Summer is a time for making memories. Boise, Meridian, and the surrounding areas offer so many great opportunities to enjoy your summer without breaking the bank! Check out some of Plumbing Solutions of Idaho’s top recommendations to enjoy your summer months.
Make a Plan
It’s hard to say no to opportunities for fun in the sun, especially if your family members have varied interests. There’s swimming, fishing, cycling, tennis, soccer, camping… the list goes on and on. Make a decision early on and stick to it.
Stay in Boise
Traveling for the summer can be fun and enriching. But Boise has so much to offer, you don’t need to travel far to enjoy your summer in Idaho! Save on flights and accommodation by visiting local attractions, camping nearby, or doing day trips to nearby towns. Some of our favorite activities in Boise are:
- Float the Boise River
- Visit the Boise Famers Market on Saturday in Downtown Boise
- Take a hike in the Boise Foothills or up to Table Rock
Check out Meridian
- Check out local parks and splash pads
- Watch movies in the park
- Visit the Village and Kleiner Park in Meridian
Simple backyard fun
You don’t have to leave your home to enjoy the beautiful weather. Have a backyard campout, invite friends over for a barbecue, set up a volleyball net and have a family tournament. Sitting around a backyard fire pit making jokes and telling stories will bring you closer together as a family than running around trying to get everyone’s activities in. This applies year-round but keeping it simple and focusing on what’s important will also help you to keep your summer costs down.
Choose activities for the whole family
Part of making memories is spending time together as a family. You can save both time and money by choosing activities that everyone can participate in. Your kids don’t need costly organized summer activities to enjoy the season. As long as your family is together, you can enjoy the time while making memories that last a lifetime.
You don’t have to spend a fortune in order to enjoy your summer. Staying local and embracing all the great amenities in the Boise area is a great way to have fun! With these tips, you and your family can have a memorable summer this year!
