As the season begins to wind down, make the most of those scorching hot days and savor the final days of summer. Here is a list of "hot" end-of-summer activities to help you sizzle up your summer.


Beach Bonanza

Don’t let summer slip away without a visit to the beach! Grab your swimsuit, sunscreen, and a good book as you soak up the sun at Fireman’s Park Beach. This hidden gem has a fun slide, splash pad, trails and more. 


Heat Things Up with Hot Yoga

Check out the brand new Dragonfly Hot Yoga at Market 5 on Verona’s West End. With over 20 different classes available, you are sure to find something to get your blood pumping!


Beat the Heat with a Paddle

August is prime time to hit the Sugar River with Sugar River Outfitters. Choose a canoe or kayak for a relaxing 3 hour paddle from Verona to Paoli. Make sure to leave enough time to enjoy a beverage at the Hop Garden, some ice cream or a treat at one of the great spots on the river where you end your adventure in Paoli.


Summer Concerts

There is still a chance to catch some great outdoor music in August! Verona’s Music on Main Street has shows 8/4 and 8/18 and you’ll find live music every weekend at Wisconsin Brewing Co, the Hop Garden in Paoli and Bailey’s Run Winery in New Glarus. 


Backyard Barbecues

Fire up the grill, grab some snacks, and invite some friends. Set up lawn games like cornhole, badminton, or volleyball to keep everyone entertained. Check out catering options from North & South or Festival Foods to make it super simple.


Spa Day

Chill out at the new Roses & Hope on Main Street by either try a rejuvenating service or pick up some supplies to pamper yourself at home. Maybe a fresh cut and color from Ecco Salon or a pedicure at Lavish is just what you need to re-energize.


Farmer's Market Fun

Take advantage of the abundance of fresh produce available during the end of summer and stop by the Verona Downtown Farmer’s Market. You’ll find lots of great local goods plus music and food trucks. The super popular Fairy Fair takes place at the market on 8/9 where you’ll find the regular market PLUS face-painting, crafts and more!


Don't let August slip away without adding some hot and exciting activities to your calendar. Whether you prefer soaking up the sun at the beach, enjoying live music, or gathering with friends and family, make the most of the final days of summer!
