Summer classes are just beginning, but the fun is still happening! With summertime finally here, we know it’s time to hit the pool and the beach. Follow our social media for some fun summer ideas and DIY projects. Please join us this month for our many events. There will be plenty of free food as well as awesome Midtown gear!

 

Special Highlight

 

Please keep pets from going to the bathroom in the hallways. No one wants to walk in dog pee or poo! There are doggy bags provided at several stations outside.

Summer Like a Local

 

Whether you’re going home or staying put for the summer, take advantage of all our community has to offer! Summers can be a great chance to enjoy the area in some new and different ways. With the hectic pace of school, many students miss out on opportunities to get involved and have fun in their local community during the academic year — it’s time to change that! From festivals to parks and local attractions, below are some ways you can summer like a local. As a bonus, most of them are either free or very affordable!

 

  • Do something touristy
  • Visit a farmers market
  • Check out a local sporting event
  • Visit your Chamber of Commerce website to find out about local attractions
  • Find a calendar of nearby fairs and festivals
  • Enjoy Fourth of July festivities and fireworks
  • Hike or bike a nearby trail
  • Volunteer with a local organization
  • Have a picnic
  • Go to an outdoor movie or concert
  • Run or walk a local 5K

 

We’ll also be planning events and activities for you throughout the summer, and if you need ideas for other fun things to do in the area, please let us know. We have information on area resources and a local calendar of events on hand to give you plenty of options. Have a memorable and fun summer!
