For fishing enthusiasts, summertime is heaven. It’s only half about snagging that trophy bass, of  course. Just kicking up your feet, popping open an ice-cold beverage and taking an afternoon nap is the definition of relation. Check out these great fishing spots, or find a guide to take you to their favorite places.

Kayaking and floating are also great family-friendly weekend options.

Cave Hunting

Caves are cool – literally. They’re like natural air conditioning. The temperature inside is usually many degrees colder than outside. Cave tours take an hour or two and offer wow-worthy photo opportunities in front of stalactites and stalagmites.

Lush Parks

The area’s numerous parks let the whole family unleash your athletic side with sand volleyball, soccer and disc golf. It’s no secret that the best place to cool off is the outdoor pool at McCauley Park. Two Rivers Mountain Bike Park is another must-see summer spot that kids, teens and adults all love.
