The end of summer is a sad time, but it’s luckily not over yet! We still have a few weeks left before the trees start to change colors and the weather gets cold before the winter. If you want to take advantage of the few remaining summer days we have left to enjoy, here are four things to think about… before it’s officially too late.
1. Get Some Hiking In
No matter where you live, you can usually find some pretty nice hikes. If you don’t live in the lush rocky mountains, maybe it will be more of a walk; the important thing is to be outside before the days get short and nights cold. You can do a quick online search for hikes/walks in your area or you can just wing it and head out. If you are going anywhere unknown or deep into nature, be see to tell some close friends of your plans, and be prepared for any situation!!
2. Picnic Around the Parks
If you can’t fit it into your schedules to get out of town for some nice nature hikes, maybe break the adventures into smaller excursions and do a handful of picnics, weather permitting, indifferent parks around your area. A Google Maps search can help you find the closest park to your home. Try to get some other families involved, the more the merrier.
3. Head to the Water One Last Time
For those of you where the winters get really cold, you may want to head to the beach, pool, lake, or water park one more time! Even if you don’t enjoy the water, you can take a packed lunch, umbrella, beach games, etc. The activity is the event. If you need something to wear to such a water event, check out the selection barenecessities.com offers. They have great styles and great deals so you’ll even be ready for next summer!
4. End of Summer BBQ
Everybody loves a good BBQ. Why not send summer off with a bang, invite over your closest friends and relatives, have some refreshments and get celebrate the end of the summer together. Ask different groups to bring different necessities so not all the responsibility falls on you! Maybe some will even stick around late and help clean up.
