One of our American favorite summer time fun in the Greek mainland (near Athens) is listed below. Live local with a Vouliagmeni Lake visit, beach and dinner with special dessert option. - 9AM Meet at Hotel - Stop at a local baked goods shop for some greek coffee and pastries. - 9:30 arrive at Vouliagmeni Lake - swim in fresh water lake with huge rock formations. Enjoy sunning on beach chairs and swim in the shallow water with little sucker fish treatment. This is relaxing and good for the skin as you remove dead cells. They can be unnerving at first the the perfect relaxation. - 12 noon - Lunch at the lake. Traditional greek salads are offered as well as burgers, gyros and more. Great for kids. - 3 PM Visit Glyfada shopping district by public bus. Many shops from American brands like Gap and international famous brands. - Dinner at traditional Greek dish restaurant serving since 1960s in Vouliagmeni just a block from the ocean. - Dessert is a short walk away from the restaurant to a very popular gelato, coffee and waffle shop. This is a really trendy and fun spot for folks of all ages. Get ready to enjoy greek evenings like a local. The Wilmoths.
