Seasons change, time passes, and children grow. That’s why it’s important to cherish time spent with family at each stage in their lives. As lives change and interests develop, summer is constant. Things are calmer, days are longer, and there is so much fun to be had. At Arcadia, our favorite way to spend summer with family is a weekend at the lake.
If you have children, there are a ton of options: tube, ski, wakeboard, or find the nearest rope swing. Our favorite snacks for a day on the boat include a fresh, homemade pineapple salsa paired with chips. Hop on board for a day well spent!
As your kids grow, your list of activities expands. Spend your days sipping a summer cocktail while listening to your favorite playlist. Ours is “Yacht Rock” on Spotify. Grab your flamingo float and head to the shore to soak up some sun! The relaxation doesn’t stop here! Dine at Lakeside Tavern, Calhoun’s on the River, or pack a picnic to enjoy by the water.
As your children have little ones of their own, the grandparent’s house is their favorite place to be during the summer. You can go fishing at the Harbour House, have a picnic by the shore, catch fireflies in your backyard, and make s’mores by the bonfire. Spice up your s’mores by adding Reese’s cups or Nutella – it’s sure to be a hit with the kids!
Whoever you’re with, Arcadia has endless options for your lake weekend.
