Massanutten for the 4th Of July
Have you ever stepped outside early in the morning and just felt the peacefulness descend upon you like a royal cape? The sounds of birds greeting the morning with cheerful songs, the feel of cool morning air kissing your cheeks, and the quiet that touches your soul? If not, your summer journey to Massanutten is the perfect time to experience it all, and even as vacations are about being lazy and sleeping in late, at least one day of your excursion should involve a sunrise start, sitting out on the deck watching the sky transform from the inky blackness of night to the clear blue beauty of a sunny day. The quiet that reverberates in your heart will give you the inner strength to deal with the more raucous adventures and the serenity will be something you treasure, tucking away deep in your mind to be revisited during times of stress during real life. After, of course, you can always slide back between the silky soft linens of the bed you have claimed for your own, slipping back into the sweet oblivion of sleep, before rising once again, this time feeling rested and ready for whatever delights Massanutten has to offer!
Summer temps in the Massanutten area rarely spike too high, but the humidity can put the curl in your hair and add a sultry glow to your skin. This is not a problem for travelers in the know, however, because nothing keeps you cooler than an all-American summer day spent at a waterpark! Massanutten Water Park, located at 1200 Adventure Drive, is actually an all-season waterpark featuring indoor AND outdoor activities guaranteed to make everyone in your traveling party happy to be alive! The indoor portion of the waterpark offers rapids and waterslides, hot springs and a surfing and body boarding section called the Pipeline and a Frog Pond for the tiniest of travelers! Parents can join in the fun by testing their daredevil skills on slides that climb 250 feet in the air or they can splash and play with their littles in the 12-inch deep Frog Pond that offers tyke-sized slides, sprinklers, and swings. The outdoor portion of Massanutten is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day (closing on poor weather days) and features a wave pool, thrilling slides, and another area designated for tiny tots; Splash a Nutten is a colorful zone filled with psychedelic-colored animals that serve as slides, sprinklers, and fun spots that your kids will never want to leave!
The Main Event
You have come all this way to celebrate America’s 246th birthday so of course you are seeking fireworks and Massanutten, as always, provides! Summer Jam 2022 is scheduled to be held on July 3rd, so even if you have to head back home early you can still enjoy the holiday festivities! Starting at 5 PM there will be live music, kid’s activities, and all the food you can eat! Food truck vendors will be serving cheesesteaks, Cajun Food, and kettle corn along with a variety of other delicious treats, and beer and wine will be flowing. The kids’ zones will offer corn hole, big Jenga, face and body painting and so many other fun and exciting activities your littles will never want to stop playing; until the sky lights up with the colorful explosions that have been the best part of Independence Day celebrations for decades, perhaps even centuries! This is probably one of the best events in Massanutten for the 4th of July!
