Ten Things To Do This Summer

By Charlotte Johnston

With the school year coming to a close, people are already thinking about what they want to do this summer. Here is a list of activities that you can do this summer once we are finished with exams and May Terms.

Number 1- Have a bonfire.

A bonfire is a perfect summer night activity. You can get together with friends and family to sit around the fire and roast marshmallows and catch up. You can even use some old school papers to get the fire going. 

Number 2- Ride your bike.

Riding your bike is a great way to exercise and get out of the house. During school, we sit down way too much and we are always looking at our phones or iPads. Going for a bike ride every once in a while will help get you away from your phone for a little bit and make you feel more relaxed.

Number 3- Have an outdoor movie night.

During the summer, get an outdoor projector and have a movie night under the stars. You can set the projector on your house or garage door and sit outside for a while. Outdoor movies are nice because you can watch the moon and stars and also see all the fireflies and birds flying around. 

Number 4- Go swimming.

When it gets hot out there’s nothing more relaxing than swimming in a cold pool. Not only do you get exercise, but you can also relax and swim laps or sunbathe and get a summer tan. 

Number 5- Go camping.

As the weather gets nicer, and the nights are not cold anymore, it is fun to camp outside. You can go camping in the woods or even in your backyard. If you have a trampoline you can also sleep on that. 

Number 6- Take a hike.

Taking a hike is great exercise, and you get to go into nature and see birds, bees, flowers, trees, and other animals. 

Number 7- Go creeking.

When the weather gets too hot you can cool off by taking a dip in a creek. While you’re there, you can admire the bugs and animals. 

Number 8- Go on a road trip.

Going on a road trip with friends or family is the perfect pastime. You can listen to music and explore back roads and new towns. You can find new places to hang out and have fun. 

Number 9- Go to the beach.

Going to the beach is one of the classic summer activities. You can make sandcastles or drip castles, eat ice cream, and swim in the ocean. You can also surf and play beach volleyball.

Number 10- Go to Kings Island.

Another classic activity is going to Kings Island. While you are there you can ride the roller coasters, walk around with friends, and have delicious food. In the summer you can also go to the waterpark section and swim in the pool.
