When we think of childhood summers, we think of the pleasant nights chasing fireflies, walking barefoot on hot beach sand, and hours of fun that didn’t cost a thing! Just because we’re adults doesn’t mean we have to spend a lot of money to celebrate on of our favorite season. In fact, there are endless activities we can do this summer that will barely cost a thing!
Here’s a list of a few kickass things to do or whatever makes the “summer you” happy as a clam.
1. FLASHLIGHT TAG
It’s time to round up the gang and play some flashlight tag. Let’s face it, laser tag can be fun but it also entails spending some cash. So head on over your best friend’s giant mansion or a wide backyard or any area that be dark and rally the troops for a game. Remember: you have to shout the person’s name once you flash the light on them.
2. THROW THE BEST PARTY EVER
Just because the summer’s winding down doesn’t mean you have an excuse for not getting turnt up. Don’t go with the same old lame drink cocktails. Discover new recipes on the Internet!
3. HANG A HAMMOCK
Building a tree house is complicated; hanging a hammock is less complicated. Find a space, any space, indoor, outdoor, by a door, and secure your hammie. Just lay back and enjoy the thrill of a gentle sway.
3. PLAY A RANDOM BEACH GAME WITH STRANGERS
Nothing says “new friendship” like spiking a volleyball into your new companion’s face. After all, competition is the foundation on which all good things are built, right? LOL.
4. GO ON A ROAD TRIP AND DRIVE INTO A SUNSET
Plug in your favorite summer playlist and hit the road with your friends and go to new places. It is a perfectly cinematic end to a summer filled with all kinds of adventure.
5. SLEEP ON NATURE
It’s about time you got in touch with nature, and we all know the best way to get in touch with something is to sleep with it. So take that summer camping trip to a super rustic level and post up on a nice mossy patch in your favorite stretch of woods.
Whatever it is you’re into– oceans, cars, adventure, etc.– it’s all better in summer!
