During the summer months of the year, the warm weather would encourage anyone to spend their time outside having fun. There are ten outdoor activities that you can enjoy this summer to ensure you get the most out of this time of the year.

Head to the Beach

If you are looking for a way to beat the heat and enjoy some nice scenery, going to the beach is a great option. There are many beaches located along the coasts of the country but also around many different lakes throughout the Midwest. Spending an afternoon at the beach will help you get some great sun while also having fun swimming, playing beach volleyball, or simply relaxing.

Pool or Waterpark

Another great way that you can stay cool during the hottest time of the year is by heading to a local pool or waterpark. Most larger communities across the country have public pools that will allow you to go swimming with friends and family. There are also regional waterparks that are full of slides, diving boards, and other great onsite amenities.

Neighborhood Walk

While there are a lot of activities that you can enjoy that will require a day trip or longer vacation, there are others that can be completed at any time from your home. One of these options is to go on a daily walk around your neighborhood. These walks will allow you to enjoy the nice weather and get exercise while also bumping into friends and neighbors along the way.


If you enjoy nature and walking, going on a nature hike can also be a lot of fun. A long hike through nature will allow you to get some exercise and see some amazing local animals, birds, and plants. There are local hiking trails all over the country.


If you enjoy spending time outside and also want to be productive, spending a few hours per week gardening is a great option. When you garden, you can plant some pretty flowers to improve the curb appeal of your home or even have a live garden where you can grow some of your own vegetables.

Go to a Local State Park

When you are looking for a way to have fun and be active, going to a local state park is a great option. State parks, such as Hawks Nest State Park, offer a lot of fun activities including hiking, camping, and looking out for local flora and fauna.

Outdoor Concert or Festival

If you are a music fan, the summer months of the year are a great time. Throughout the summer, there are plenty of live music events that you can enjoy. These music events take place all over the country and range from small local performances all the way up to major outdoor music festivals that last a few days or more. Anyone should be able to find one that is fun and includes great live performances.

Host a Barbecue

This summer, finding ways to enjoy your time with friends and family is very important. A great way that you can do this is by hosting your very own barbecue. When you do host a barbecue, you can make some delicious food while also entertaining those that you care about.

Outside Run

Most people know that exercising is a great way to stay in shape. During the summer months, you should focus your workout plan on being active in the outdoors. One way that you can do this is by going for a fun outdoor run. This can help you burn some calories while also enjoying the fresh air.

Baseball Game

Nothing seems like more of a summer activity than going to a baseball game. Whether you have access to professional baseball or the minor leagues, there are games being played all over the country. When you do this, you can enjoy some great weather while watching a fun game.

During the summer months of the year, finding ways to spend time outside and in the sun is important. These ten activities can help to keep you active while you continue to have a lot of fun.
