Last Minute Vacay? Yes please!
Did summer slip away? You still have a few days before its back to school (back to the grind for us parents!).
Here are a few fun places to go before that won't break the bank or your PTO!
Turner Falls: I recently went here and it was beautiful! Such a fun place for a quick days getaway with the kids! Just remember their life jackets- they are required! Here is a peaceful spot I found when visiting...so beautiful.
Lake Hefner: Bring your kayak, bike, fishing pole, picnic lunch, or just a water bottle for a few hours of fun! There are restaurants on the lake if you get hungry, parks for the kids, walking trails for miles! Such a great retreat from the city without the drive!
Photo Op Stops: Pose in front of the giant OKC in the Wheeler District, walk across the Skydance Pedestrian Bridge or get crazy with the murals in the Plaza District. Better yet, look through this blog about all the best OKC murals from a blogger we love. She’s got all the best murals for photo ops outlined for you.
Downtown Stay at the Omni: I've heard such good things about the new Omni hotel in OKC. Stay the night and enjoy some time "away" or do the stay and play pass which gives you access to the facilities (including that rooftop pool! You can even rent a cabana!)
Scissortail Farmers Market : Come support some local farmers and entrepreneurs at the farmers market! My kids love going because they always find a yummy treat and get the enjoy some park time at Scissortail Park! They usually have some live music or entertainment and even some educational pop ups by the park rangers.
Even if you can't make it out and about over the next few days, that's okay! So many memories can be made at home with our kids! Just love on them and they will feel like a million bucks.
