101 Things To Do This Summer in Iowa
Time Out NY compiled an awesome list of NYC summer activities (they've re-opened Governor's Island on weekends!). It was such a great collection, I thought we should not only come up with our own list, but maybe also scour their summer to see what ideas we can steal to do here. I'm sure Chicago has a similar summer planned (it's the ultimate land of free weekend festivals + entertainment). Not that Des Moines doesn't seem to have an activity/day, but sometimes hard to know what's happening - you almost need to get every rag out there to get a decent idea of what's going on in our not-so-big town.
Use the comment section below to add your own ideas for summer fun - it doesn't have to be an event - think about activities, too. Also, not everything has to be kid-friendly, either. I know summer's for the kids, but sometimes an outdoor tequila-fueled dance party's just the ticket. /cj
