Relax with your family and enjoy the season with the following summer staycation ideas. These suggestions allow you to go on vacation without stressing over planning or causing damage to your budget.
There are many local parks here in Monroe, including Forsythe Park and Lazarre Park on the riverfront. Go for hikes, play outside, and take walks. Make time to visit the Monroe Farmers’ Market, too.
Be a Tourist
Ever wondered what the most popular spot in town is for tourists? (Hint for Monroe residents: it’s the zoo). Think like a tourist and head out with the whole family to visit popular attractions in the city.
Do a Tasting Tour
Foodies will love this one. Conduct a “tasting tour” of your city by taking a week to enjoy different local eateries in Monroe. You can even hit multiple places in one day by going to one restaurant for appetizers, another for the main course, and then going somewhere for ice cream.
Hit a Trampoline Park
Kids love bounce houses and trampolines, and Monroe is home to two trampoline parks — Air U and Altitude! It’s a great way to stay cool while still getting out.
Have a Movie Marathon
Netflix binges are commonplace nowadays, but you could make a movie marathon a family event by putting on your pajamas, cozying up with snacks, and planning a themed movie night.
