Your kid-friendly guide to getting out-and-about town.

The Wizard of Oz, a dance performance and a Poway hike to see the first signs of spring.

Beautiful music, young dancers and a certain Wizard (we don't mean Harry Potter).

These are some of the options if you're looking for fun things to do and see with your family near Ramona and in San Diego through March 15. You also can enjoy a Sunday hike and indulge in a spaghetti dinner to support a local school.
