My wife and I continue to rack our brains for creative and fun things to take our 3 1/2 year old daughter out to do on the weekends.

Hello and welcome to the board!

I'm all the way on the other side of the country, so I won't have specific ideas, but maybe a few general ones?

Have you taken her to the zoo? My boys LOVE going to the zoo and we make a day trip out of it, even packing a lunch to eat in the park. The library is also a favorite destination for my boys and we often visit story times and special events they hold on the weekends. Parks are well loved too, especially if they have a duck pond where the boys can observe wildlife. The local rec center has a great indoor pool we enjoy year-round as well and even has a shallow area for my youngest.

In my town a local publication comes out each month that is filled with family activities. Usually I can pick one up at the library and I've noticed them at the grocery store as well. Do you have anything like that in your area? If so, they are usually filled with dates for parades, festivals, and community events that are usually a ton of fun!
