  After a long year of homework and studying, summer seems to make up for a lot of it! Here are some activities to make summer even more enjoyable:

  1. Dress up and go out

    N. Kojo

Dress up with friends in fancy clothes and go to a casual restaurant, like Chick-fil-a or McDonalds. Do something exclusive like go with friends to The Queen’s Ball: A Bridgerton Experience in Washington DC

  1. Pool day

    E. Rabkina

    Relaxing in a chair with a fruity drink on the side is a perfect way to spend a pool day. So is doing a “Who makes the biggest splash” contest or tossing a beach ball around. 

  1. Campfire with s’mores

    T. Mierle

    Telling spooky stories by the campfire is a classic activity especially enjoyable with friends and s’mores. 

  1. Driving with the windows down

    Blasting the summer car playlist with the windows down can feel like the definition of summer. Make it a special memory by buying matching sunglasses with friends and singing all the songs together. 

  1. Have a picnic

    W. Justen de Vasconcellos

    Eating on a blanket outside? Yes please! Bring friends and possibly crafts to keep everyone busy while also having fun. Go to parks such as Blue Jay Point, Dorothea Dix, or Mount Trashmore. 

  1. Stargaze

    R. Pozniakov

Bundle up with blankets and keep a keen eye on the stars. A shooting star might just pass by!

  1. Hang out with friends

    S. Maage

    Anything is possible with friends. Attend a concert or go to an amusement park. Go to the beach for a day or just hang out at their house. No matter where, friends always bring the fun to summer!

  1. Road trip

Sometimes driving with no plans can make for a fun and enjoyable trip. Of course, driving to a favorite city

 or state is just as much fun. Stray from the plan a bit and see what happens.

  1. Go to the beach

    A. Burden

    There is so much to do at the beach, so what first? Make sure to spend time shopping on the boardwalk. Visit an aquarium or go to an arcade. Spend the whole day on the beach, tanning, playing beach volleyball, or swimming in the ocean. 


  1. Watch a sunrise/sunset
