1. Exercise on the Beach
Exercising on the beach has got to be one of the most rewarding forms of exercise! You're doing good for your body PLUS you have the most gorgeous view. Even a simple walk on the beach is so great and refreshing. Best part is you can get a refreshing dive in the ocean afterwards to cool off. Bonus points if you wake up and do it at sunrise.
2. Go Stargazing
Get away from the bright lights of the city and go see the beautiful summer night sky in its full glory! Drive as far away from civilization as possible, the darker the better. Bring a pillow and blanket, light music, and your favorite person and you've got the perfect night ahead of you.
3. Take a Road Trip
Summer road trips with your besties have been the most looked forward to thing to do over summer for generations! Nothing beats being on the road with your friends on your way to who knows where and just experiencing everything you may stumble across on the way. Crank up the music, load the snacks, and take advantage of the world around you!
4. Have a Sunset Picnic
What are two of lives greatest joys? Sunsets and food!! Combine the two and you can't lose. Top it off with a bottle of wine and you will experience pure bliss.
5. Head to the Markets
Farmers markets are the go to place over summer! You will never see more beautiful produce, flowers, and art than any other time. Grab your floppy hat and basket and take a stroll.
6. Go Springs Hunting
As soon as the sun comes out, its time to seek out some refreshing waters. Florida is full of natural, beautiful springs that will cool you off and make you speechless. Crystal clear waters, lush trees and vegetation, manatees, and a couple of tubes...tell me something better.
7. Join a Yoga Class on the Beach
Summer is all about relaxing, renewing, and destressing and yoga on a beautiful beach is the perfect way to achieve that! See if there is a local class taking place or just grab a group of friends and do your own. I took a sunset yoga class recently with a friend and it was so rejuvenating. This is one you surely won't regret.
8. Go Skating
If you've never been skating before, this is the time to learn! Pick up some blades from a secondhand store and find a park with sidewalk trails. Its a great form of exercise while also being super relaxing. You'll be a pro before you know it!
9. Go Cliff Jumping
Looking for some real adventure? This is a for sure way to pump that adrenaline and catch a thrill! Gather your friends and all your courage and find something high (and safe) to jump off of into water. Trust me, bridge jumping will suffice just as well.
10. Camp in the Middle of Nowhere
Pack your tent, a sleeping bag, and a backpack full of snacks and head off for the wilderness! There is nothing like waking up to birds chirping and a beautiful sunrise fully immersed in nature.
