Now that summer is quickly approaching with the beautiful sunny days, now is the time to start thinking about things to do as a family to get outside and enjoy the weather. Here are some ideas to help.

Take a break from the yardwork and spring household cleaning, and enjoy a nice walk or bike on the Cumberland Valley Rail Trail. It’s a great way to get some exercise and soak up the peaceful tranquility of nature and all that it offers. The Shippensburg Community Parks and Recreation Authority is hosting “Movies in the Park” and the Shippensburg Public Library has “Monday Matinees” and “Family Movie Nights” with movies for everyone in the family to enjoy. While you’re at the library, you may also find a great new book to check out and catch up on some reading.
