Summer is the perfect time to make good on your bucket lists, New Year’s Resolutions, and goals. With warmer weather, longer days, and more time on your hands, there is no better time to get out of the house and do some fun outdoor activities that will keep you active.
Hiking is an outdoor activity that pretty much anyone can conquer. Typically, it costs nothing and requires zero skill. If you’re wondering how to start hiking, simply pick a local trail, throw on a pair of comfy shoes, and start walking. No matter where you live, there is bound to be a walking trail, forest preserve, or national park you can hike through.
Want to step it up a bit? Hiking can accommodate all skill levels or desires for activity. If you live in a mountainous region like Colorado, you can scale to new heights! There are so many resources for choosing a trail to your skill level and determining what gear you need to get going.
The Flexibility of Disc Golf
A popular group activity for all ages, but especially popular in people in their 20s and 30s is disc golf. You can find national and local disc golf leagues and play competitively if you’re looking to get more serious. However, most parks — and even many college campuses — have disc golf courses set up. The game works as a combination of frisbee and golf. This is a fun activity to meet new people or get old friends together and work up a sweat.
The newest craze hitting the nation is pickleball. This racket-based game is similar to tennis but combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong together for a social, but active game. New pickleball courts and leagues are being added everywhere, so check with your local park district for courts near you. No matter your level of athleticism, you’re sure to find some enjoyment in this newest fad!
Not so sure about team sports or getting deep into nature? Yoga is a perfect activity that anyone can take part in. During the summer months, yoga can be enjoyed under the warm sun or in a breezy park. If the weather turns cooler or rainy, it can easily be transferred indoors as well.
Yoga is a fun thing to do outside because you can do it in groups or by simply following along with a YouTube video. This easy outdoor activity can also be taken in so many different directions. Some yoga classes add furry friends like goats or cats to their program, while others base their meditation and movement on fantasy adventures like Harry Potter.
