As summertime approaches, many families find themselves asking that question. With so many great things to do in our Community and surrounding areas, you don’t have to go very far to enjoy a summer filled with fun and adventure. Here are a few family favorites and some forgotten treasures that are pretty close to home for a great day trip.

PRISTINE BEACHES

Located right in our backyard, the Tampa Bay area is home to many of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Clearwater Beach and Pass-a-Grille Beach in St. Petersburg are just a few of the local favorites, however if you’re looking for something on the road less traveled, check out Fort Desoto Park, Sand Key or Honeymoon Island. If you’d like to bring Fido along, here are a few dog-friendly beaches in the area: Picnic Island Beach Dog Park, Davis Islands Dog Park and Beach, Fort De Soto Park Dog Beach and Park, and Honeymoon Island State Park.

RIVER ADVENTURES

Rent a canoe or kayak down any of the beautiful rivers in our area including the Hillsborough River, Alafia River and Withlacoochee River.

SUNKEN GARDENS

Sunken Gardens is a botanical paradise in the midst of a bustling city. As St. Petersburg's oldest living museum, this 100-year-old garden is home to some of the oldest tropical plants in the region. Explore cascading waterfalls, beautiful demonstration gardens, more than 50,000 tropical plants, and flowers. (727) 551-3102

WEEKI WACHEE SPRINGS STATE PARK

Enjoy swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and more in the crystal clear spring waters of Weeki Wachee. After a scheduled renovation, the mermaid shows, river boat rides and wildlife programs are scheduled to reopen June 15th, just in time for summer fun. www.weekiwachee.com

SCALLOPING SEASON

The season kicks into high gear this summer! Harvesting is done about 2-3 miles from shore in the gulf, and they can be found almost anywhere Eelgrass is located. Call it an Easter Egg Hunt Florida-style. Every summer, the star of the sea is the delectable Bay Scallop of the warm shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It’s a fun family-friendly underwater adventure and all you need is a mask, snorkel and flippers and one exceptional charter captain. Levy, Citrus and Hernando counties (including Cedar Key, Crystal River and Homosassa): July 1 through Sept. 24. Pasco County: July 19-28. www.myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/ recreational/bay-scallops LIFESTYLES at GRAND HAMPTON | JUNE 2019


Lawn &

Garden

JUNE Plantings & Lawn Maintenance Plan to beautify your landscape with these tips for what to plant in JUNE and lawn maintenance measures!

What to Plant

Annuals: Annuals that can take full sun during the increasingly hot summer months include celosia, portulaca, vinca, and some coleus. Palms: Summer's warm, rainy months are the perfect time to plant palms. Make sure not to cover the trunk with soil. Herbs: Plant heat-loving herbs, including basil, ginger, summer savory, cumin, Mexican tarragon, and rosemary. Vegetables: Plant tropical vegetables, such as boniato, calabaza, and chayote this month.

What to Do

Pests: Monitor the landscape and garden weekly for harmful insects. Knowing which insects attack a plant can aid in identification and treatment. Irrigation: Watch for drought stress and water as needed if rainfall has been spotty. Focus on new plantings and follow watering restrictions. When rains begin, shut down the irrigation system. Pruning: Lightly prune summer-flowering shrubs, like hibiscus, oleander, and ixora, during the warmer months to increase blooming. Lawns: Check frequently for damaged areas and keep insects in check with early treatment. Determine whether yellow and brown lawn patches are caused by chinch bugs, disease, or lack of water. Take time to determine the cause so your remedy is effective. Rejuvenate areas where grass does not grow well by replacing it with versatile groundcovers. Lightning safety: Be safe outdoors during storm season.
