Spring is here and summer is right around the corner. Depending on where you live, you may be enjoying some early summer heat. Enjoy these spring/summer outdoor activities with your mate, your family or with girlfriends. You can do many of these on your own too. Happy Spring and Summer to you.
Make a reservation for an afternoon brunch or tea. Better yet, plan a potluck brunch. Set up a bright and airy tablescape and enjoy an afternoon of food and conversation.
Head to the park. Pack your picnic basket with everything you need for a light lunch. Don’t forget your blanket, bug spray, magazines and music.
Check your local parks, public spaces and venues for outdoor concerts. Many big cities offer free concerts in business districts or in parks. It’s another great outdoor activity. And another great way to get in a picnic
Yes to food truck festivities, food and wine festivals and good outdoor eats. Soak it all in. A quick google search will have you on your way to discovering some great treats and eats.
Farmers Market Dinner
Plan a dinner with friends. Farm to table is in but if you don’t live on or near a farm you can make this a farmers market dinner. Head to your local farmers market, grab what you need and invite friends over for the evening. Enjoy dinner on your deck by candlelight.
Wine, Cheese & Chocolate
I love all of the above so why not host a wine and goodies get together. Pick 2 whites, 2 reds and cheese, chocolate, crackers and fruits. Fondue is perfect for this affair. This is an easy activity to enjoy in the afternoon or evening.
Do you leave near a beach? If so pack up for the day and head for the sand. Land locked? Make a weekend drive of it or check out local manmade beaches at lakes and parks.
Sign up for a fun night run with friends. Color runs, electric runs, as long as it’s at night you will hopefully avoid the excess summer heat. This is a great way to burn some calories, capture great moments and fun with family or friends.
