Summer break has arrived for most kids! It's time to make plans and have some fun. I've made a list of our favorite summer activities and events. Enjoy the summer season, friends!

  1. Pick Your Own Berries - Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries and more can be found all around the Upper Valley. We love to pick our own berries and make delicious smoothies, jam and baked goods all summer long. 
  2. Find a Local Swimming Hole - Maybe it's a quiet spot along a river, or a lake near your home. Wherever it is, enjoy the warm, clear water and bright sunny skies.
  3. Attend an Outdoor Concert - Many Upper Valley towns host outdoor concerts weekly. 
  4. Head to the Beach - Whether you head to the lake, ocean or river, the beach is fun for everyone.
  5. Kayak, Canoe or Float Down a River - The Connecticut River and the White River are both excellent options for afternoon rides.
  6. Hike a Mountain - We love to explore the trails in the area. There are so many great options nearby and it's a great way to stay active and outdoors.
  7. Read a New Book - All of the local libraries have summer reading programs for kids and some even have adult reading programs! Or you can attend a book sale and grab some new books for a few dollars.
  8. Visit a Farmer's Market - There are so many great Farmers' Markets in the area. Personally, I love the markets held in Norwich, VT (Saturday mornings) and Lebanon, NH (Thursday evenings).
  9. Stop by a Food Truck - Colburn Park in Lebanon, NH has been taken over by a number of delicious food trucks during the lunch hours. Yum!
  10. Grab Some Ice Cream - We are frequent visitors of Ice Cream Fore-U, but we also make appearances at the Whippi Dip in Fairlee, VT and at the Dairy Twirl in Lebanon, NH.
  11. Go Mini Golfing - Golf Fore-U has a fun course that we love.
  12. See a Movie at the Drive-In - We like to visit the Fairlee Drive-In at least once a summer.
