The Perfect Sunday

Sundays are laid back. Families and couples start their days off with church and brunch. Ladies and gents get beauty treatments at luxury spas and salons. Moms with toddlers play in the shaded, padded playgrounds of Reverchon Park, while couples enjoy picnics. Friends play softball, basketball, and Frisbee. Reverchon feels like a natural getaway from the city. Robert E. Lee Park is a more sculpted park and is a popular place for joggers. Dragon Park feels more like a small garden, and lives up to its name with fantastic statues and it's a quiet location for reading a book.
