Spring Fever

Spring break is over, the weather is gorgeous, and we are counting down the days until Summer. I thought I would share some of the budget-friendly activities my family likes to do in our great area…

  • The Memphis Zoo– Memphis has one of the best and biggest zoos in the country!

There are plenty of options for ways to get out and enjoy the weather. I hope these few suggestions have helped you plan ways to get outdoors this weekend! Remember, it’s only going to get hotter!
