Enjoying the Outdoors in the Heat—Cool Things to Do!

While some people view summer  as a time for rest and relaxation, others may consider it a time for adventure. Check out some of these activities (both relaxing and adventurous) that will keep you busy all summer long.

Beach Day:

Nothing says summer like a trip to the beach. The next time you have a day to yourself, head to the shore to soak up some sun, relax in the sand, and enjoy the salty air! The best thing about the beach is that you can customize activities to your liking. Whether you’re taking a nap in the sun, playing beach volleyball, or surfing the waves, days spent at the beach will prove to be memorable high points of your summer.

Grow a Garden:

If you’re not a big fan of beaches and water and would prefer something  more land-locked, you might try your hand at gardening. Not only is gardening a soothing way to clear the mind,  it also promotes a healthy lifestyle! By growing vegetables right outside your door, your yard will quickly become your favorite produce store.

 If you are all about staying active in the summer, kayaking is perfect for you. Not only does it give your arms and abs a killer workout, you’ll also enjoy the views from the water! Pick a one-seater and head out on your own, or invite a friend along for the ride in a two-seater and share your summer adventure. 

Ride a Roller Coaster:

 Roller coasters are a piece of Americana—from the traditional wooden ones to the crazy whirling dervishes that are popping up in theme parks all over the country.  Whether it’s Coney Island or Disneyland, there’s nothing like a thrill ride to get your adrenaline pumping!
