Envied for 80-degree weather, drinks by the pool, and fun vacations spent with family and friends, it’s easy to understand why this is a highly anticipated time of year. And if you’re wondering what this upcoming Summer holds for you, fret not, here is a list of 10 ways to make this the best summer yet!
10 ways to make this the best summer yet
One of the best ways to make this an unforgettable summer is to attend a summer concert. Some artists and bands come to a local outside venue, making it the perfect location for warm summer nights.
So, with that said, grab a friend, score some tickets, and let loose with your favorite music in an outside place!
When people think of summer, they often associate the season with the beach, and who can blame them?
One of the best ways to spend your summer days (and nights) is tanning on the beach. With sites like Airbnb or Vrbo, you can be sure to find a cute cottage or empty condo for your next beach vacation.
You know that new recipe you found on Pinterest? Shop your local farmer’s market for delicious home-grown produce to make a delectable side dish, or to incorporate fresh ingredients.
Make a delicious veggie stir-fry or hash with produce like zucchini, potatoes, broccoli, and peppers.
Before you roll your eyes and think, this is so childish, did you ever have a water-gun that wasn’t fun?
Fill those guns with water and cool off in the heat with a water-gun fight featuring teams with friends or a super hard course!
Featuring the fresh produce you racked up at the farmer’s market, cook some burgers or hot-dogs and invite friends over for a backyard cookout. Include games for the utmost fun!
If you dream of living out a romantic scene from a movie, take a drive into the country for some stargazing on a clear, stary night.
Want to make it even more romantic? Pack some blankets and snacks to make it a cozy and unforgettable date night!
Looking to get some exercise in this summer? Ditch the traditional gyms and take a hike outdoors! Hiking is a great way to get your steps in for the day while also working up a sweat and burning some calories.
Plus, there’s better views hiking than there are at the gym.
After visiting a local farmer’s market, stop by a strawberry farm to pick your own strawberries! Fresh strawberries are great in homemade pies, covered in chocolate, or in breakfast smoothies!
Plant a Garden
Want your own farmer’s market in your backyard? Plants veggies like tomatoes or zucchini in your own garden.
Just like concerts, festivals are another great way to make this the best summer ever. Full of yummy food and fun games, festivals are the best small-town fairs to attend with family or friends for fun and adventure.
