Become a Summer Tourist

There are many activities in or around your city that you probably know all the tourists go to, but when was the last time you went? Just because you have been there many
times before along with your children doesn’t mean they wouldn’t love to go again (and again and again).

Take a few days during the summer break to visit attractions and destinations that you haven’t been to in awhile. If you know that the place is going to be crowded on the
weekend or in the afternoons go on a weekday morning. The added benefit of being a local and going to a tourist destination is that you know the ins and outs and the tricks to
get the most out of your day. Become a Summer Tourist
