It’s hard to believe that the summer break is starting to wind down. In just over a month the little ones will head back to school, and we’ll be getting ready for the gorgeous foliage that fall brings our way. Not to worry though, there’s still plenty of time to get in some great quality time with your family. Here are a few great ideas to put on your “before summer ends” list.
Cycle The Waterfront
Get the bikes out; strap on your helmets and make your way to the Clarington’s diverse waterfront, which features close to 37 kilometers of wetlands, meadows, forests, bluffs and beaches. Why not pack a lunch and make an afternoon of it? You can find a great spot to picnic in nearby Darlington Provincial Park, which is roughly a 20-minute cycle from Lakebreeze.
Take A Camping Trip
Pack your tent, sleeping bags and air mattresses and spend an evening under the stars. Summer isn’t summer without a family campfire complete with s’mores. Looking for a great location in Bowmanville? You can try Cedar Park Resort, which has a wonderful water park, or Darlington Provincial Park. Keep in mind that you’ll need to call ahead to reserve your space.
Take In The Bowmanville Zoo
Did you know that Bowmanville is home to one of the oldest private zoos in North America? It’s also one of the largest suppliers of animals for Hollywood movies and TV programs – like Robbie, the tiger who starred in The Interview with Seth Rogan. They also offer private encounters with lion cubs, tiger cubs, and even lemurs.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s lots to do in – and around – Bowmanville. Get out there and enjoy summer while you can!
