There are many ways to make this summer memorable. It’s up to you to determine which type of experiences you want to have. The sky is the limit in a world of possibility.
Here are five refreshing ways to usher in summer:
1. Visit a body of water.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a river, lake or ocean. Being by the water is soothing. You can fish, kayak, skip rocks, take photos, and even jet ski in most water-filled areas of the country. Best of all, it’s something you can do with your family. Make sure that the children that are with you wear life jackets and other flotation devices while spending time near the water.
2. Enjoy a frosty treat.
Summer is the perfect time to eat a popsicle, shaved ice or an ice cream cone. Enjoy a frozen treat with no guilt because it’s an easy way to cool off on a hot summer day. You’ll find many locations throughout the city to buy your favorite eats. If you feel bold enough, stop the ice cream man while he’s driving his truck in your neighborhood and order your favorite childhood treat.
3. Go to the library or a museum.
Enjoy the air conditioning while immersing yourself in literature or fine art. You’ll be grateful for the cool air indoors while you expand your horizons intellectually. Best of all, you can take your time, and no one will rush you out the door.
4. Plan a getaway even if it’s only for the weekend.
Give yourself time to recharge your batteries by going somewhere new. You’ll be grateful for the time away and the experience of seeing and doing something you’ve not had the chance to do before. Let it inspire future trips for you and your family to enjoy.
5. Exercise in the pool.
Sign up for a water aerobics class. Swim laps before work instead of jogging in the heat. Take advantage of the time you get to spend in the pool during the summer. Unless you have access to an indoor pool during the winter, it’s the only chance you have to swim regularly.
This list is by no means complete. There are plenty of refreshing things awaiting you this summer. All you need to do is seize the day and find something fun and interesting to do by yourself or with family and friends who are up for an adventure themselves.
Say hello to summer and all the fun it offers. When you carry a refillable water bottle with you wherever you go, you’ll have no problem beating the heat and staying hydrated. Best of all, you won’t be forced to stop what you’re doing to find something cool to drink. You’ll have it with you wherever you go!
