Making the End of Summer Count

It’s almost the end of July, but that doesn’t mean summer is over — just yet! You still have time to check-off those last few items on your summer bucket list — while sticking to a budget, of course.

Let’s talk about water! Texas heat – by the time July and August roll around, if you’re going outside, it better involve water.

Hit the beach! Texas is known for multiple things, but don’t forget we also have wonderful beaches. There are beautiful beaches located along the Texas coast with over 600 miles of shoreline — isn’t that amazing! We have Corpus Christi, South Padre Island, Galveston, Mustang Island and Sea Rim State Park.

Go swimming in natural “water parks.” Don’t feel like driving to the beach? How about trying out the natural water park! No concrete pools and no water slides, just the beauty of nature.

Fishing and picnicking. Texas has a lot of rivers, creeks, streams, ponds, lakes, bays, bayous, and inlets (woow that is a long list) to let you fish. You can set up a little picnic area near your fishing rod, so you can enjoy food and the great scenery, while you’re waiting for the bite.

Scream at the water park. If your family is more into the thrill of rides, then hop on over to the water park near you. You can swim, eat, and enjoy the water rides – all in one! Fort Worth Community Credit Union offers discount tickets for theme parks and waterparks so don’t forget to check that out. You can also check your local city website for local area pools and splash pads.

These are just a few ways to get your worth on this summer and enjoy it with your family and friends. But most importantly, remember to laugh, smile and enjoy the company of your love ones.
