We get lots of sunny days in Pooler, but like anyplace else the weather is not always ideal. It’s no biggie, though, when it’s raining outside because there are still plenty of things to do. Here, we’ve compiled a list of eight ways to spend leisure time on a rainy day when boredom starts to set in.

Make it a museum day.

Whether it’s your first time going to the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force, or you’re a “frequent flier,” the experience is a fascinating one. The accounts of courage and patriotism of the members of this storied fighting force never grow old and you can keep up with progress on the restoration of the B-17 Flying Fortress.

Take a spin or two around the skating rink.

Strap on those roller skates and glide along at SK8 City. It’s good old-fashioned fun. Depending on what day of the week it is, you’ll catch themes like Glow Sessions or music from the 70s, 80s and 90s. And, don’t forget that skating isn’t the only thing you can do there. Arcade games await you, and kids can also slide, swing, climb and bounce in the soft play area.


Score some strikes and play some games.

A rainy day is an ideal time to perfect your strike at Frames n’ Games.  But if bowling doesn’t strike your fancy that day, grab a spot in the 5-D movie ride where the seats move and you’re virtually a part of the film. Or, pop into the laser tag room with the express intent to zap your opponent.  Note that they have added new titles to their arcade games. So the rain can be a good excuse to get your game on! 


Dine at the movies or simply catch a flick.

Both the Royal Cinemas multiplex and GTC Pooler Cinemas boast stellar lineups of films. Which one you choose depends on your mood. Do an IMAX 3D film or dinner and a movie at the same time at Royal Cinemas. Or opt for the GTX experience at Pooler Cinemas. Recline in your luxury seat and let the colossal screen, crystal clear picture and 360-degree sound pull you in.


Get in some retail therapy at the outlet mall.

Shop for a couple of hours or shop all day at Tanger Outlets. As you most likely already know, there are loads of bargains to be had. So, put on some comfortable shoes, saunter from store to store and score some savings. Tanger has made it even easier for you to find and save on your favorite things through the official Tanger Outlets App.


Get in the zone.

The Pooler Fun Zone that is. More specifically unleash your inner child in the arcade. You and the kids can go old school and take on some of the classic games. Air hockey anyone? Otherwise, you can go for your choice of the newer stuff – musical gameplay like Grand Piano Keys or Jurassic Park for the dinosaur obsessed. Then again, you could mix old and new. Whatever’s fun for you!


Go play with paint.

Even if drawing stick figures challenges you, why not give a painting class a try. See if a class is available at Painting with a Twist, reserve a seat and take your beverage of choice (BYOB for guests 21+ except for Family Day classes). No experience? No problem. No painting supplies? They provide them.  All you have to do is show up, paint along with the artist, and then beam with pride as you take your artwork home.


Indulge in comfort food.

Grab your umbrella and go out to eat or have your rainy-day meal delivered to you. The tough part is choosing among the diverse array of restaurants in Pooler. The good part is – with most every cuisine under the sun to pick from – you can get your comfort food fix for the day, whatever your preference.
