Travel plans and parties might bbe canceled, but summer treks on. You can enjoy the sunny days while practicing safe and responsible social distancing. From lazing around your corner of the fishing pond to camping out in your own backyard, there’s still classic summer fun for you to have this season. If you need ideas to make the most out of these next few months, check out these three ways to enjoy summer while social distancing.
Have a Picnic
Be honest: when was the last time you actually packed a basket and blanket and headed out for a delicious meal beneath the sun? If It’s been too long, now’s your chance to start picnicking again. Whether you’re laying out your feast in your front yard or venturing to an empty corner of your local park, picnics are a great way to soak up the sun and spend quality time with other members of your household.
Luckily, coronavirus hasn’t taken away our ability to enjoy some quiet time beside the water. You can still spend some relaxing hours alone with the fish. If you’re tired of your usual spot, you can even venture out to the incredible lakes or rivers at your local parks. For example, if you live in Colorado, you can explore some of the most iconic fishing spots throughout the national, state, and local parks. Many states are slowly reopening natural areas, so make sure you check a park’s availability before you head out. In addition, always practice social distancing rules when you come across other fishers.
Make Your Own Aquatic Fun
Your favorite waterparks might be closed, but why should that stop you from having fun? One of the easiest ways to enjoy summer while social distancing is to enjoy aquatic fun in your own yard. Fill up your water guns and balloons and have a water war in your front yard. You can also set up the sprinklers or simply go crazy with the garden hose. You don’t need expensive equipment or park passes to beat the heat this summer.
