With school right around the corner, you might be thinking, “What did I do this summer?” You had a road trip to California, at least two trips to the local amusement park, and several days at the beach on your list of things to do this summer. Now it’s almost September and you’ve barely hit the beach twice. Where did the summer go?
Here are five fun things you can do in the last few nights left before heading back to school.
1. Have a cookout with some friends.
Celebrate the end of summer by hosting a cookout with some friends. Brats, hot dogs, burgers, steak, kabobs, etc. Save yourself some $$ by making it BYO meats/veggies to grill and spend the afternoon hanging out and enjoying some good food and sunshine
2. Go to the beach!
There’s tons to do at the beach, play beach volleyball, go swimming, lay out in the sun, or throw around a frisbee. Don’t have a beach? Check out the local parks, or make your backyard a beach oasis.
3. Go for a bike ride/walk/hike
Find a bike trail, hiking trail, etc and explore nature one last time before shutting yourself away in the library.
4. Invite some friends to a drive-in movie.
Every state has a few, so odds are, there’s one somewhat close to you. This is a fun way to chill with friends, watch a good movie (or two!), and still save some money. Plus, they tend to be cheaper than the traditional movie theater.
5. Host a bonfire/campfire
Roast some marshmallows, relax around a fire, and enjoy the last it of the cool summer breeze.
