If you live in an area like me, you’re definitely ready for the summer to come. I’m a big fan of doing physical activities outside as it makes it more adventurous and fun, but the brutal cold weather can sometimes get in the way of doing so.
Luckily, warmer weather is right around the corner! For you, it might even already be here.
Below are three free summer activities that you should try doing outside this summer.
I used to be an avid rollerblader when I was little, and I recently decided to get into it again. Rollerblading is semi-free, but you will have to invest in rollerblades and safety gear if necessary. However, you might already have a pair of rollerblades. If you don’t, you can find them for fairly cheap at secondhand stores and at sports stores usually. Check out secondhand sports stores for great values!
I love rollerblading because I not only get an amazing workout for my legs, but I believe it works all other parts of the body as well. I have to constantly hold in my core and make sure I keep balance. You can also go on different paved trails and experience a little scenery all for free.
2. Hiking/Trail Running.
This has to be one of my favorite free activities to do outside. No matter where you live, there is most likely a trail nearby. I’m lucky enough to live in an area that is surrounded by trails and will take some time to complete all of them! I have also seen plenty of trail runners around. I plan on sticking to simply hiking the area at a slower place so I can soak up all of the scenery, then I plan on doing more trail running later on.
There is an app called AllTrails that can definitely help you out. Not only do they tell you about all of the trails nearby, but this phone app will also tell you about almost all of the important details you need to know. It will also let you check out the reviews from other hikers and some advice/tips they would give to hikers who have never been on the trail.
There are a range of museums to choose from depending on where you live. The great thing about museums is they can sometimes be free, depending on what kind of museum it is. There are also museums that are free on Tuesdays or other days of the week, so make sure to check. Certain museums will give you a student discount as well.
Do you participate in any of the activities I mentioned above? What other activities would you recommend?
