In honor of National Picnic Day and our Yeti Cooler Contest we thought we’d help you plan for a fantastic afternoon in Spring. Take a break from your daily grind and have a picnic this week for dinner with the family! We’ve gone to the painful trouble of researching picnicking in Liberty County for you, and have mapped out our results into 4 simple steps. Follow these steps for a fool proof way to have the perfect picnic.
Step 1. Invite your Guests
Who are you going to share your fun filled picnic with? Will your gal pals be joining you for a ladies’ night treat? Or will you text your buddies for a picnic on the dock, have a good supper then finish off the night fishing? You might want to ditch the meatloaf and dining table and take along the family for a break from the expected. Whoever you choose, a picnic is much better with guests!
Step 2. Plan your menu.
This is one of the more important steps involved with picnic planning: What do you want to eat! You might opt for fresh produce, and locally made sausage from the Hinesville Farmers Market for mason jar salads. Another route might be to pick up your favorite dinner from Smokin’ Pig or Izola’s to stuff your cooler or basket. Make it a dessert only picnic and snag a few brownies and some cake from Southern Sweets, the ladies’ will love that idea!
Step 3. Pack your supplies
Now that you know what you’ll be eating, you need to get it all packed! Load your truck up with some essentials like a quilt big enough for dining, some cutlery and dishes you won’t mind taking outside (can anyone say paper plates!) and of course your cooler full of supper! Don’t forget the bug spray, and maybe even some sunscreen. Have a little fun and bring a deck of cards of a board game, it’s a great way to unplug from the world.
Step 4. Hit the road.
Now that you have your dinner, your guests and your supplies it’s time to plan your destination. This is probably the most important part of your picnic! For the families out there, the Liberty County Recreation Department has multiple locations throughout the county that you can picnic and play on the playground. For those fellas who might enjoy fishing while they eat, hit up some of our favorite fishing spots around Liberty County. And Bryant Commons would be a perfect stop for a group of ladies to have picnic dinner after getting a well-deserved mani/pedi in Hinesville.
Whether you decide to have a girls’ night out or a family friendly dinner, we’re sure you’ll have a memorable experience picnicking in Liberty County! We can’t wait to hear what picnics you plan to go on with you Yeti Cooler!
