  • you can ask neighbors, google, go on tripadvisor.com - they give some great advice of local things to do! do you have facebook? post that question there as well for those in your local area. also, here on cafemom, join a group for your local area and get suggestions and tips from there

  • I don't know specifically about your area, but we like to go to local parks for hiking trails, the library, local parks and playgrounds at schools.

    If you like playgrounds and have a camera, you can make a project out of visiting as many as you can, taking a picture of each one and pasting them in a book. When you spend time doing these types of things, the value is in the time spent and the conversations you can have :)

  • Send off for a state travel guide. Look into your states State Parks.
    Those are great sources of 'hidden treasures' for us.

    You'll prob be surprised at just how much there really is to do in
    your area.
