Sun, is that you? If you’re anything like us, you’ve been basking in the glow of that bright shining ball of light in the sky the past few days.

  • Take a walk or hike at a local park.
  • Get some fresh air with your fur baby.
  • While you might still need a jacket, get epic skyline views at the rooftop bar, Lost Palm.
  • Meet new friends with a local running group.
  • Get your steps in while checking out dozens of murals around town.
