There's no denying this will be a tough school year. With so many uncertainties, it's a challenge to enjoy these…
Summer has arrived and we’re ready for it! Now that we’re able to travel more freely, we’re excited to spend a little more time out the house and around town.
Spend a Day at the Beach
Get out the house and onto the sand. Pack the sunscreen, beach umbrella and sand toys for a day of play the kids will love. Here are 20 family-friendly beaches in metro Detroit.
Shop A Farmers Market
Nothing says summer like a Saturday morning at the market. Whether you go as a family outing or a quick run to stock up, nothing beats farm fresh goodies for a picnic or backyard BBQ. Find a farmers market near you.
Go to a U-Pick Farm
U-Pick Farms are able to operate this summer and we couldn’t be more excited to pick strawberries. We’ll be heading to Blakes to gather produce for dinner, donuts for the kids and hard cider for late nights by the bonfire. Check out our guide to U-Pick Farms in metro Detroit and start making plans.
Visit The Newly Renovated Guernsey Shop
Hot summer days require delicious ice cream and at the Guernsey Ice Cream Scoop Shop and Soda Bar you can taste test your way through 48 signature flavors! You can also skip the kitchen and get carry-out of the famous Guernsey Buttermilk Fried Chicken for a family feast!
Sign-Up For Summer Camp
It’s a different kind of summer vacation this year and whether you’re looking for in-person camps or something virtual to keep the kids occupied, we have guides to help you find what’s right for your family.
Go To The Drive-In
USA Hockey Summer Drive-In has long been my favorite evening activity. It’s a fun family night/date night (no babysitter needed when the kids are sleep in the car), that allows you to get out the house and have some fun while safely in your car. BONUS: You can have food delivered to your car too. Check out our list of local drive-ins and find one near you.
Hit the Trails (and Get A Bike Trailer)
Spend time on a local bike trail with the kids this summer. Being outside is good for your health and biking is great exercise. If you’re not yet equip for the activity, here are some tips and equipment you may want when biking with kids.
