Which Is the Best Way to Spend Your Summer Holidays?


Don't waste the warm weather the summer brings. It is the season for outdoor activities which can be difficult in the colder months. And with schools out there is plenty of family bonding time. So take some time off from work, round up the family, get out of the house and enjoy the beautiful summer weather.

The Great Outdoors

  • Sports are at the top of the list of outdoor activities. Little League Baseball/Softball, Soccer and Pop-Warner Football are all summer sports for the kids. Many cities and towns have leagues for adults as well as children. Adult softball, basketball and touch football are some popular summer adult leagues. If there are no leagues in your area, Craigslist's community forum is a great way to organize pick up games. And the summer's long daylight hours mean more time to play.

    Hiking and camping are fun and adventurous activities that are best enjoyed in the summer. The strong bonding and team spirit attitude of both camping and hiking make them great for families. The best spots for camping and hiking are, without doubt, the country's National Parks.

    The beach and water sports are irresistible in the summer months. If the coast or a lake is not near by, why not organize a road trip to them. Being on, in, and sometimes under the water is the definition of summer fun, not to mention the great exercise water sports provides. Boating goes hand in hand with the beach and water sports and the earlier the boat goes in the water the better. Don't wait until mid-summer to begin work on it, rather begin making it sea worthy in May so it will be in the water early June and is used throughout the summer. It is not worth having a boat if it is put in the water in August and taken out in September.

Summer Eating

  • Summer is the best season to buy locally grown fruits and vegetables. If there is a farmer's market nearby, go to it. Buy locally and if available, organic. It may cost a little more, but the difference in taste is remarkable. Fresh summer produce includes: squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, strawberries, corn, broccoli and many others. And with the kids out of school and the warm weather, it is also the best time to create an outdoor family feast.

Take Some Time

  • Summer is a perfect time to take some time off. Not only can you participate in great outdoor activities, but with schools out it is ideal to spend time with the family. So save those vacation days for the warmer months ahead.
