Make the 27th (Mon) a memorable day with a climbing tour. And it doesn't end there: buy something for everyone on your list at The Hub Karen, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, tour the pleasant surroundings at Giraffe Centre, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers.
