Looking for some sweet indoor activities for kids? A great non-traditional kids' bowling opportunity is right under your nose! If your aspiring mermaids and mermen (or marine biologists) want to take a trip beneath the surface for a wild ride, here's your chance...and we can't believe we haven't been here before.

The kitschy undersea decor at Uncle Buck's Fish Bowl and Grill, a restaurant, bar and 12-lane bowling alley located in Bridgeport, CT, delivers loads of charm with themed lighting, backdrops, custom bowling balls that look like an octopus or mermaid and even wooden lanes with faux sea turtles, sharks, stingrays and other salt water critters—the perfect spot to visit for a quick weekend trip!

Bowl Mon–Fri 11am–5pm ($25/hour per lane), Sun–Thu after 5pm ($30/hr per lane) and Fri 5pm–Sunday until 5pm ($35/hr per lane). No more than eight people to a lane. Shoe rentals $3.25. Billiards is also available at this location.

Head to the grill for tasty American fare, or stop by the island-theme bar if the adults are in need of a cocktail or two. There, you'll find real tropical fish swimming in a 750-gallon saltwater aquarium.
