If you are delayed while flying with your kids keeping them entertained is important for you and everyone around you. Some airports make this easy with children’s play areas. I have compiled a list of play areas inside major US airports. I would love to keep this list updated, so if you are flying and find a play area for an airport I would love if you could leave me a comment or send me a message. Thank you for your help!
