Enjoying the Great Outdoors
You’ve been cooped up inside all winter and the rain has made spring too damp to go outside. Summer is just around the corner and people nationwide are getting ready to bask in the sun and enjoy the warm weather. But how can you ensure the best summer ever? From party ideas to mosquito traps, this post is all about getting the most out of the summer.
Invite Friends Over
A simple night sitting outside and catching up with your friends is a great way to kick off the summer. To keep pests away, look into getting mosquito traps. Be sure you get the effective traps that use carbon dioxide and heat to lure the mosquitoes then trap them in a net where they dehydrate and die. These traps are so successful that after a few weeks of running 24/7 you’ll see a noticeable reduction in the mosquito population.
Get a jump start on the mosquito population and install yours so it will be ready in time for your summer kick-off party. Your friends will appreciate having a mosquito barrier around them!
Take a Hike!
Hiking is an activity people of all ages can enjoy. Walking through the woods, seeing wildlife come out to play and nature bloom before your eyes. Hiking guides are available at local bookstores and online, which will give you an idea of where to hike to see the most magnificent views around your area.
Take Me to the River
Being by the river, whether you are fishing, swimming or canoeing, is a peaceful way to spend the afternoon. A simple walk along the river can clear your mind and really let your senses run wild by hearing the river, seeing the wild life and smelling the flowers bloom around you.
Go for a Ride
Biking isn’t just for kids. Many areas now have dedicated walking and biking trails that wind through nature, taking you away from the hustle and bustle of the world. Many of these trails are converted from old railroad lines, meaning they will be flat and easy to traverse. Biking is not only fun, but it is also a great way to get into shape.
Take Me Out to the Ballgame
America’s past time has been a family favorite for over a century. With minor league teams all around, it is easy to find a ballpark to take in a game or two. For under ten bucks, you can usually get a ticket in the “cheap seats”, even in some professional parks. While the home team might not always win, it is a fun way to spend the afternoon or night. Who doesn’t like to hear the crack of a bat on a warm summer night?
Geocaching: A Scavenger Hunt for Everyone
For those not in the know, geocaching is an activity that has only grown in popularity over the last few years. By finding coordinates and placing them into a handheld GPS unit, individuals have been venturing into the woods going on a modern-day scavenger hunt. The prizes to be found are usually just small trinkets, but the thrill of the search is the main appeal.
Great Fun is just Outside your Door
Whether you are watching baseball, searching through the woods, or just enjoying quality time with your family and friends, the outdoors in the summer time can’t be beat.
