We’re half way through summer and here to hold on to the warm days and long nights. If you’re looking for activities for empty days on the calendar, here are fun activities your family will love.


Summer Essentials

Soak up the sun all day long. Let the kids run around at the playground, take nature walks, make a splash at the pool or beach, and stay up late watching movies. Watch long time favorites at outdoor showings or new releases at the drive in!

Try Something NEW

There’s still time to make your summer bucket list. Here are NEW places to explore in metro Detroit.

Plan A Road Trip

You don’t have to go far to have a getaway. Change up your usual routine and treat the family to a day trip (or even a hotel stay) to somewhere new.

Enjoy A Family Dinner

Pick up your ingredients at the farm or farmers market, pack a picnic blanket and find the perfect place to sit al fresco. Whether you’re looking for waterfront views or a picture perfect setting, metro Detroit offers some great picnic spots. After you eat, don’t forget to stop for a cool treat.
