Family Visit, YIKES!

So my family is coming to visit me at college, I live off campus, and I dont wan't to sit around. The down side is everyone is strapped on cash, and the trip here is expensive, so I dont want to make plans that are going to put everyone in the hole. I know we're getting ice cream because there is a local place here that is AMAZING! But other than that I'm clueless. Its Ohio in March so outdoors is out. They want to see where I live and go to school, but past that I don't know what to show them?
Any suggestions?

Are there other stores/shops to go to around where you are?
You could do that.
Or play games inside. :)
Bundle up and go for a walk!
That's nice and it could be fun with a bunch of your family.
If you bundle up it shouldn't too cold?

Hope you have a great time!

Theyre calling for 40's so I'm not holding my breath, plus I'm in the snow belt, which ruins all kinds of planning lol

We had relatives that did that when we lived in Colorado. They used to drop in on other relatives too, to mooch off of them and us!

My family comes into town all the time. Most of them live here too, but from my house they come to see other relatives so they're here a lot. Just this week, I had lunch with my grandpa on Tuesday. I had dinner with my mom, grandma and step-grandpa on Thursday night. I'm having dinner tonight with my step-grandma and on Sunday I'm going to have dinner again with my mom, grandma and step-grandpa. Needless to say I have loads of extra meal points here at college. :) And I don't miss the homecooked meals too much either.

Usually we just eat (in or go out) and then maybe catch a movie or my step-grandpa likes to make me watch HeeHaw.
