Top Family Friendly Summer Activities

Drive In Movies - Bring the family out and pop off the convertible top to catch the latest flicks at your local drive in movie theater.  Skip the concession stands and bring your own homemade popcorn to catch the double feature. Show your kiddo’s what all the rage was in the 1950’s and 60’s. Check out the drive in directory, to find your nearest location.

Outdoor Movies - Break out your picnic basket and blanket, sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Outdoor theaters have become a hot ticket in the U.S. Locations range from parks, rooftops, patios, open air shopping malls and cemeteries. The best part? It can also be a food truck haven.

Culture At The Park- All throughout the summertime, local parks and community organizations put together free events like Shakespeare at the park, art workshops and fitness classes. Major cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago host events every weekend of the summer. For the smaller towns, we suggest looking at your community calendars on your county’s official website.

Water Activities - The sun’s out and the weather is hot! There’s an endless list of water activities for the great outdoors, in your backyard or at an amusement park. You can fish, canoe, sail or take a paddle boat ride. Set up a slip n slide, inflatable pool and have a water ballon fight in the comfort of your own backyard. And of course, there are waterparks where you can lay on a raft in a lazy river lagoon or fly down a massive water slide. You might want to check to see if a Slide The City event is coming to a town near you.

Concerts-  Our idea of the perfect summer evening would be catching a symphony at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. Did we mention that it’s BYOB (or food)?  If you can’t get to LA, search for free outside venues with concerts in your area.
