Sample a variety of cafes. Instead of just staying at one restaurant, have dinner at one place and dessert at another. Try to find places within walking distance, this way you can enjoy the scenery.

Head to the zoo. The zoo can be quite a fascinating place. Check out everything from pengiuns to gorillas. If you’re more of an aquatic fan, check out your nearest aquarium.

Up for peanuts! A summer ball game is always fun, whether it’s major league or little league.
