Riga



What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?

There is a lot of history here, with many sights to see. Latvia's national parks and green spaces are also scenic and offer great hiking and camping opportunities. - Sep 21, 2016
There are some good bars and clubs, there are some good but overpriced restaurants. The summer beer gardens are a highlight. Most of the museums in town are nice for a quick stroll, but nothing you'll want to go back to. Jurmala beach is very short train ride or a nice bike ride away. - Jul 11, 2010
Beach, water parks, fishing, zoo, bowling, shopping, travelling, concerts, cinemas, etc. - Aug 23, 2008
