5 Ways to Laze Away the Last Days of Summer

Summer calls for laziness.  Sunny days, wonderful weather, no school, sleeping in, taking trips. That is what summer is all about!  But, it also goes by so quickly and as the end of the season comes to a close and back to school responsibilities start to fill up our calendars with to-do’s it is best to get in the most lazy days you can before we greet this wonderful season yet again.

1. SeaVenture Beach Experience

Leave all the work and heavy lifting to us!  Just arrive at the beach with your bathing suit, a cold beverage, a snack or two and your sunscreen!  Choose from a simple umbrella, two reclining chairs with footrests and towels or a full pop up outfitted with all the essentials for four.  Watch the world go by, listen to the waves, catch some rays and make your beach day as lazy as you would like it to be.   More Information:

2. Float on the Lazy River

Enjoy yourself on your own personal inner tube as you take yourself on a winding sun-drenched journey of the Ravine Water Park’s lazy river.  Wave to friends on loungers, keep cool in the summer heat and only end your trip when you want to!  Enjoy the other attractions the Paso Robles water park has to offer such as the wave pool and slides.  We just find this one to be the best in reaching the highest marks on the lazy scale!
