Maybe your spouse wants to try paddleboarding. Have different categories or price ranges, so on Tuesday night, you can pick a stick and plan on doing that for the upcoming weekend. The.

9. “If you live by a Six Flags theme park the season pass is a good value. Around $65 for adults, it pays for itself in 2 visits. You can leave the park and come back in, allowing you to eat a lunch stashed in a cooler in the car to save money on food. They’re required serve ice water for free inside the park for beverages on the cheap. They don’t let you bring loose items onto the rides. I always wear sneakers, otherwise depending on the ride you’ll need to sit on your flip flops. Or have the option to pay for a locker for your stuff or leave a person behind to hold it. Its easiest to have as little stuff on you as possible.”

Scavenger hunts are where normal riddles clues take the kids to an object, then they find the next clue, which leads to another object (prize at the last object). Photo scavenger hunts are more for teams, but are fun and crazy photo challenges for teams to complete.”
