5 Fun Outdoor Trips to Take With Your Friends This Summer

Summer means warm weather, which should be taken advantage of. Getting outside in the sun is good for you, and it provides plenty of time to hang out with your friends. After being stuck inside all winter, you should look for opportunities to perform fun activities outside with your friends. Here is a list of five activities that you and your friends can do this summer to take advantage of the warm weather.


Golfing is an activity that can occupy a couple of hours of your day. It is a great way to get outside and chill out with your friends. This activity does require some equipment, such as golf clubs. Buying your own golf clubs can be rather expensive, but some golf courses will allow you to rent clubs if you need to.

Also, if you are of the legal drinking age you can enjoy some alcoholic beverages on the golf course. Golfing is a great way to relax and hang out with friends, while you compete against one another.



Concerts and festivals are a great way to spend a night, or collection of nights, outdoors listening to music. Getting a group of people to go to a concert and listen to some music is a lot of fun. However, it is rather expensive. Going to concerts of big-name artists can be a bit expensive, but if you love the music it is well worth it.

Some of the popular festivals around the world are Coachella, Tomorrowland, Rolling Loud, and Lollapalooza. These festivals have thousands of people at them every year, which makes it a great place to spend time with current friends and make new friends.



Paintballing is a fun and competitive way to spend some time with your friends. Depending on what you and your friends like to do, this could be a great way to mess around with your friends. Going to a paintball course and being able to shoot balls of paint at each other could be a great way to let off some steam.

Airsoft guns do not need a course or special place to play with them. Airsoft guns can be used in your backyard, but you will need to be careful because airsoft guns can be dangerous.

If you and your friends are going to be using them in your backyard, then you should be wearing protective gear and eyewear.


Water Parks/Adventure Parks

Water parks are a great way to spend time during the summer. The cold water is a great way to cool off during the summer, and there are a lot of people around. You can make new friends while at water parks, and you can spend time there with your current friends. Water parks also have fun slides which can give it the feel of an amusement park.  Some popular water parks around the United States are Disney’s Blizzard Beach, St Barts Yacht Charters, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor and Adventure Island.

Amusement parks have the same attraction as water parks, but there are a lot more rides and much less water. Amusement parks are known for their roller coasters, some of which are water-themed.


Visit A Nature Resort

A nature resort could be a great place for you and your friends to take a vacation. You can find a fun resort to stay at in your area or if you wish to visit a different state going to a resort in that area can be a great way to explore a new place in style. Just search where you want to go, for instance, you might search for Gatlinburg cabins and resorts if you are looking to stay in Tenessee. Some of the best nature resorts in the country Include Big Cedar Lodge, Tenaya Lodge and Gateway Canyons.



All these activities are a great way for you and your friends to get outside and enjoy the summer weather. While some of these activities are more expensive than others, there are also plenty of opportunities to do fun activities for no cost at all. The most important part is that you and your friends are together.
