As the summer continues, social distancing and face masks are in full effect. You can still have fun for the rest of the summer months, even though safety precautions are being taken. Spend time outdoors, learn a new skill, or safely spend time with others. Here are some fun activities to enjoy for the rest of the summer.
Many people need a getaway from their homes, especially after staying inside them during stay-at-home orders. Since vacations and cruise ships are not the safest options at the moment, a great alternative is to go camping. Find a campground where you can pitch a tent or bring your RV.
Plan outdoor activities to pass the time while you are there. Come prepared for poor weather conditions. You never know when it will downpour or get chilly out. Be sure to bring the essentials along with you including:
A Day On the Water
If you live near a lake or ocean, the socially distant options are endless. Find a place that rents kayaks or stand-up paddleboards. Take your family out on the boat for a day of tubing. Spend some time at the beach. Bring out the old fishing rods that you have not used in a while. Don’t like the heat during the daytime? Bring a picnic blanket and some snacks to watch the sunset or sunrise over the water.
Start a Garden
It is not too late to start a healthy garden this summer! This could be both indoors or outdoors. Up your cooking game with fresh ingredients. Some herbs that are easy to grow in your home include basil, parsley, mint, and thyme. Crops that you can plant in late summer/fall months include kale, spinach, squash, and cucumbers. Get your garden started with planters that encourage plant growth.
Instead of going to a traditional movie theater, find a drive-in theater nearby to watch a movie or two. This is the perfect way to stay socially distant and outdoors. If there is not a drive-in near you, set up a projector in your backyard, and stream a movie from Netflix or Hulu.
Another option is to host a virtual movie night with your friends and family through Zoom and Netflix Party. Vote on a favorite movie, dress in comfy clothes, and enjoy a movie night together.
