Family Fun in the Sun

Make the most of family time this summer.


| June 25, 2012


In today’s hurry-up world, many families are looking for ways to slow down a little and spend some quality time together, just having fun. The good news is that it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, and you don’t have to go very far to have a great time.

Here are some ways your family can make the most of family time and have some serious fun.

Become day trippers.

Feel like getting out of town, but don’t want to go far? Try a family day trip.



State parks: You can go on a hike or bike ride, have a picnic and enjoy the great outdoors on your own, or participate in events such as fishing tournaments, wildlife education, moonlight walks or star gazing talks.

Nearby cities: Play tourist in a city that’s close by, but you haven’t been to before. Check out the local shops, museums, parks and restaurants; you may be surprised at how much there is to do. Get suggestions from your friends using Bing’s new social search features; someone you know may have recently been there and have some great ideas. Or you could find people who are experts on that area and can help you find the perfect place to visit.
