It’s officially summer and you’re ready to leave your cubicle in the dust and have some fun - at least for the weekend. Don’t spend your days vegging in front of the TV this year (we know how it goes - you make that summer bucket list and check off one, maybe two items and promise yourself you’ll do it all when next June rolls around). Head out on these 7 summer adventures and you’ll be sure to have the time of your life.
Who says picnics are just for lunch? Grab your gal pals, your honey, or your kids and find a perfect spot to lay out a blanket and indulge in a picnic-worthy brunch. Picnics are almost always on summer adventure bucket lists so make it your goal. The memories created will last a lifetime and you’ll have some fresh images for your Instagram feed.
Whether you’re the type who likes to sleep under the stars or you’re a gal who prefers the comforts of home, camping is a must this summer. Grab your gear and head into the great outdoors. Don’t have the equipment you need to rough it? Glamp it up in your own backyard and spend some time staring up at the starry sky. Either way, don’t forget the marshmallows!
Remember the days of giggling all night with your closest girlfriends? Recreate that with your pals for an unforgettable summer adventure. Watch your favorite movies, paint each others nails, and have a giggle fest. You might not make it to 4 a.m. like you used to but the nostalgia will refresh your soul.
For a summer adventure you won’t soon forget, hop in the car and head to a getaway that’s a 2- 4 hour drive away. Whether you hit up a big city or a small town, there’s exploring to be done. Remember, road trips aren’t just about the destination. Roll down your windows, blast your favorite tunes and enjoy the journey.
Cotton candy, anyone? Everyone loves a good carnival so find one close to you and play like you’re a kid again. Ride the Ferris wheel, play booth games, and gorge yourself on funnel cake (it’s totally ok to do every now and again).
River, lake, or ocean, water is good for the body and the soul and there’s no better way to cool off than to dive right in. For a sporty summer adventure, try out kayaking or whitewater rafting. For a more chill water day, grab a fun pool float and lounge the day away.
We all need time to ourselves and declaring a day (or a whole weekend) as time just for you can be quite the adventure. Since this day is all about you, make it as low key or as wild as you want! Spend the day at the spa (or create a DIY spa at home), cozy up with a good book, or hit the trails. Whatever feels refreshing and exciting to you is the way to go.
