1. Make Homemade Ice Cream

Homemade ice cream is a breeze to make and so much quicker than you imagined! Create a special one-of-a-kind recipe along with the required ingredients and with a little patience, your homemade ice cream will be the best you’ve ever had!

2. Take A Hike 

Hiking, bicycling, running and the like are all fun and healthy activities made for warm weather and lots of daylight. Use this opportunity to connect with your deeper self as you conquer mountains. There’s always some kind of opportunity to do these activities around you if you do some research. Plan responsibly and by the end of the day, you can sit and watch the sun set after a satisfying romp through nature. 

3. Go Camping

If you want to extend your day past the sunset, then picture yourself going camping under a blanket of stars. Add a cozy tent and all your camping gear to a hike and set out for an amazing adventure. Camping in the great outdoors is typically inexpensive with plenty of places where you can camp for free – including designated campgrounds in National Forests. Find an appropriate and safe place and soon camping will become your new favorite getaway.

4. Pick Fresh Flowers

Sometimes the smallest pleasures make the biggest impact. Pick some summer flowers and make an arrangement for your home that you can look at day after day. Bring nature inside with you to create a space that reminds you of the beauty all around us. Let the bright colors complement your home decor and bring a smile to your face when you see your ode to summer on display. 

5. Attend A Concert

All summer long, music festivals are going strong across the USA. Surprise a friend with a pair of tickets and plan a weekend of singing all day and staying up late into the night. You’ll see that there’s no better way to spend a summer night while making memories you’ll never forget.

6. Have A Picnic

Picnics can be as simple or elaborate as you’d like. You can make finger foods or fire up the BBQ! Tell your family and friends to prepare for a fun day of lounging, talking, playing, and eating in the great outdoors. Spending this kind of quality time with loved ones is easy to do and one of our favorite summer activities. 

7. Spend The Day On A Boat

A boat sounds like it a complicated endeavor to arrange plus a big expense, but it doesn’t have to be. If you find a charter boat, you can choose options for half-day or full-day excursions and set sail! It is a wonderful time and so refreshing on a hot summer day to have the ocean spray on your skin. Maybe you’re having brunch on a sailboat, a wine tasting on a yacht or a sunset cruise on a catamaran – the point being that you’ll be enjoying a peak summer activity and make an unforgettable experience.

8. Read A Book In A Local Park

Unfortunately, nowadays fewer people are reading in their local parks, opting instead to scroll on their smartphones. Don’t be afraid to take a break from technology while getting a well-deserved dose of vitamin D. It’s one of the most enjoyable plans you can make by yourself that will keep you entertained for hours (and at no cost!). Grab the latest bestseller and find yourself a bench to park on for day after day.

9. Take A Road Trip

Want the ultimate summer challenge? Take a road trip with several friends to incredible destinations. Break your day-to-day routine and open your mind. When you’re out of your comfort zone is when you’ll meet new people and make new friends. Sounds like a great plan, doesn’t it? 

10. Enjoy The Beach

Research shows that those who live near the ocean are happier and healthier. Obviously, not everyone can live on the water, but it does have therapeutic effects even after just a few days. Plan a beach getaway and recharge your batteries to the steady rhythm of the ocean waves lapping on the shore
