Biking with family or friends is a great activity for exercise, seeing the sites and socialization. Be sure to depart in the morning or evening though to avoid the heat
Hike a trail, climb a mountain or walk a sidewalk to the Farmer's Market, but get outdoors and move together. It's bonding time with the family telling jokes and discussing nature around you!
Family fun month is the time to spend outdoors with your kids, siblings or grandparents enjoying the the sunshine, warm temperatures and freedom!
