Family Fun

Looking for family fun? Hudson Cinema Plaza features family fun activities on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. First run movies can be viewed on the big screen at the movie theater.  Take the family bowling at Hudson Lanes. 


For a more quiet time, walk the Findlay Trail or let your imagination take you to the days of the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern Railroad trains as you stroll along the trestle trail.  Walk along the Bean Creek to the north on the Bean Creek Linear Trail  and cross over Jackson Street and you can be on the old train bridge built back in 1922. While on Murdock Trail you can still see the old dam and the old markers for the Cincinnati Northern Railroad.  As you go along Murdock Trail you will end up at the Lincoln Elementary School.  If you continue on the trails you will be crossing Maple Grove Avenue and walking along the Hudson High School cross country track and soon you will join the Berlin Trail.  This is between woods and a field where you can enjoy the peace and quite.  As you continue even farther you will join up with the Engle Trail.  This trail is surrounded by meadows and behind the Rima Manufacturing Company and Southern Michigan Center for Science and Industry.  If you cross over the M-34, you would have done a 3K walk and this will be the start and end of your walk.  

Back at the intersection by Bean Creek where the Bean Creek Linear Trail is, if you stay on the south side of Main Street you will be on Thompson Trail.  This trail travels south along the creek and once you enter onto Mechanic Street  turn right and finish the trail before St Giles Street.  This part of the trail will get take you on the Cincinnati Northern Railroad to the Thompson Memorial Park.  Here you can have the kids play on the playground or follow the soccer fields all the way to the back of the fields.  There is a place you can sit near the creek and relax.

The City also has four parks for the kids to play and where the summer and fall recreation will be playing.

Just five miles southeast of town, the Lake Hudson State Recreation Area offers camping, fishing and boating, as well as the State’s only Dark Skies Preserve for stargazers.  Popular tourist destination Devil’s Lake is only 10 miles north of the City.
