Fun, Affordable and Local Summer Outings for the Whole Family
Summer vacation is a special time for families to regroup and reconnect after another busy school year. There’s no rule that says you must leave town to have a great time. Here are a few local outings that we think your whole family will enjoy:
Take a Field Trip to a Farmers’ Market
Schedule a weekly family field trip to your nearest farmers’ market
and explore the tasty, fresh produce harvested right in our own backyards. Encourage your kids to try a new fruit or veggie during every visit and invite them to ask the vendors questions about the produce and how it was grown. Purchase a few family favorites and use them to revamp summertime snacks and meals.
Explore the Outdoors
Placer County is filled with stunning state parks, hiking trails, museums
, all just waiting to be explored. Choose a destination, pack a picnic and set out on a family adventure. Don’t forget to bring plenty of water, sunscreen and a camera to capture the precious memories you create with your family!
Visit the Placer County Fair
Summer doesn’t seem complete without a visit to the fair, a ride on the Ferris wheel and a soft serve ice cream cone. Hosted at the beautifully renovated @The Grounds in Roseville, the Placer County Fair is set for June 21-24. There is plenty of fun to be had by all!
Poor air quality is always a risk during the hot summer months. Break out the board games, pop in a movie, build an indoor fort, and opt for an enjoyable and FREE family night in.
