Staying home as much as possible in July is the key for a smoother school reopening for all our local school systems this Fall. It’s also a great reason to mask up if you do choose to go out. For real. That said, we’ve listed some of our favorite things for families to do this weekend below that are socially-distant, cost-efficient, and fun.
