Hopefully, Mother Nature has made up her mind and we are done with the snow until December. That means, sunshine and fun for the Tri-States, and I am always looking for both when trying to find things to do with my girls. See Quincy, has put together a great list of some of the best family friendly places to visit this spring and summer.

There's so much to do at this park. See the wetlands, there are nature summer programs, and shore fishing.
Two words, APPLE SLUSHIES! Located at 1628 Edgewood Orchard Lane, Edgewood is known for their fresh apples, pies, and other homemade goodies. Oh, did I mention apple slushies.
