How to Have a Fun Summer

As summer is coming up, people are wondering what to do this summer. Here are a few ideas.

The school year is coming to an end and summer is just around the corner. This leaves me wondering what am I going to do this summer? While sitting in my room binge-watching shows is fun, it can get quite boring after some time. So here are some ideas of what you can do to have fun this summer and not let it go to waste. 

Go on a Walk

A simple thing you can do anytime is going on a walk. Going on a walk can be a good way to get the daily exercise you need without going through much trouble. You can do it around your neighborhood or if you enjoy nature more, find a hiking trail near you and go on a hike. You can even invite a couple of friends to go out with you. Nonetheless, taking a walk is good for your health and enjoying the beauty of nature. 

Have a Picnic

What better way to spend the summer than having a picnic with friends. Gather a few of your friends and tell them to bring some snacks and you have yourself a picnic. There are many places where you can have a picnic such as a local park or your friend’s backyard. Enjoy your food while you talk about life, look at nature, and maybe have a photoshoot. Picnics are just a great way to spend some quality time with your friends and have fun. 

Amusement Parks

If you have some extra money to spend, try going to the fair or an amusement park. There are endless amounts of rides so you’ll never get tired of going. Amusement parks/fairs are filled with rides that go up and down giving you a thrilling experience. If you get motion sickness don’t worry, there are also a ton of carnival games you can play. Even if you don’t go on the rides, amusement parks/fairs have food stands where you can try a lot of different foods such as funnel cakes or cotton candy. 


A favorite pastime of many during the summer is going to the pool. You can go to your local community pool or just have fun in your own backyard if you own a pool yourself. Pool parties are always fun in the summer whether you’re invited to one or you’re the host. Hitting the pool on a hot summer day is a great way to relax. Especially when the weather happens to be above 90 degrees. 

Road Trip

If you love to travel, plan a road trip. Take a few friends in your car, or if you want, rent a van. You can choose a certain place you want to go to or just drive with no destination in mind. Make a few pit stops along the way to just enjoy nature there or visit tourist attractions in that state. While your road trip may not be as eventful as the one in Almost Famous, it’s still exciting since you never know what you’ll see on the road. 

Summer is a great time of the year and it should be filled with long exciting days. Whether you want to go on a road trip or have a picnic in your backyard this summer, the possibilities are endless. So enjoy the weather and make sure to have fun this summer!
