The sun is bright and hot and summer is officially here. Long gone are the cold winter nights and the rains of spring. Now that summer is here, it is time to enjoy the warm season and the beautiful weather life has to offer. Plan those trips to the beach with your friends and family and make sure to have a good time under the sun. The summer season is almost always the perfect season to go out and have fun. It is officially when school is out and bikinis are officially in. Here are 10 ways to celebrate the summer season with your family, friends and loved ones:
- Make some Lemonade
Nothing says summer is here than seeing lemonade stands. If you are having a party at your place, enjoy the summer vibes with a pitcher or glasses of lemonade. If you want to earn some cash during the summer break, sell them to your neighbors, friends and family. Everyone enjoys a cold glass of lemonade under the summer heat.
- Have a Bonfire
Bonfires are actually a great way to welcome the summer season. Have a bonfire with your friends. Gather around the warm fire and talk about your lives, plans for the future or share some ghost stories. You can also enjoy a few toasted marshmallows or some smore’s as you gaze into the fire or look up at the stars. You can even bring a guitar or any instrument so you can sing some bonfire songs.
- Buy flowers
Summer is a great time to shop for flowers at the florist near you. This is because most flowers would be in bloom by this time. The vibrant colors of these blooms will surely make any summer break happier. Color someone’s day or house with a bouquet or vase of flowers. You can even buy summer flowers to decorate your own house to give off that summer vibe.
- Pool Parties
Pool parties are great during the summer, especially if the water is cool and fights off against the heat of the summer sun. If you already have a pool at home, invite your friends to have a pool party. You can also buy a backyard swimming pool set, which can be inflatable or not, and invite your family and friends for some food or barbeque by the pool.
- Road trip
The summer season is actually a great time to go on a road trip with your friends. This is because you are sure to have good weather that would not dampen your spirits or your plans. Grab your friends and get in the car as you sing out to your favorite tunes. You can even roll your windows down and go anywhere you want with no particular destination, that is what is so great about road trips with friends or family.
- Have a Picnic
Having a picnic would be great during the summer because you are assured of good weather. Pack your lunches and enjoy your food outdoors with your friends and family. You can even have a barbeque or make burgers as you sip on your cold lemonade and enjoy the view of nature.
- Go to a local farmer’s market
Because of the nice weather, expect your local farmers to display their goods after harvest season. Shop for fresh fruits, vegetables and even meat during this season. You can even hit up your local artisans to find handcrafted goodies that you may never be able to find in grocery stores. Go fresh, during the summer and enjoy organic food.
- Hit the beach
One of the most sought out activity during the summer season. Call your friends, or plan an outing with your family to go to the beach. Enjoy the calm waves, beautiful sunsets and salty breeze as you relax and unwind at the beach. Do not forget your sunblock or your snacks as some beaches do not have a store nearby.
- Go chase waterfalls
If you are not the type that enjoys sand in your feet but up for a great adventure, why don’t you look up your local waterfalls and go see them? Enjoy a quick dip in the cool water as you enjoy the sound of the water crashing down against rocks from the mountain. This is perfect even for those who do not really know how to swim as the water below the waterfalls are usually shallow. Just make sure to know how to properly dive or jump when jumping in waterfalls to avoid injuries.
- Go for a trek
If you are more of an earth and wind type of person rather than the water type, then maybe trekking mountains and cliffs is the perfect summer activity for you. Make sure to prepare your body when going on a trek to avoid accidents. Ask for a local guide if you are unfamiliar with the terrain and learn about it. Make sure to wear proper gear when trekking and cliff climbing.
There are a lot of fun activities available for you to do during the summer compared to other seasons of the year. This is because activities are easily done when the weather is good and the weather is usually good during the summer season. You can even enjoy activities at home but it is best if you enjoy the warm sunshine before it becomes cold again.
