It’s time to enjoy the great outdoors! On your next timeshare rental lace up your hiking boots and head out onto one of these day hike trails:

1. Angel Rocks: This trail is family-friendly! It’s a 3.5-mile roundtrip hike in the Chena River Recreation Area near Fairbanks, AK. Since summer offers extended hours you can get in a loop late in the day. Locals will tell you that the animals in the area come alive at night too.

2. Brewster Mudflats: Bring a pail, put on water shoes, and hike out to the mud flats near the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster, MA. This hike is not like other hikes you’ve been on. Prepare to get muddy. Kids love this hike!
