Seven Things to Do in the Tri-State on Memorial Day Weekend [Evansville, Henderson, Newburgh and Owensboro]
Last night, I started going through my three-day Memorial Day weekend bucket list with my daughter. I want to squeeze in as many activities as I can into our short break/long weekend. Here's what's on my hot sheet:
Expose the kids to some Old School, a classic Pop Rock / R & B / Motown / Funk cover band that plays all the stuff you grew up listening to in the 70s and 80s. Or out of Ashville, NC, “The Fritz” is a five piece rock band that likes to get funky! Carefully weaving the band’s personality into each song, the band sets tonight to music and promises to fire up the Party Pier crowd.
With temps in the 70s and 80s this weekend, I thought I'd take my girl for a nature hike. I couldn't do anything too hard since she's still little so I researched alltrails.com and found one that was only a couple miles.
The Holiday Drive-In, located 3 miles West of Rockport at the Jct. of 161 & 66 in Reo IN., is open every night but I think we'll hit this Saturday night since it's supposed to be warm and not raining. We grab a bucket of fried chicken, some pillows and blankets and head out.
With breathtaking landscapes, a museum and nature center and some fun stuff for the kids, this place is a great place to picnic after church on a Sunday. There's also trails if you aren't too tuckered out from the night before. There's also lodging if you want to give the kids a camping experience.
Florence Freedom v the Otters starts at 5:05 PM. Family fun for a reasonable price! And, who doesn't love a ballgame?
