Longer days = even more time to be outside! Whether you’re hiking, fly fishing, or even just laying out by the pool, we’ve got you covered with places like Shades and Orvis!

We talked to a few people around the Rowe and on social media about getting outside this summer! Here’s what they had to say.

I’m a history teacher so I spend a lot of time at the Rowe during the summer, mostly at Barnes & Noble, the movies, and the restaurants.  I love being outside, but I’m also a huge music/karaoke junkie and a big ol’ nerd. Also, Geaux Tigahs!
