Rediscover your favorite time of the year with these ultimate summer experiences.
Grab your hiking boots, a cozy tent, and all your camping gear and set out for an adventure in the great outdoors.
Take an outdoor yoga class
It’s a great way to bring new energy to your practice. Flowing through asanas in the open air, with nature as a backdrop, is an amazing experience. Just be sure to wear your sunscreen!
Go for a run
Sign up for a 5K and either take it seriously or don’t worry about your finish time. Track your distance and so much more with the Garmin Vivosmart Activity Tracker from Buydig,com.
Have a classic outdoor picnic
Food just tastes better when you enjoy it outdoors. Don’t forget to include the basket and checkered blanket.
Plan a barbecue
If you haven’t thrown a big backyard barbecue yet, what are you waiting for? With the extra-large cooking surface on the Cuisinart Indoor/Outdoor Grill from Buydig.com you can prepare a big meal in one shot. Change it up and try grilling some corn on the cob, peaches, and pineapple for your friends.
Spend the day on a boat
Whether you’re having brunch on a sailboat, kayaking or canoeing on your favorite lake, soak in the last bit of summer on the water.
Read your favorite book in your local park
Take a break and disappear into your favorite eBook on your Samsung Galaxy tablet while getting a well-deserved dose of vitamin D.
Check out your local farmers’ market
Get the freshest, in-season produce in your neck of the woods.
Be a tourist in your own town
Growing up in a place can make you blind to some of its most charming sites. Check out your town’s website to get an idea of what it considers “tourist attractions” and set aside a day to go explore each and every one of them.
Take a hike
Even if you don’t travel very far, there’s nothing like watching the sunset while surrounded by nature. Wear your Garmin GPS Smartwatch to not only track your distance, but allow your family to track you in case you lose your way.
Go to a baseball game
Whether it’s the minors or the majors, summers were made for enjoying a baseball game while enjoying hot dogs.
Take the plunge
Long, hot summer days were made for visiting local swimming holes.
Book a summer retreat
Even if it’s just for one night, waking up in a new place is the ultimate indulgence following a busy week. Instead of visiting a hotel, try something a little quirkier, like a tiny house or a treehouse.
Take a road trip
Summer is the perfect season to hit the road and explore.
Make a scrapbook
Take a picture every time you cross something off of your bucket list. Then make a scrapbook with all of your summer memories.
Whether you’re battling the throngs of a demanding office job or juggling three children between two arms, you’ve never deserved some summer fun more than you do now.
