Dreading a whole summer of working indoors while you watch friends and family whisked away on adventures? Plan some summer activities of your own to enjoy and create memories to share with friends all winter long.
1. Road Trip
If you have a long weekend off from work, use the time to take a road trip. Look at the available sites near your home and plan a large circular drive that takes in as many of the curiosities as possible. Don’t forget to schedule your lodging well in advance of the trip to ensure you have a place to stay after a great day of laughter, pictures, and good food.
2. Water Fun
Water fun isn’t all about splashing in the liquid near the shoreline. Take your water adventure to the next level with skiing, boating, or rafting. You can make the experience more memorable by renting a Tropical Boat yacht with friends and enjoying the warm summer day and night out on the water. You can ever spend several days out floating around for a truly unforgettable time.
3. Yard Party
If you have a big yard, why not have a big party? Invite your friends, family, and work associates to join the festivities. Request that each guest bring their own meat to toss on the grill, and an additional side dish or drink. Don’t forget to have enough seating for everyone, and if you have a pool, ask your guests bring a towel along with their swimsuits.
4. Outside Camp
If you are one of those fun-loving outdoorsy types that love to go camping, take a few days to get out in nature and enjoy the wilderness. Whether you camp at an organized site or choose a designated wilderness location, you will spend your days hiking among majestic trees and beautiful flowering bushes that cover the landscape. Don’t forget to bring snacks and water for your trekking adventures, and a comfortable sleeping bag to cuddle up in during the night.
5. Sky Journey
Since more than 50% of people in the United States live in cities, it can be very difficult to see the amazing views the sky has to offer. If you have a mountain, hill, or viewpoint near your home, drive to the spot and spend the evening watching the sunset. The gorgeous colors will differ depending on the area you live in, but no matter where you are, when the sunset changes into a night sky filled with stars, you can’t help but marvel at the expansive nature of the universe.
6. Hammock Nap
Sometimes spending time alone in the comfort of your yard can be the highlight of your day. Grab a hammock, a book, and a pillow for a great leisurely moment on a warm afternoon. The gentle swaying of the hammock will soon put you to sleep, even if you try to stay focused on your book.
These are only a few of the thousands of possibilities of summer activities you can participate in this year. You won’t find more enjoyable days that those you spend out in nature, with family, or watching a sunset. Enjoy the time before winter returns and moves you indoors.
