The forecast looks almighty! Perfect weather to head to a lake and take a dip or go for a paddle. Hit the beach and use some of the FREE beach items for the kids to play from Boat and Bike Rentals. Don't forget your sunscreen!
Heard of Disc Golf? Played with very similar rules to traditional Golf but with special frisbies or discs. There is a course map, score card and baskets instead of holes.
