Staycations are all the rage at the moment, and fortunately the Valley is the perfect place to have one. Try taking a fly-fishing trip or a bike ride on one of our rail trails. If gas prices are keeping sports fans away from baseball in the city, you can root for one of our two homegrown teams. And of course, we can’t have summer without beaches and water parks to cool us off.
So pile your friends and family in the car, and get going!
