Usually it’s an adult world. Grownups make the rules, as well as the menus and travel plans. But Xpress thinks kids should have their say, too — after all, young people account increasingly for a significant portion of commerce, as well as taking an interest in fashion and culture at younger ages than their parents did. Just think — this generation is the first to grow up not being able to imagine life without the Internet. They’re learning multiple languages in elementary school, playing educational games with the enthusiasm some reserved for Frogger, and trading MP3s like the previous generation traded Twinkies in the cafeteria. So, for kids visiting Asheville for the weekend, or resident children looking for something new to check out, here’s our roundup of local family-friendly and kid-centric entertainment, activities, eats, reads, and fashion.
