    I assume you are talking about the Amtrak station downtown. Right next to the station is not too much for them, but pretty close by is:
    The Lakeshore (about 1 mile away)
    ----Fly a kite at Veteran's Park?
    ----Paddleboats
    Betty Brinn Children's Museum (Other museums, too) less than 1 mile
    Check the festival schedule, there are usually kid days (about 1 mile)(summerfest.com/otherevents/f...
    Maybe a boat cruise (depends)

    The Amtrack station is about three blocks south of Wisconsin avenue. Your best bet would be just to catch a bus on Wisconsin Avenue and head east to the lakefront (approx a 10 min bus trip). On the lakefront they would have a ball.....the new Discovery World Museum, the Childrens Museum, Art Center and slightly north of the Art Center is a wonderful park with roller blade rentals, paddle boats etc.
