Btown Summer Hot Spots: Griffy Lake

If you're in Bloomington for the summer, or even at the beginning or end of the school year, there are a million different things you can do in the hot weather. I'm just going to give you one example of a really fun, inexpensive activity you can do close to IU: canoeing at Griffy Lake.

Griffy Lake

Canoeing at Griffy is cheap and really fun! I went a few weeks ago during a summer visit to Bloomington. It's only a maximum of ten minutes away from campus, and it's a blast! It was my first time canoeing, and I absolutely loved it. Each canoe can fit up to 3 people and is only $7 an hour (so split between 3 people, that's only $2.33 each!). There are also hiking trails, and neither entering the area or parking costs anything extra.
