Summer time is the time to find ways to beat the heat. The little ones are at home too with their summer vacations and the need to find cooling activities is all the more pertinent especially with an added element of them being fun. At times like this parents often find themselves at a loss of ideas on how to keep summers healthy and fun.
The most usual recourse is to get the children inside and out of the scorching heat. That means that the little ones cannot even get to play on the commercial playground structures. So here is a small guide for the parents for fun activities that will keep your children cool and happy at the same time.Error, group does not exist! Check your syntax! (ID: 47)
Ferry Ride Anyone?
Take your little ones on an entertaining ferry ride over the Bay to the Angel Island State Park. It will not only help in keeping the temperature down but will also help in exploring historic sites and having a picnic with their favorite treats.
Pools Are Equally Good
Sign your little ones for swimming classes or even better take them for a visit to the Hamilton Community Pool in Novato. The fun slides and play structures will keep your little ones cheery for long as well as give you the joy of swimming in the bigger pool at the same time. The lawn area also has BBQ grills which will make the entire day a healthy activity with fun exercise and a hearty meal.
Spring Lake Water Park
Head north to the Santa Rosa’s Spring Lake Regional Park and let your children play at the inflatable water park. You can get to swim too and have quality family fun time.
Heard Of Redwoods?
The magnificent redwood forest in the heart of Marin is an interesting spot for the whole family to enjoy. The Muir Woods near the Mill Valley are excellent oasis for cool. Even better would be to take a trip to the Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve outside of Guerneville in Sonoma County. It will provide all the fun of the woods without the parking hassle.
Point Reyes Beach
Marin is guaranteed to be cool when the inland is hot so it is always a good idea to cool down by driving towards this beautiful spot. All the fun of a beach is available here. So pack your favorite treats and take your little ones on a family trip. Bring the kites and watch your children giggle and smile in the cool weather and on the wet surface. No commercial playground can match the joy that your kids will experience by running around and chasing kites. Some of the popular spots include the Chicken Ranch beaches and the Liman tour.
What better way to take down the heat than taking a dip in the fresh water? Visit the McNears beach and swim and relax to your heart’s content. This has been a favorite summer fun spot for families for decades and it has good reason for its popularity. The waters of San Polo Bay combined with an ice-cream or a Popsicle is the sure shot way to bring joy and fun to your little ones. This is also a good picnic spot for you to enjoy quiet quality time with your loved ones.
