There are a hundred and one activities the whole family can enjoy this summer. If you love outdoor activities, you can go camping, biking, swimming, wall climbing, or fishing. Nature tripping is a good time for bonding and re-connecting with family members especially if both parents are busy working everyday. If your kids are old enough to ride a bike, you can go biking with them. La Mesa Eco Park in Quezon City is the only place I know where you can enjoy the beauty and bounty of nature without leaving the city. If you prefer biking with the kids, you can go straight to La Mesa Eco Park with your bike. But it’s convenient if you have a vehicle with thule bike rack. There are bike rentals if you don’t want to bring your bike. Outdoor activities are rewarding in terms of creating memories with your loved ones and beneficial to ones health. Biking is one of the best stress-relievers and best way to stay healthy if I may add.
