With all the pools and beaches closed and fairs, events, and sports leagues canceled, you might need to get a little creative this summer. It is possible to have fun this summer. Here are a few things we talked about on the Dunken and Samm show that you should totally add to your to-do list.

1. Scoot-scoot!!

The scooters are back in town. The Rochester City Council approved the return of Limes Monday evening. We will start with 200 scooters and 25 e-bikes around town at first and could have as many as 300 scooters and 50 e-bikes later this summer. Yay.

2. Pizza and live music from your car.

Berne Wood Fired Pizza is now open for the summer. In years past, you could sit on their beautiful property while enjoying a delicious wood-fired pizza and taking in kick-butt live music. This year is a tad different, but still worth doing. Sit in your comfy, air-conditioned car with pizza in hand, and you can even tune your radio to hear the live music on your speakers.

3. Live like a celebrity

At least you can pretend you live in luxury for a few days... if you can afford it. For $21,000, you can rent a stunning lake mansion for a week. It sits on 4 acres of land and is just 10 minutes from downtown Minneapolis. The massive home has room for 10 guests with 4 bedrooms (7 beds) and 3.5 baths. Plus, a three-season porch with a bar and grill, a sunroom, and an amazing firepit.
