Moving into your new Rainey Homes abode promises to keep you on a short leash, at least for the first few months.
With boxes to unpack, children to settle in and new routines to learn, there isn’t a lot of wiggle room to get out and explore the new neighborhood.
But sooner or later, you’ll want to embrace this new place you’re calling home, and we’re here with a few low- and no-cost ways to test the waters that are as fun as they are family friendly.
- Begin with camera in hand and capture what makes your new community great. Hike into the mountains and capture some of Utah’s awesome landscapes. Take a side trip to the historic Mormon Temple. Get pictures of the kids enjoying an animal encounter at the local zoo. Gather the best shots in a snapshot gallery and give family back home a taste of your surroundings.
- Look for a good source of event listings and head out to a free concert, an opening exhibit or the activities scheduled at the local farmers market. Gather a picnic meal from the food you purchase and end the day at a favorite park.
- Find a place to volunteer. That might be a nearby soup kitchen, a local school or an animal shelter. Teach a senior how to text.
- Join a local church. Take a class. Learn a new hobby.
In other words, get out and about. It’s a great way to feel at home, inside and out.
