Enjoy the greatest summer ever with these ideas for you and your family:
1. Swim in a natural body of water
It's summer, you just have to.
The smell of meat cooking while sitting outside in lawn chairs is just so summeresque.
3. Buy a swimsuit you love
You deserve to feel great this summer. Use this site to determine the perfect swimsuit for you.
4. Star gaze
There is something so magical about lying in the grass, looking up into the heavens, and staring at the stars. Let yourself be blown away by the wonder and vastness of the skies. You may even get to wish upon a shooting star.
5. Go camping
Even if it's in your own backyard.
6. Go to a drive-in movie
Or you can create your own outdoor movie experience. Make popcorn, eat candy and get comfy with lots and lots of pillows and blankets.
7. Ride a boat
Whether it's a ski boat, ferry, or kayak - ride a boat!
8. Read a book for FUN
Here is a list of great books to get you started. Order one online or stop by your local library. Have a book handy when you go to the pool or relax at home. Summer is the perfect time to get caught up on reading.
9. Take a sunset walk
10. Rock out in your car with the windows down
11. Go to a rodeo
If you've never been before - GO! Rodeos are so fun and entertaining. Warning: your heart may skip a few beats while watching bull riding and wild broncos. It's okay though, it adds to the thrill and excitement of rodeo.
12. Pick fruit
Straight from the tree.
13. Watch fireworks
You should also (carefully) set some off!
14. Go a whole day without getting ready
Because you can.
15. Sleep in as late as you can
Also because you can.
16. Slide down a waterslide
I mean, who doesn't love adrenaline, water, and wedgies?
17. Go to a concert
Summer is the best time to take advantage of concert tours, state fairs, and music festivals. Check online to see what's going on around you.
18. Complete a house project
That project you've been wanting to do all year? Now's the perfect time!
19. Change your hair
Chop it off so it's cool and breezy for the summer, add some highlights, or just let it do its thing.
20. Go on a bike ride
21. Draw with chalk
Create a chalk masterpiece. Draw some flowers or write a quote. Outline your friend or child. Or, drawing a Hopscotch is always a classic.
22. Learn new skills
Like... cooking, basic car mechanics, first-aid, swimming, or surfing. Summer is the perfect time to acquire a new skill.
23. Have a bonfire
S'mores are a must. You should also experiment with other options like roasting Starburts' candies. Seriously!
24. Visit somewhere new
Go far or go near. But go!
25. Go to a baseball game
Let me "root, root, root" for the home team, if they don't win it's a shame. For it's one, two, three strikes you're out at the old ball game.
26. Fall asleep in the sun
It's the greatest. (Just don't get sunburned.)
