9 local attractions and fun things to while we are mowing your grass

Mowing your grass and caring for your lawn can take hours out of your week. As everyone already knows, summer is way too short as it is. Why shorten it even more by tackling your lawn care on your own? That’s where Sun Power Lawn Care comes in. Our dedicated team members are the area’s premier trained experts in lawn maintenance and renovation. We’ll take care of mowing the grass and trimming the hedges so that you have more free time to enjoy the summertime weather. And if you’re not sure what to do with all of those newfound extra hours, here are 9 local attractions and fun things to do while we are mowing your grass.

St. Augustine Beach

St. Augustine Beach is the perfect place to spend a day. With beautiful white sands and amazing ocean waves, it’s a great way to unwind after a long week at the office.

Naturally, part of the allure of going to the beach is the downtime. So when you get there, stretch out a towel on the sand, get some sun, play in the waves, or play a game of volleyball. This four miles of sandy coast located at the end of Anastasia Island has something for everyone!


Then again, maybe sand isn’t quite your thing but you love the water. We bet you can see where we’re going with this: fishing! If you’re an angler, we know what you’re thinking: “What could be better than spending an afternoon at your favorite fishing spot?” Not much, we’d imagine! 

While our technicians are mowing your grass, you’ll have the freedom and time to cast your line over and over. And of course, the more you fish the bigger and better the catch — giving you plenty of stories to share with your family and friends.

Now, if fishing isn’t your ideal pastime, keep reading for even more ideas.

Poe Springs


North Florida is well known for its abundance of natural springs. With over 300 in the area (you read that right!), one of them is sure to be a great way to spend the day. Swim, float, snorkel, and more in one of these natural wonders. 

Are you wondering where to get started? We recommend taking in the spring at Lafayette Blue Springs State Park and crossing the natural limestone bridge. Plus, you can stay in one of the cabins on-site or bring your bike and take in scenery such as the Spanish moss that hangs from massive oak trees.

Looking for another option? The shallow waters of Poe Springs make it ideal for families. It includes other amenities like picnic pavilions, a playground, and volleyball courts. 

For our snorkeling and scuba diving friends, Troy Springs State Park is a great destination with open water scuba diving in the utterly amazing 70-foot spring. Explore the history of the area, search for geocaches, canoe, and hike at this beautiful park. 


Here’s an idea everyone needs to experience at least once while we’re mowing your grass. Spend an afternoon with 80,000 of your closest friends as a part of Gator Nation. Cheer on the Gators as they take on their opponent at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium with the confidence that your lawn is being taken care of by our professional team.

Ice Skating in Jacksonville

“Wait, I thought you said this was for the summer months?”

Believe it or not, ice skating isn’t just for the winter! There’s a great place within our community where you can experience ice skating even in the middle of July and August! Head to Community First Igloo for a public skate. While there, you can also join a learn-to-skate class. It’s a great way to escape the heat outside while getting active with this activity. Bonus tip, take the whole family along for an afternoon of memories and fun!

Blueberry picking

Did you know that it’s currently blueberry season in Northern Florida? There’s just something about the taste of fresh fruit you’ve picked yourself that is so much sweeter than anything you can pick up at the store. 

At Bluefield Estate Winery you can pick berries and then beat the heat by relaxing and enjoying a refreshing drink or wine tasting. Red White and Blues Farm is another great family-friendly location. Plus, while there the kids can play on the swings and playhouse at the farm after picking their blueberries.  

The World Equestrian Center (WEC)

The calendar of events at the World Equestrian Center in Ocala is full of opportunities. Spend the afternoon watching the USEF Premier Hunters/Level 6 Jumpers, Citrus County Kennel Club All-Breed Dog Show, or the American Ranch Horse Association World Championship show, along with tons of other events and activities. If horses are your thing, this is something you won’t want to miss!

Kayaking or bird watching

Nature lovers have all sorts of options at their fingertips for summertime activities. Spend the day floating down the river in a canoe or kayak rented from Santa Fe Canoe Outpost in High Springs. They’ve even got SUP boards if you’re brave enough to try! 

Another nature-centered option to check out is bird watching at Sweet Water Wetlands. With over 125 acres of ponds and wetlands, you’re sure to see a large variety of birds and other wildlife as well as plants. Enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and check off the birds you spot on their handy printable checklist.

Take a hike

Our final item on today’s list of 9 local attractions and fun things to do while we are mowing your grass will take you deep into the forest. Of course, we’re referring to taking a hike at Ocala National Forest. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced backpacker, there’s a trail for you here. 

Or maybe, you want to go off the designated path? That’s fine too, just be sure you have a paper map and compass in case you get lost!
