Dining out with the family is always fun, especially during a family trip. Of course, Smyrna has numerous family-friendly restaurants, but some of them are so popular that they require reservations. However, there are other highly-rated restaurants that always have open seats.

One highly rated eatery in the area is Scalini’s Italian Restaurant. It has family meals for take-out, but if you want to eat at the restaurant, your kids can order from the kids’ menu and enjoy some dolci (sweets).

Another good restaurant for families is El Sol Mexican Bar and Grill. There are plenty of booths and tables there, and your family can enjoy Mexican Cuisine with a Cuban twist.

A Popular Trail

While in Smyrna, you can ride bicycles or walk for a few miles down the Silver Comet Trail, a popular 61.5-mile expanse that starts in Smyrna and meets up with the Chief Ladiga Trail of Alabama. The trail includes part of a former railway, yet there is no automobile traffic. You’ll have the road to yourselves, and you won’t have to bring bicycles with you because you can rent some before starting on the trail.


Would you like to go roller skating? Visit the Sparkles Family Fun Center, which has a large skating rink and allows patrons to bring their own skates (or rent them). Your family could spend hours there, because Sparkles also has an indoor playground and an arcade.

If you plan on visiting Smyrna in the summer, you can find great deals for hotels that have amenities like swimming pools and tennis courts.

Whether you go skating, ride bikes, or experience the local flavors of the city, there is much to do in Smyrna that you and your kids will enjoy. Keep these activities in mind as you’re planning your trip to the Jonquil City.
