Last year we created a post full of overnight trips for families that was a hit and our post on outdoor fun is being used tons this summer too for obvious reasons. We know that during these times where summer vacations are cancelled and visits from friends and relatives are on hold, you are searching for ways to get out of your house and on an adventure. Maybe you have crossed some state parks and beaches off your list already and you have already visited the great gardens and trails in our area.
