It’s finally time for those long dog days of summer! You don’t need a fancy vacation to have fun this summer or to entertain your kids. We’ve rounded up 6 fun things to do this summer that are right here in Placer County.


iFly Indoor Skydiving

Do you have an adventure-seeking child? Or perhaps you are a thrill-seeking parent and want to do something out of the ordinary with your little one this summer.  iFly Sacramento is now open in Roseville. Little ones as young as three can do an indoor skydiving jump and feel the rush! After taking the jump, we’re sure you’ll be ready for whatever summer brings your way.

Dave and Buster’s Half-Off Wednesdays

Beat the heat and have some indoor play at Dave and Buster’s. Every Wednesday they offer half-off all games for the entire day. Their arcade includes games suitable for all ages, from kids to adults, so you can bring the whole family to play, eat and have some fun together in this arcade-style restaurant.

Swim Lessons at Sea Otter

It wouldn’t be summer without swimming! Sign your child up for a weekly swim lesson or get them into one of our sessions. They will learn important swim and water safety skills that they can use throughout the summer and all year long. Swim lessons start at 4 months old and go through adults. Whether you want to work on water safety, refine stroke technique, or are fearful of the water, we can help!
