Last Second Summer Activities You Have to Do Before Summer Ends
August 30, 2016 •
Summer is drawing to a close, and whether you like it or not, winter will soon be upon us. Whether that’s a good thing or not depends on your preferences, but you can’t deny that the colder season makes some activities less pleasant. If you’ve been meaning to get out and do some summer-appropriate activities, but you’re at a loss of how to make the best of the rest of the season, here are some ideas to get you going.
Go on a Road Trip
Not everyone has the time or money to go on a full-fledged vacation during the summer, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t take a miniature road trip. Even if you haven’t budgeted for a big trip and you can’t take time off work, you can still probably get a kick out of travelling just for the weekend. Perhaps there's a place a few hours away that you’ve been meaning to check out but just haven’t gotten around to. Of course, you don’t necessarily need to have a destination in mind. Hitting the road without knowing where you’ll end up is the perfect way to fuel your adventurous spirit and cap off the summer with some good memories.
Do Some Outdoor Activities
You don’t need to go far to get out of the house and get active. The winter promises milder temperatures that make doing things outside a little more manageable than in the heat of summer, but if you’re sensitive to the cold, it’s just about the right time to get active outside. Looking to reconnect with nature? Go for a hike or spend the weekend camping. Rather stay close to civilization? Explore the city by foot or go for a bike ride on one of the many bike paths. Head outside and you’ll find that there’s plenty to do.
Enjoy the Sunshine and Watch the Sunset
While the temperatures in Nevada seldom drop to unbearable lows, there is one unfortunate thing that winter brings: shorter days. Even if you’re a night owl, you can’t deny that spending more time in the dark can be a bummer during the winter. Plus, with less time to enjoy the natural light of the sun, you’ll also be less likely to catch the sunset. That’s especially true if you work regular hours and the sun sets while you’re still at work. So, make the best of the daylight, go to your favorite sunset-watching spot, and enjoy the stunning vistas while you can!
Spend Some Family Time
If you have a family, the end of summer means the beginning of a new school year. Even if you yourself aren’t taking classes this fall, school being back in session means that everyone in your family is going to be a lot busier than they were in summer. Doing something together is a great way to have some fun and make some lifelong memories. And be sure to get some ideas from everyone. Allow everyone to pitch in with ideas by asking your little ones what things they’d like to do before summer ends.
