This is the perfect day for young families to get out and enjoy an easy and fun day together. We will start our day at Ha Ha Tonka State Park, which some say it translates as “laughing waters” - cannot get better than that, right? We will do a short hike that will lead us to the Castle Ruins and the water tower. The ruins sit on top of a hill with amazing views; here, we will have lunch and enjoy the many sounds of nature.

To end the perfect summer day, we will have some ice cream of our way back home. Come back rejuvenated after spending a great day outside!
