Summertime

It’s all but mid-July and the lazy-hazy-crazy days of summer are upon us. It seemed like Mother Nature took her sweet time getting around to summer weather, but it appears to be here finally. So how are you spending your summer? Since I don’t have a pool or really know anyone who does, I’m looking

It’s all but mid-July and the lazy-hazy-crazy days of summer are upon us. It seemed like Mother Nature took her sweet time getting around to summer weather, but it appears to be here finally.

So how are you spending your summer? Since I don’t have a pool or really know anyone who does, I’m looking at other ways to spend my summer days and evenings.

I know you are probably tired of hearing me say it, but there is always something to do around the area, and there are more and more options all the time.

The more recent, and intriguing, addition is the Hatchet House downtown. This is a cool new place where you can go to throw axes at targets! Seems like a fantastic way to get out the heat, relieve some stress, spend time with friends, and maybe even get a little exercise. You can check them out on Facebook, and you are able to book reservations online.

Other great ways to beat the heat in the area include bingos, paint parties, quizzos and more. There are plenty of opportunities around to grab a drink and a friend and have a little indoor fun.

If you like being outside, but not in a let’s-go-for-a-hike kind of way, then downtown Williamsport is once again the place to be. There are plenty of bands playing outside in Pine Square a couple of days a week to keep you entertained.

If you do like being outside in a let’s-go-for-a-hike kind of way, there is lots of that to do too. Jacoby Falls, Ricketts Glen, Rider Park and more. There is also plenty of fishing to be found in the river, creeks, ponds, and lakes nearby.

Let’s not forget that the longer the kiddos are out of school, the more they want to be entertained. Reptiland, the Little League Museum, Kaos Fun Zone, Treasure Castle Playland and the Taber Museum are all great ways to get out of the heat and keep the kids entertained. Also, consider taking a ride on the Hiawatha! It’s a great way to get out of the house, and it’s always a little cooler on the river. And if the weather doesn’t cooperate and you just want to hang out inside, there is nothing better than staying with the classics: checkers, cards, and board games. Or ride out bad weather with a family movie. Now is a great time to re-visit the Toy Story franchise before checking out the newest movie.

If you want a little culture, be sure to check out the Community Theater League or the Community Arts Center.

The CTL is doing a production of “West Side Story” that opens next week and in August will be featuring “Mary Poppins Jr.” and Willy Wonka Jr.”

At the CAC, look for the upcoming Summer Stock production of “Newsies.” This is an all-student production featuring kids from all over the area. Webb Weekly is a proud sponsor of this show, and we will have more coming up in the near future for sure!

As you can see, there is plenty to do to fill your long summer days this year! Be sure to get out and enjoy all the area has to offer!
