There’s no better way to soak up the summer sun than by getting outside! If going for a hike or a whitewater raft isn’t your style, you’ve still got options to enjoy the beautiful warm weather.
Hit the links for a round of golf, lace up your tennis shoes, or put your hand/eye coordination to the test with a game of pickleball. (Never played pickleball? There’s no time like a LivCo adventure to try something new!)
