Beaver Dam Swimming Club

5

It’s a freshwater quarry and a fun, family friendly location to visit during the summer months in Maryland.

This old rock quarry is a great place to spend the day swimming and playing sports. There’s a couple of basketball and volleyball courts along the waterfront and even a regular pool for the kiddos that are not expert swimmers yet since the quarry gets more than 50 feet deep. The best thing about this place is the famous rope swing that’s about 10 feet above the water and everyone uses to jump in! I was actually here on a company picnic and they reserved part of the park, fired up some grills, and provided hamburgers and hot dogs for everyone. It’s a great place to relax in the summer!

    Summer Hot Spots: Escaping the Heat at Cameron Highlands

    It’s normal during summer to be out there at the beach, sunbathing and getting yourself a nice tan, but in Malaysia, it could get pretty hot this time of the year. With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.
