Ways to Spend More Time Outside with Your Family

With the cooler weather of fall upon us, it’s a great time to get outside and enjoy Cotati’s moderate temperatures. Need some ideas? Check out our list of ways to spend more time with your partner and kids.

1. Hit the Hot Tub

Fall is a great time to schedule regular dips with the family. Now that the heat of August is a thing of the past, the heated waters of your spa are a great way to spend some much-needed family time. It’s an ideal way to catch up on the events of each other’s days while allowing the heated water and jet massage to melt away the stress of the day. If you’re not in the mood for chatting, you can still keep the kids amused by playing some games. Younger kids love , ‘I Spy,’ or ‘Who am I?’ If you have teenagers, suggest they put together a playlist for your family spa time.

2. Go For a Hike

There’s no better place to combine exercise with family time than on the hiking trail. Hiking is a fun activity for the whole family. It gets you outside in the fresh air and sunshine and away from distractions like e-mails, text messages and social media. If you need some help finding walking and hiking trails, this list offers tons of great options.

3. Go For a Picnic

Fall weekends are a great time to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. Rather than hanging out at home, why not pack a picnic and hit one of the area parks? Helen Putnam Park is a great place for a family picnic. Afterward your children can play on the grass or in the playground. If your kids are a bit older, take along a football or a baseball and some ball gloves and play catch.

4. Go For a Bike Ride

Now that summer’s heat is a thing of the past, it’s an ideal time to schedule a cycling trip. Head outside the city and enjoy a leisurely bike ride in the country or hit up one of the cycling trails. There are a variety of bike paths worth trying in Rohnert Park.

5. Go to the Beach

Just because summer’s over doesn’t mean you can’t have a beach day. A windy day is great for kite flying and Frisbee throwing. Even if there’s not enough wind for kite flying, you can build a sand castle, play tic tac toe in the sand or take a walk. Pack lots of snacks and drinks, some blankets for lounging on and enjoy an afternoon together in the sunshine.
