Weekend Getaway

Weekend Getaway

Ahhh, Saturday and Sunday. The most coveted days of the week. We spend most of our time wishing they would come sooner and the rest reminiscing on the memories that we made while they were here. Weekends allow us the much-needed opportunity to recharge, discover a tasty, fresh cuisine, and ample time to spend the day leisurely walking new streets and having unique experiences with the people we love.

  

Water Sport Adventures

 

Jimco’s Riverside Pizza & Kayaking 

Kayaking and pizza? My two favorite things combined. Enjoy a day of kayak drifting down the Great Miami River on either a non-guided or guided tour by the river enthusiast himself, Jim! Reward your newfound kayak arm muscles with a round of cold brews and freshly baked pizza at Jimco’s restaurant in Middletown.

 

Wake Nation

Wake Nation’s motto, “No boat? no problem!” rings true in their water bay in Fairfield. Wake boarders are pulled by a large, overhead cable. All riding levels are welcomed! If you’re a beginner, you can start off slow with practice speeds. And if you’re a more seasoned rider, there are plenty of jumps to put your skills to the test.

Korealistic

It’s packed with stir fry veggies, your choice of meat, and a sunny side up egg atop the mountain of greatness.
