28 Exciting Things To Do This Summer

Every year when the weather finally starts to warm up I get this unexpected excitement and energy to try new things and get outside. I love the thrill of the Summer months, there’s something about the heat and endless adventure that gets me pumped.

28 Exciting Things To Do This Summer

If you’re a bit of an adventurous soul and have a strong feeling of wanderlust, but you aren’t sure what to do in the Summer then let this list be your guide.

I’ve only listed activities that I myself would enjoy doing so feel free to modify it to fit your own desires. For example, you will never see skydiving on my list, ever, but if that’s something you’d love to do, add it to yours!!

The Best Summer Activities.

I decided it’d be best to break down this list of 28 things into 3 different categories. This summer my goal is to explore more, seek out adventure, and try to live my ideal lifestyle.

Explore My Surroundings.

I love to be outside and explore new places, and in my opinion, summer is the best time to do that. Exploring can entail so many things, from hiking new trails to visiting the local zoo, or even taking a road trip!

Adventure Seeking.

There’s something about summertime that usually makes me a bit more adventurous than usual. I like to take this as an opportunity to get outside my comfort zone and try new things. The two main things on my summer list that stick out for this category are ziplining and rock climbing!

Ideal Lifestyle.

Improving myself and how I live is something I’m constantly striving for. I believe that we all have something we can improve on and we each have our own ideal lifestyle that we’re trying to meet. This could be something as simple as going to a farmer’s market every weekend or as complex as training for a half marathon!
