In our continuous goal to provide you with the motivation and inspiration you need to live your life to its fullest, today we have a fun list of things to do before the dog days of summer are gone!
1. Rent a canoe or kayak
There are plenty of rivers and lakes in this area, along with plentiful resources for renting canoes and kayaks!
It is likely that you are just a drive away from quality time out on the water.
2. Check out local and regional forest preserves
Search your county for “forest preserves” using a reputable search engine, and you should find a comprehensive list of natural sanctuaries to walk, bike, bird-watch, picnic, and just generally enjoy!
3. Find a festival
College Park and its surrounding cities are a hot spot for all kinds of festivities! Enjoy some libations, grab amazing food, discover new art, meet local vendors and merchants, listen to music, and more.
4. Dine farm-to-table
Georgia knows its farms. Lately, there’s been an inpouring of farm-to-table restaurants popping up (these distinctive dining spots offer up locally sourced food on their menus).
Seek out one of these dinner spots, or even better: Locate a farm that hosts dinners on site.
5. Participate in a treasure hunt
Are you familiar with the term geocaching? Gaining popularity over the past few years, geocaching is where people conceal items and the log their coordinates online at geocaching.com.
You can find these coordinates on the website and then head out on an adventure to find it. Once you locate the treasure, you sign and date the log.
You could even create your own geocache! (According to the site, there are over 2.6 million geocaches around the globe!)
6. Watch a movie outdoors
Drive-in movies aren’t a thing of the past!
Grab some snacks, get out under the stars and watch a movie 1950’s style.
Whatever you do, be sure you’re making some time to relax, unwind, spend time with your loved ones and enjoy all the amazing things life has to offer!
