Summer is something we all look forward to, with days of warm sunshine, light evenings and weeks off of school for children to run wild! Summer is also a great time to try some new activities, and spend time with family and friends. We should all make the most of the great weather and get out there and enjoy ourselves! If you’re wondering how to keep the kids entertained through the holidays and are looking for fun things to do, but are struggling to find a solution, here is a guide to some activities you’ll love this summer.
When the weather is hot, there is nothing quite like water-sports to cool you down. From kayaking and white water rafting to paddle boarding or a gentle row down a river, there is a water-sport to suit all ages and abilities. Water-sport centres offer training and guides, and can be a fun way for people to get together and experience the thrill of water in a safe way! For more information on water-sports in your area, HulaHub.com is a great place to start.
- Camping and Glamping
You can spend a night or two under canvas to feel connected to nature, as this is a fun activity that families and groups can enjoy. Spend an afternoon exploring the surrounding countryside before heading back to camp for dinner and a campfire. Toast some marshmallows, drink a little wine and settle down for the night and listen to the tinkling of a stream and the calls of wildlife around you. If that sounds a little too rustic for your liking, you could also try ‘glamping.’ This is where you can stay in a luxury tent, yurt or tepee, and have everything set up before your arrival. You can expect a proper bed, carpet and possibly even a log burning fire with a chimney, to keep you comfortable during your stay!
- Nature Trails
Summer is a great time of year to go out and explore some nature trails. There are many different trails to find that take you across a variety of terrain. Think shaded woodland, coastal paths, waterfalls, and grasslands. After following a trail, you can then bask in the sunshine or take in the views.
Picnics are best in the summer, and it is great when family members and friends can get together to share a day out. Pack up some sandwiches, fruit, cakes, and treats and spend an afternoon at the park, a riverbank when you can paddle, or take your picnic to the beach. Eating outside gives you the freedom to do what you want, when you want, without having to worry about cooking a meal.
Make the most of the summer months and get out there and experience some fun activities. Come rain or shine; there will always be something interesting you can do. With a little research, you will be able to find new activities, as well as enjoy the usual activities you like to do. Make this summer magical!
