Every parent wants their child to have a fun and memorable birthday celebration, whatever that might look like for their family. If you’re like me, your kids’ birthdays happen in cold months, and a party in the backyard or at a local park are not possible. Here are my favorite unique indoor birthday party spots in and around Detroit!
