Thursday, June 6th, 2013
This Saturday is National Get Outdoors Day. The great thing about living at Lexington Heights is that there are a lot of outdoor places to play that are close to home. Check out some of the ideas below to find a way you can join in the National Get Outdoors Day festivities.
Canoe or Kayak or Hike
Minnesota’s 76 state parks and recreation areas are all offering free admission this day, and many of them have planned special activities to introduce you to the fun of geocaching, kayaking, camping, and other family-friendly activities.
