Day trips are fun and a must for many of us during the Summer. But, for the days we want to stay close to home or maybe only have a few hours to spend, we need ideas of things to do in our town. And, the list is long. I have come up with a small list here of some of our favorites. If you have one that isn’t here, please share!
