Your Hyattsville apartments aren’t far from serious summer entertainment.

Running in circles and blowing bubbles may keep the youngsters occupied for a while, but soon you’ll need to pick an activity the whole family can enjoy outside your Hyattsville apartments. Try a family movie night out or grabbing a bite to eat at a surprisingly good café. Or, you can bring the whole clan to an outdoor concert complete with a food and drink garden.

Catch a Flick

The Regal Cinemas in Hyattsville brings the summer blockbusters to you. And this summer, they’re bringing back $1 family movies! On Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m., from June 19 to August 22, you can watch popular films with your young ones for just one dollar a ticket! Better yet, a portion of the proceeds go to charity. Modern originals like “The Lego Movie”, “Trolls”, and “Alvin and the Chipmunks” will appear alongside your favorite childhood characters re-envisioned: Ferdinand, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, and the Peanuts gang.

Eat a Bite

In addition to plenty of delicious, down-to-earth eateries all around, there’s now a critically acclaimed restaurant just 12 minutes from the Overlook Hyattsville apartments. Caracas de Ayer, formerly known as Café Azul, was named the best place for arepas by Eater DC. The menu now focuses specifically on traditional Venezuelan fare. With nearly a dozen combinations of ingredients tucked inside soft, warm and delicately chewy vessels, you’re sure to find a flavor that satisfies every member of the family.

Listen a While

Spending time outdoors is one of the greatest joys of the summer. The city of Hyattsville is taking advantage with its annual Summer Jam Series. Hosted at Gallatin St. from 6:30-8:30 p.m., this event provides entertainment for the whole family. In addition to local bands, there will be a moon bounce, face painting and plenty of yummy summer food. The Summer Jam Series happens on every third Friday through September 21.
