Staycations have been a mainstay here for the month of July. But it’s hard to get creative and come up with ideas. Then it hit me — why not find the tourist attractions by visiting the tourism visitors bureau? Then we could become hometown tourists!
A quick visit to the tourism visitors bureau yielded many great ideas of places that I swear I knew about at one time but, being a local, had completely forgot!
One of the best little spots that was “re-found” was a great little hidden park near the Art Gallery. While one part of the park is easily accessible and quite visible (and absolutely gorgeous with a sweet and serene waterfall area that also entertains the kids with the areas to run around), the forgotten part of this area was the most fun!
Behind the gallery is a little path and then some fun wooden steps. Because it is in a area with foliage it even feels like an adventure! And, when you come out the other side? Some great art that kids (big and small!) could play in!
