Deal/Family Activity-Bowling

Hello All-

My family is always looking for affordable family nights. We have discovered the joys of bowling!

All the bowling alleys in Eugene/Springfield are now smoke free which makes it much better for kids.

I recommend Timber Bowl (Springfield)-if you haven't been for's worth a new visit..recently cleaned up, non-smoking and new bowling machines in March give this alley a nice face lift it so desperately needed!

They offer discount nights on Tues/Thurs. They also offer coupons in the Entertainment Book and the Springfield Extra in the Register Guard.

Also check out other bowling spots around town Emerald Lanes, Fir Bowl, Strike City for times/pricing and possibly call ahead as league is currently going and open bowling times vary.

When you bowl you pay for shoes and the games you bowl. If this is an activity you start doing on a regular basis, I recommend buying shoes (if your feet have stopped growing!). The shoes will pay for themselves within a few months if you go on a regular basis. Shoe rentals average $2/session, so I purchased a brand new pair of shoes for my husband on eBay for $ investment up front, but after 11 visits we have them paid for! eBay has some fun vintage styles, his happen to be the classic bowling alley look, but new with box...yes!

Happy Fun & Saving!

Summer H.
