Fridays are perfect for unwinding and spending time with loved ones. The weekend is just beginning, the work week is done, and you have the next day to rest and recharge. With that being said, sometimes you don’t want to go out — you’d rather stay local, in the comfort of home. At Heirloom, that’s made possible with activities and amenities on the community’s grounds which ensure life never bores. For our existing homeowners and future ones too, read on to learn more about all the things to get up to on Fridays (but really on any night of the week) at Heirloom — a community that embraces the best of Boomerhood™.

1. Poolside Book Club

Gather poolside with like-minded neighbors to discuss new reads and experience the perfect blend of relaxation and intellectual stimulation. Recline on a comfortable lounge chair, bask in the sun, and sip on a refreshing drink — it’ll soon be a ritual.

2. Water Aerobics

Have fun and a great workout with a water aerobics class. Give friends or neighbors the chance to showcase their aquatic skills with upbeat music to keep spirits high. It’s one of our favorite ways to celebrate community and connection while getting in some exercise.

3. Game Night

Spice up your night with a semi-competitive game night. Whether it’s board games, card games, or bocce ball, choose a theme and invite friends over to participate. With optimal open space and tables to entertain, the options are endless.

4. Wine Tasting

Gather your closest friends and host a wine tasting at the clubhouse by the warm fireplace. The ambiance is perfect for an intimate gathering to enjoy carefully-selected wines and a charcuterie board. Share stories and laughter while the rustic charm of the setting creates a memorable experience for all.

5. Dinner with Loved Ones

Empire Heirloom’s modern and well-equipped kitchens are perfect for the purposes of entertaining. Research some new recipes, gather ingredients, and whip up a feast to share with guests. Don’t forget to set up a stunning tablescape in one of the clubhouse’s expansive dining areas. Your guests will be talking about this intimate and comfortable dining experience for weeks.

6. Grab a Racket

Experience the thrill of pickleball to kick off the weekend. The well-maintained facilities and lush surroundings provide the ideal backdrop for people of all skill levels to engage in recreational matches or intense rallies. Whether you’re a seasoned pro improving technique or a newcomer eager to learn, the courts are the perfect place to put skills to the test. Plus, with lights surrounding the courts, evenings are ideal for playtime too.

7. Take an Evening Stroll

Make your Friday night a tranquil one as you and your loved ones take an evening stroll along nearby trails such as the Big Creek Greenway located at the front of the community, or the Sawnee Mountain Preserve. The setting sun casts a warm, golden hue over the landscape, painting the perfect backdrop for a casual walk. As you meander through the area’s natural beauty, the worries of the day are sure to fade away.

8. Go for a Bike Ride

Pedal your way to excitement on a bike ride along Heirloom’s nearby trails. Each twist and turn of the path brings a new adventure, offering both a physical challenge and a stunning escape. Whether you’re riding solo or with friends, the shared experience of exploration and the simple joy of cycling ensure a good time.
