With the summer holidays just a couple of weeks away, taking a break from the routine and mundane will be on the minds of many children and parents. While, it may not be possible for everyone to afford a luxurious holiday, this is no time to mop and fret, for namma Bengaluru itself offers plenty of options in terms of fun and entertainment.
Martin farm: An ideal place for a picnic or even a birthday celebration,
this small farm, off Sarjapur road,
houses cows, sheep, goats, horses, donkeys and even turtles and a couple
of Emus. Young children would definitely enjoy their time feeding and watching
these animals in their natural habitat.
Here are top ten places that you can visit in Bangalore this summer:HAL aerospace museum: Anyone with little boys at home will know that boys and planes go hand in hand.
