For all those who say, "There's nothing to do in Troy."

11 Things to Do in Troy, AL

I hear it everyday: "There's nothing to do in Troy." Honestly, I've said it too. But, there are so many fun ways to spend a day! Here are a few of my favorites:

1. Pike County Lake

Pike County lake has been newly restored and is open to the public. It is the perfect place to spend the day fishing, boating, or picnicking with family and friends! Grab your picnic basket, fishing pole, and your eno to spend a fun day in the great outdoors of Alabama!

2. Camp Butter and Egg

Zip lining, laser tag, canoeing, rock walls... no room for boring here!

Swimming pools, indoor and out! There are lots of options at the Rec Center. And there is even a gym... for those of you who are... in to that kind of stuff...

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
