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 and lakes, 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!

Opt Indoors
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.
