Spending time with the grandkids over the summer is a time-honored tradition, and these days, with families so often spread from one end of the country to the other, it means even more. But sometimes, it can be hard to decide how to fill those days.
Try some of these suggestions, and when the day is done, come home to a relaxing soak in your hot tub from Brothers Pool. After all, spending time with the grandkids is fun. Keeping up with them … well, that’s sometimes the challenging part.
If your grandchildren are on the younger side (ages 1-7), they’ll love KidCity. On three floors, you and your grandchildren will enjoy handmade, one-of-a-kind exhibits made for hands-on play.
For the more adventurous souls, this state park offers hiking and nature trails, picnic areas, and fishing spots. On a pleasant summer day, this makes a great outing with the grandkids.
If your grandkids are at least 7 and feel the need for speed, chances are they’ll love OnTrack Karting. With a variety of packages – plus some of the longest and fastest indoor tracks in the country – you can’t go wrong with an outing here. (And if you find the racing a little bit much, you’ll find your after-race soak that much more rewarding.)
Feeling a little daring? Take the grandkids to the area’s top rock climbing gym. It may sound daunting, but the pros here are experienced in teaching even novices – of all ages – the ropes. Come on, give it a try!
If these options are quite what you’re looking for, remember the area has a number of parks and historical sites that are perfect for exploring, picnicking and more. And when the day is done, you can all enjoy fun and relaxation in your spa. Perfection!
