Jump in a Lake

So I happen to notice today while sharing some information on Twitter, that one of the trending topics was “My Life Could Use More”. This really struck me as interesting. We ALL want more of something. Some are things within our control, some are not. In looking at the answers people were putting down, I noticed that many people want more time…more time with family and friends, to do things to make yourself happy.

This is something I think we can all relate to. And summertime is the BEST time to make some more memories with friends and family, and get outside and enjoy yourself! Here are a few of our favorite outdoor things to do during our beautiful Durham summer:

Hiking, Biking and More: Durham Trails
