In the words of the Godfather of Soul, "Get On Up!" and get active this year.

Skip the crowds of new year's resolution-ers at the gym and head out to explore and have some fun.

Bird Watching & Walking

Head outside and walk the boardwalks and trails at Phinizy Swamp Nature Park. Keep an eye out for a few of our friendly local critters along the way! Phinizy hosts year-round events like outdoor yoga, guided hikes and camping for those looking to try something different in 2017.
