Simple Ways to Enjoy the Summertime While it Lasts

With only a month left of summer, there is still so much to still do! Enjoy the continuous, warm summer nights and celebrate summertime with some of these to-dos.

Take a long, relaxing walk – Whether alone, with friends, or a pet, nothing beats a nice evening walk.  Walking has many health benefits- including reducing stress.  Seek some nearby bike paths, trails and lookouts!

Have a backyard bonfire – As temperatures begin to drop and evenings get cooler, campfires make the perfect night activity!  Remember, August 10th is National S’more’s Day! Be sure to make the most of it and stock up on marshmallows!

Look for local Farmer’s Markets – For a relaxing day, look at some fresh veggies, fruits, crafts and more at a local farmer’s market or craft show! Use what you picked up to make a delicious summer recipe or buy a gift for someone special. Check online for more information.

Attend a Baseball Game – There are so many things to do at a baseball game.  The experience is full of fun, food, company…and baseball!  Check if a local college team is playing or head to Boston to catch the Red Sox! You never know, you may snag a fly ball!

Attend a tailgate or concert – Grab a group of friends and head to a local concert or street performance!  Most of these shows are free and offer a variety of entertainment options. There are many local bands showcasing their work throughout the summer!  The Xfinity Center in Hartford, CT hosts many concerts outdoor.  Be sure to get tickets in advance.

Chill out with an ice-cream treat – Nothing beats eating a nice cold, ice cream on a warm, summer night!  Whether in a cup or on a cone, stop by a local shop for a tasty treat!

Find a special way to enjoy the little things and the remainder of your summer.
