Summer break is in full swing! Schools out, responsibilities slow and the need for sunshine is all consuming. Summer break is halfway over, and those tan lines are all you have to show for it. Beach days in Florida can start to blend and the next thing you know, summers over. Don’t let it go to waste, there are plenty of things you can do to maximize your summer right at home. Here are four things you can do to maximize your summer break at home:
Rediscover your Home
We always forget what our homes have to offer when we’re always on the go. Summer is the perfect time to focus on where we spend most of our free time, in our homes! Take a walk around your neighborhood and get reacquainted with the things and people around you. Have a family picnic or camp out in your backyard. Catch up on that show everyone’s talking about. Have a closet or garage that needs reorganizing? No one said you couldn’t be productive this summer.
Learn Something New
If you do have the urge to be productive this summer, try out something new! Maybe plant that garden you’ve always wanted or test out your cooking skills with a new recipe. Take a fitness class you’ve never done before like yoga or kickboxing, or both! Reading a new book is always a good way to learn too. Reading can also lead you to a newfound interest or hobby!
Tour your Own Town
Be a tourist in your hometown! Explore your city’s landmark. How many times have you driven by that historic statue in your local park and never noticed the plaque underneath it? Visit your local museum and learn about your city’s history. Check your local sites for events being held nearby. There’s probably a farmer’s market full of local, community goods and produce.
Miniature golf is something a lot of people think of doing when on vacation. But did you know that there’s an 18-hole miniature golf course in Lakeland? It is fun for all ages and a great date-night activity, too, and it is located at our favorite fun spot, Family Fun Center!
Channel your Inner Child
Dust off those board games in the back of your closet and start a game night for family and friends to enjoy. Remember that jungle gym you saw while exploring your local parks? Challenge your kids to a relay race across the monkey bars, down the slide and over to the swings! Too hot? Take the fun indoors and stay cool at the Family Fun Center. Whatever you do, just have fun!
Rediscovering your home, learning something new, touring your hometown and channeling your inner child will ensure you make the most of what’s left of your summertime in Florida. Family Fun Center is perfect for all ages and will be a summer memory you won’t soon forget. Start planning your visit to Family Fun Center today!
