Summer is winding down. We have just a little over a month before the official last day of summer (September 23rd). Therefore, we need to soak it in before it’s gone and we’re left wishing for warmer, sunnier days! One of my favorite ways to enjoy a sunny summer day is with a girl friend or two. Whether it’s a full day activity or short get together for a quick catch up. Either way, it’s quality time I value.
In my opinion, Saturday’s may be for the boys but sunny summer days were made for the girls! If you agree, below you’ll find five end of summer activities to do with your girl friends before the season is over. Both full day activities and short little get togethers – so no matter what your calendar allows you get in some girl time!
5 things to do with your girl friends before summer’s over
Spend an Afternoon River Tubing
My girl friend and I were actually just talking about how we need to do this past weekend. This is such a fun way to spend the afternoon with some of your best pals while soaking in the sun. You can tie up to one another and spend the whole day chatting! Just don’t forget to reapply the sunscreen often!
Be sure to pack a cooler as well! Load one up with all of your favorite drinks, a couple of snacks, and sandwiches or subs for lunch. Lots of places that offer river tubing have smaller tubes you can attach to your tube and place the cooler in. Pretty genius if you ask me!
Hit the Farmer’s Market for Breakfast & Fresh Produce
This is a must before the farmer’s market season is over! Aside from amazing fresh produce from local farms, so many now have several food trucks that set up shop during the market hours. So make your farmer’s market trip a full on Saturday morning date with your girl friend(s) – pick up all the ingredients you need for the weekend ahead and grab breakfast + coffee together.
Visiting the farmer’s market is a great way to support local, enjoy the sunshine, and catch up with friends. You all may inspire each other to try different produce or a new recipe with the items you pick up!
Visit a Winery/Vineyard
The perfect activity for an afternoon with the gals! Similar to breweries, wineries/vineyards are popping up everywhere. So there is bound to be at least one in close proximity to you. More often than not wineries/vineyards offer tours, samplings, and have a wide selection of tapas or a full menu. Not to mention, a beautiful atmosphere to enjoy.
Make it an event and dress the part with pretty sundresses, straw hats, and cute sandals or flats – you may be walking in the vineyards and if you do, you’ll instantly regret heels or wedges.
Go for a Walk in the Park
An easy and free way to get together! Taking a walk in the morning or evening (afternoons are typically too hot) is the perfect way to get in a few extra steps while catching with your best girl friend(s). Find a spot that’s new to you both, a favorite, or conveniently located between the two of you. Leave your phones in your pocket or bag (if you’re carrying one) and truly enjoy this quality time you have together!
Spend the Day at the Pool
A obvious choice for summer but we all need to be squeezing in as many pool days as possible before they’re over! Make plans this weekend to spend the day by the pool with a group of your girl friends. Bring lots of food and drinks to enjoy. Lots of sunscreen to pass around as well! Maybe a game or two or magazine to share. Spend the afternoon relaxing, catching up, and gaining a little extra color!
