All Ages View

This summer was absolutely ridiculous! Thanks to all who made it so great.
Let’s start this school year with a bang! As you may know, one of the best lakes in the world is only a two hour drive from Motown. Pinecrest Lake! I went about 4 times this summer and I’m planning on going back soon. There are so many different things that you can do at the Lake. You can start your morning on a beautiful hike around the lake or a longer hike to Cleo’s Bath. My whole family of all ages hiked the lake; it’s not a very difficult venture. After that, you can relax on the beach or go for a boat ride on the lake. There are some quiet coves that you can hang out at towards the back of the lake. There are some awesome rocks to jump off of just past the dam. Next to the parking lot/general store area, there is a snack shack that sells amazing root beer floats and burgers. It should be on your to-do list when you go. Later that night, you can relax and watch a movie under the stars. Pinecrest Amphitheater shows movies that are still in theaters like Inside Out and Max! Check out the dates of certain movies to plan your trip around it at Pinecrest is an absolutely wonderful place to be and you will notice that tons of Modesto people go there. Every single time I go, I run into old friends. So, I hope to see you up there before school starts or around Modesto in the near future! Much Love!!
