Spring is here to stay this week in McKinney, TX. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and plants are starting to bloom here at Craig Ranch. With the weather warming up, it’s time to shed your winter coat and get outside. Here are a few fun ways you and your family can enjoy the season outside in McKinney, TX:
Craig Ranch is truly “unique by nature.” Our master-planned community is full of parks, trails and greenspaces to make outdoor activities a breeze. One of our resident’s favorite spots to take a bike ride is at Rowlett Creek Park. This secluded hideaway spot has over 30 acres of trees, flowers and trails along the white rock Rowlett Creek, making the views almost as fun as the ride itself! Craig Ranch also hasa fitness trail that runs for 20 miles, which is ideal for hiking and biking in this gorgeous spring weather. This fitness trail is one of a kind as its part of a six-city trail that is cleverly wound through DFW’s metroplex.
Eat and drink in the season
One of the most exciting things about a new season beginning is the opportunity to incorporate seasonal foods in you and your family’s diet. Visit the local farmer’s market for fresh sugar snap peas, asparagus or even go berry picking just a short drive away in Denton County. If you don’t feel like driving, consider taking your food to the backyard. Grill out with your kids and then have a family meal on your patio furniture soaking in the sun.
Get in the dirt
If you’re a parent, you know kids love to get dirty. Spring is the perfect opportunity to be a little lax with their fun outdoors. Go exploring with a hunt for four-leaf clovers or have them help you plant seasonal plants in the garden. Of course, don’t forget jumping in rain puddles!
These are just some of the many outdoor spring activities you can participate in at Craig Ranch! Leave us a comment on Facebook (link) with some of your favorites, and don’t forget our Easter Egg-Stravaganza is Saturday, April 4th at the Craig Ranch Soccer Complex.
