It’s almost here! Where warm weather days and firework-filled skies at night determine one of the best days of the year. We’re talking about 4th of July of course, also known as Independence Day. This is the day where all the friends and family come together for good food, cold drinks, and bright lights in the sky.
Here are some great 4th of July Tips/Ideas
Looking for a more cost-effective way to get all of your close compatriots together? Hosting a BBQ is a great way to do so. Make it a pot-luck event and see what your friends and family can bring to the table. This is also a good idea for those will little kids, as it keeps them within arms reach at all times and a safe place for them to roam around. Most neighborhoods have local fireworks around so there’s no doubt you can see the night skies light up regardless.
Whether it’s on the lake, near the ocean, or at a swimming pool, 4th of July days are always best spent getting wet. The summer heat is in full swing at this point, so keeping yourself close to the water at all times is a great way to stay refreshed and cool in the summer heat. Plus, most bodies of water tend to have fireworks either on a barge or nearby.
Similar to a house BBQ, going to your local park provides a great environment for friends and family to get together. Plus the atmosphere is always filled with plenty of groups of people all enjoying themselves. Most local parks will put on a firework show for people to enjoy.
Some tips to remember:
-Apply sunscreeen early and often! Summertime is no joke for the sunshine, so make sure you apply plenty of sunscreen, otherwise you’ll find yourself burnt.
-When in doubt, taxi or rideshare out! Never drink and drive, there’s a reason cabs and ubers/lyft exists, so take advantage of it if you find yourself have some cold beverages.
-Avoid holding fireworks in your hands at all costs! Even if you think you’re being safe, always set larger fireworks on the ground before lighting. The last thing you want is a trip to the ER on a fun day.
-Similar to sunscreen, drink plenty of water! Heat exhaustion in hot weather can happen faster than you think.
Looking to find a way to show your Dad how much you care? While we’re positive he’s more than happy to just hang out with you and the rest of the family, we know it feels good to show that great guy how important he is to you. While gifts are always good, we feel …
Looking to find a way to show your Dad how much you care? While we’re positive he’s more than happy to just hang out with you and the rest of the family, we know it feels good to show that great guy how important he is to you. While gifts are always good, we feel like there are fun events or activities that create even more special memories. At the end of the idea, he’ll be more likely to remember that fun day you had instead of that nice gift you gave him.
With that in mind, here are some great Father’s Day activities or events to do!
The perks of Father’s Day always being on the weekend is that it gives you a couple days to plan something special. This is the perfect opportunity to go on a family friendly camping trip to start the summer off right. Camping provides great bonding and family time, just make sure you give him a helping hand around the campsite!
If your old man loves to hit the links, this is a perfect way to give him the chance to get out there and enjoy himself. If someone else in your family loves to play as well, make sure they tag along. He can even get a round in by himself if he appreciates some alone down to relax and unwind.
Catch a Game
Baseball season is in full swing by the time Father’s Day rolls around, and if you Dad is a big fan of your local team, this is a golden opportunity to hit the ballpark. Nothing says summer like a cold beer, hot dog, and 9 innings of ball. Make it a family outing and everyone has a great day.
Dinner at His Favorite Restaurant
Is there a steakhouse that your Dad loves going to? Maybe even his favorite Mexican spot? Whatever the flavor or cuisine he enjoys, making a reservation to that restaurant is the perfect way to show that this is all about him.
Spring has sprung and with that comes warmer weather, more sunlight, and the urge to spend more time outside.

Spring has sprung and with that comes warmer weather, more sunlight, and the urge to spend more time outside. While you may be overwhelmed by the sunshine and the endless opportunities it brings, we encourage you to write down a list of your favorite activities. If you need a little jumpstart to that list, we’ve added a few ways to enjoy your spring sunshine.
Here’s What To Do This Spring
Time to dust off that tent, get your sleeping bag out of the attic and get ready for some camping. Spring time is always ideal for camping because it’s never too hot during the day and with everything in bloom, it’s sure to be a beautiful sight outdoors.
Go To The Beach
Take advantage of those random heat waves that roll through spring and get your tan on. Warm spring days at the beach get everyone excited for what’s to come. Plus playing some beach volleyball or taking a refreshing dip in the water is never a bad time.
Maybe that water is looking a little more enticing than a simple swim. If that’s the case, break out your kayak or rent one for the day. Kayaking is not only an incredible workout, but a great way to explore the water and enjoy the refreshing breeze.
If you’ve been cooped up because of snow or cold weather, it’s time to fully embrace nature and go on an adventurous hike. Depending on how ambitious you want to get, you can choose to make it a leisurely hike with a planned picnic at the top of the trail or a grueling, yet rewarding, trek to really soak in the good views.
Looking for a way to explore the water with family or friends? Rent a large canoe for the day and explore the water with some good company. Canoeing can be an easy way to get to certain parts of the lake that you may not otherwise get to without a boat.
