Summer adventures: Part 1

Thursday, June 9, 2011

Summer is the time to relax, hang out with friends and family, and have fun adventures to tell about when school starts up again in August. You don't have to leave Southeast Missouri to find adventure this summer. If you're yearning for adventure or looking for fun places to relax with friends while staying in the area, we've got you covered. Check this spot and check something off your summer bucket list every other week without having to stray too far from home, with tips from Mia Pohlman.

Create a new sno cone flavor combination

Cool off on a hot summer day with Hawaiian shaved ice at Ty's Summer Sno on Main Street in Jackson or on William Street in Cape Girardeau. Can't decide which of the 70 flavors to choose? Owner Tyson Zahner has some recommendations. "I like the birthday cake, French vanilla, wedding cake and strawberry sweetart flavors, and the classic flavors are always popular, too," Zahner said. Both locations are open seven days a week. The Jackson location is open from noon to 10 p.m.; the Cape Girardeau location is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Prices range from $2 to $7, depending on size.
