conjures up images of a beach, an island and palm trees, but sometimes a “staycation” is all you need. If you’re staying local this spring break, here are a few tips to make the most of your time — at Hazard Center.
Keep the kiddos entertained
Need some peace and quiet? Sit back and relax at UltraStar Mission Valley Cinemas. A great way to keep the kids entertained for a few hours while you enjoy some concession snacks and a beverage—they’ve got beer and wine!
