Do you want to feel like you have stepped into a family night from the past? You can do just that at the Starlite Drive-in! We enjoyed an old-fashioned night out recently with our kids. I was trying to find a place for a family night that the girls would enjoy but that would be a good option for a newborn. Octavia was only a month old at the time.
I stumbled upon this while searching options in the greater Cincinnati area. The Starlite Drive-in is located in Amelia, OH. This is an extremely affordable option for taking a family to the movies. They do a double feature. Prices are currently: 12 and up is $8.75 and kids 4-11 are $5.25. Three and under is free. You can buy a food permit for $5 and bring in outside food. I stopped at the grocery earlier in the day and picked up some favorite snack food. We brought a cooler for juice and water bottles. The entire outing cost me under $50.
We took the minivan for this trip. We turned the backseat around and laid out blankets in the back. The kids had a blast. I didn’t have to worry about where to feed the baby. Best of all we got to spend some time together snuggling and it gave us a great memory. Your kids only stay little for a short time. Make as many amazing memories as you can!
