Here are three easy ways to get the most out of summer with the family at home,” said Doug Cashmere, of Ace Hardware & Hearth.

Here are three easy ways to get the most out of summer with the family at home.”
Relax in the Backyard with a Swim Spa – Extend family vacation fun by making a ‘get away’ spot right in the backyard. Forget expensive hotels and air travel. Swim spas make it easy to create family fun right in your own backyard. Swim spas are great for patios and porches, and the wide variety of sizes available means almost anyone can find a spot where a swim spa will fit perfectly.
Slipping into the peaceful, warm water instantly creates a watery conversation pit that the whole family will enjoy, and the lap pool options and powerful massage jets will soothe any aches and pains from a day spent in the sun.
Plan an Excursion to Local Museums – It isn’t necessary to travel great distances and spend a lot of money to experience something interesting and new. Check out what museums are available in the towns and cities near home. Chances are there are some unusual and interesting things to find right near home.
Everyone in the family can enjoy learning about history, art and nature right in their own geographical backyard. The summer fun doesn’t have to stop at the common, however. Take a little time to dig around on an excursion to find the weird and wonderful museums that might be right outside the backdoor.
Pack It Up and Go Camping – Nothing beats camping for outdoor fun, and summertime is the perfect time to do it. Pack up the family car, throw in a tent and some sleeping bags and experience the great outdoors. Look for unique environments such as local lakes or state parks that offer camping and it won’t be necessary to travel far. Many state parks offer low cost camping spots where the family can enjoy nature and park amenities for a week for about the cost of one night’s stay in an economy hotel.
For just a little more money, families can choose private campgrounds that have features such as pools, tennis courts, large playgrounds and other pastimes. It is still possible, although difficult, to find free spots to camp in some areas in the U.S. However, always consider safety when looking for such locations. Sometimes it’s better to pay a few dollars to have a secure campground to spend time with the family.
