Time is precious — and after gaining an hour after daylight saving time this weekend, we’re looking for even more ways to use the time we have. Try these six activities to make the most of 60 extra minutes in Swan City.

Get sporty

Book a bay at The Back Nine to play simulated golf and other sports, or try axe throwing at Ax-Caliber. Both offer delicious eats and reservations for as little as one hour.

Pamper yourself

Maximize that extra hour of beauty sleep by treating yourself to a massage from DayDreams Day Spa or an IV therapy session from Ayan Wellness. See our list of wellness spots for nine more recommendations.

Work in a workout

Pop into a local gym for a sweat session. CYCLEdelic offers 50-minute spin classes or try a high-intensity group fitness class at Adrenaline Body Works. Or, opt for a 3-mile walk or bike ride along the trail that circumvents Lake Hollingsworth.

Take a tour

Break out

Can you solve the clues to escape in under an hour? Try your luck at Escapology or Lakeland Escape Room, where you only have 60 minutes to find a way out.

Learn from the experts

The Lakeland Public Library hosts virtual Author Talks where you can discuss a new book with its writer. Register for the next talk on Thursday, Nov. 9 at 2 p.m. featuring Tiffany Aliche, author of “Get Good with Money.”
