Explore the past! This is a favorite of ours, but I’m sure you know that by now! We always encourage a historical visit every now and then. A trip to a museum or historic site will encourage some learning, in a sneaky way! Their little minds will be absorbing new information without even realizing it! Try the Independent Telecommunications Pioneer Association (ITPA) museum in Hinesville for your own amusement. You can take a trip down memory lane, and the rascals will love seeing the “ancient” telephones. Afterwards, take a walk around Bryant Commons or throw a Frisbee! Or head east towards the coastline to explore the many different museums and historic sites found there such as Fort Morris Historic Site, the Midway Museum, Dorchester Academy and Geechee Kunda Cultural Center!
Hit the arcade! What better way to enjoy summer break with your kids than bringing out the inner kid in you?! If you’re in town head over to Fang’s Island for delicious food options and a friendly game of air hockey or skeeball. Midway’s newest restaurant, Melody’s Coastal Café, is serving up fresh dishes and has an arcade that’s sure to be fun for the whole family!
