The Ultimate Way To Shake Up Your Summer
Laura Lee - May 7, 2019

How many of us have made pacts with our best friend to make this the best summer ever? Answer: all of us. The thing is, you know how fast you’ll get bored of endless pool days, and a girl can only hit the beach for so long, you know? You’ve exhausted classic summer go-to’s over the years and you’re wondering what to do in the summer when you’re bored and want to shake it up.


Summer means warm weather and carefree living. There is nothing better than balmy night adventures with friends. You’re down for anything that comes your way. From dipping your toes in the water to chasing the ice cream truck with friends. Last year, you most definitely floated the days away on an oversized inflatable flamingo float while drinking a fruit smoothie. Obviously, those are amazing things to do this summer- arguably, no summer would be complete without doing those things. But if you’re game for something different, switch up the routine with these ideas you may not have tried out.


These ideas are unique and different enough that it’ll be like a new adventure. Get hyped! You’ve waited all year for summer and you need to keep your promise to make it the best yet.


  1. Have a picnic with the perfect sunset.



Picnics in the park is always a good idea, especially in the beautiful weather. But to make it extra special, plan a picnic with the best Instagrammable views ever. Hike someplace you know is the best spot to watch the sunset. Savor your summer faves- watermelon, hotdogs, and s’mores- all while watching the sky turn gorgeous colors.


2. You and your BFF give each other a summer Instagram challenge list.



Before summer really kicks into high-gear, come up with an Instagram challenge for your best friend and she can do the same for you. This could be fun things you know she’ll do, maybe even to get her out of her comfort zone or if there’s something she’s been wanting to do more of and needs that extra push. You can both go back to the list to inspire new fun activities.


3. Take a foodie road trip.



There is nothing better than road trips! One of the reasons why we love them is for the food you get to eat along the way that you normally wouldn’t get a chance to try. Summer is the perfect opportunity to hop in the car with your bestie, roll the windows down, and explore someplace new. Map out cute diners and make your foodie dreams come true.


4. Go fruit picking and then make a pie.



Summer is the season for fresh fruit. Find a local farm where you can pick your own fruit. Don’t forget to snap some cute pictures of you and your bestie in the fields. Then take the fruit home and have a baking party with delicious summertime recipes.


5. Explore a part of town you haven’t spent much time in.



If you don’t have the means to take a vacation this summer, plan a staycation with your BFF! Take your bikes and explore a part of your town or city that you normally don’t get a chance to check out. If you need some inspiration use Yelp or Instagram as your guide. FInd a cute cafe, find a second-hand store or vintage store, or even just that picture-perfect street.
