Don’t waste the weather—summer is the season for beautiful sunny days spent outside! Here at Crooked Oaks, there are so many ways to take advantage of the warm weather—and they’re anything but boring. The blue summer sky is your limit! Need a little inspiration? Here are just some of the ways to enjoy the outdoors at Crooked Oaks this season.
Sit by the water.
Grab your fishing pole and head to the creek for your catch of the day! If fishing isn’t your thing, search for tadpoles or do some birdwatching. Or, keep it simple by sitting back, relaxing, and enjoying the company of nature.
See Coach Pat Dye’s waterfall.
Coach Dye has left a truly special mark on Crooked Oaks. He loved our beautiful farm, and even took time to make it lovelier. Years ago, he and a few others actually created the waterfalls you can see today. Go out and explore!
There are plenty of ways to keep your body moving during your time at Crooked Oaks. You can take a walk and explore the property, but don’t forget to stay hydrated! You should also wear sunscreen and sunglasses. If you’re feeling some friendly competition, start a cornhole tournament on the back patio of the lodge. There are also plenty of spaces to throw the football or even enjoy some outdoor yoga!
Relax and recharge.
Sometimes, one of the best ways to enjoy the outdoors at Crooked Oaks this season is by doing nothing at all. Our farm is the perfect place to unwind and relax. You can sit on the patio in a rocking chair and take in the scenery, or soak up the sun for a while.
Plan a staycation
You don’t have to leave! You can always spend the night—or the weekend—at Crooked Oaks with a little staycation.
Make it a dinner date.
Once it cools off, you and your special someone can eat a sunset dinner on our gorgeous property. Then, you can take a romantic stroll. Finally, stargazing could be the perfect finale for your date!
