The May 2-4 long weekend is coming up quick, and we want you to be prepared for some serious family fun –  at all hours of the day! Dedicated weekend warriors know that no hours are left to boredom. Brunch in the morning, we go wakeboarding, tubing and waterskiing all day, and we sit around crackling campfires at night. But what about that awkward twilight hour around dusk when the bugs are fierce, you’re wiped from being on the water and in the sun all day and it’s still just a little too bright for a campfire? One thing’s for sure – it’s been an awesome day on the lake. Now make it an awesome night and play some fun, classic board games!

If we all thought about it, we’re positive you could remember a hilarious board game memory where Dad did something ridiculous and Mom shook her head in disbelief. We can, and we look forward to this family time every cottage trip. This is why we collected the our ‘Top 6 Board Games’ for you to play! Buckle up, grab the snacks and gather round the dining room table – it’s game time.

Monopoly
