Summer fun

Weather's getting warmer, the school year is ending, and families are itching for things to do. Wondering what's out there? Communities are brimming with options and more information is often just a click away. Tap into these 10 simple ways to keep busy this summer.

10 ways to keep summer fun

  • Reach out to your local Parks and Recreation departments. Festivals, theater, outdoor concerts, and free summer movies are just a few examples of what may be happening right around the corner.
  • Enjoy a day of play at the park. Take the dog for a walk, have a picnic, or go on a bike ride.
  • Keep cool. Visit your local pool, waterpark, or splash park. Or, set up a sprinkler in the backyard.
  • Go wild. Discover what your local zoo or wildlife refuge has to offer. 
  • Get inspired. Experience art, history, science, or culture at a museum or exhibit.
  • Unleash imagination and creativity. Contact local craft stores about kid-friendly programs and events.
  • Become one with nature. Go fishing, hiking, or camping.
  • Check out the local library. Most libraries offer summer reading programs just for kids.
  • Stop and smell the flowers. Take a trip to a nearby botanical garden.
  • Use your resources. Visit local tourist offices and websites for travel deals and discounts. Choose a destination offering free attractions.

Bottom line: summer fun doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. Unplug, unwind, and get out there and explore!
