Summer vacation is one of the most awaited times of the year. This is the time when you can finally rest and do whatever you want. But a lot of the time, when summer comes, you just end up binge-watching some movies and staying all day in your room. If you are looking for something more exciting to do this summer, then here is a short, fun bucket list you can check.
Go to the beach.
If you want to go out of the house for a while, then try going to the beach. There are tons of activities you can do there. The colonial beach is one of the must-go places. If you are quite far from there, you don’t have to worry. You can just search for “Colonial Beach vacation rentals” online.
There are a lot of fun activities you can do at the beach. From relaxing things like tanning, making sandcastles, fishing, and just floating on the sea; to more strenuous and extreme activities like wakeboarding, scuba diving, kayaking, and surfing. The possibilities are endless.
Open a lemonade Stand.
If you want to earn some extra cash during summer, then you should definitely open a lemonade stand. Making lemonade is quick and easy. Summer is hot and humid, so a lot of people will definitely look for refreshments, especially the kids. The perfect spot to open a lemonade stand would be in the area in your neighborhood where a lot of kids are playing.
Set up a swing or hammock
Set up a swing or a hammock, and you will have a place to loiter around. Make sure to set them up somewhere shady. This is one of the best options if you want to relax without going somewhere far. Setting a swing or a hammock in your backyard allows you to enjoy the sun and wind calmly.
If you want to do something that requires more strength and energy, then try hiking. The best thing about hiking is you get to exercise, enjoy nature and even help nature by picking up some trash along the way. If you decide to go mountain climbing, reaching the summit is definitely a wonderful achievement. The breeze and view will definitely take your breath.
Go to the lake.
If you still want to go to some body of water but somewhere more peaceful, then try going to the lake. You can go stream around the lake in a boat. You can rent a cabin and have a sleepover with your friends. Barbecuing and making smores are also on the list. Swimming or just loitering on the lake is also a great option.
Have a picnic.
You can never go wrong with a picnic. Invite your friends to go to a picnic on a beautiful day. Assign them to bring certain foods. Bring a polaroid or a digital camera with you and take some pictures.
Slip and slide
If you cannot go to the beach or pool during the summer, then set up a slip-and-slide. This is perfect if your backyard has a small slope. This is a very low-maintenance but fun activity that kids and even adults will definitely enjoy.
Make ice cream.
You cannot leave out ice cream during summer. Ice cream is the perfect dessert for a hot day. To make things more interesting, try making it at home. Making homemade ice cream is a fun bonding activity, and the best part about this is you can customize your ice cream all you want. You can put as much chocolate and toppings as much as you like. The ingredients you need are also easy to find.
