Fun Things To Do In The Summer


With summer coming up right around the corner, many of you are probably making plans or thinking of fun things to do. Because it is such a short season, it is so easy to forget how to enjoy those lovely few months. One second summer is here and just a simple blink later, it is autumn again and the leafs are no longer green or on the tree. So, let’s make this summer a memorable one shall we? Below are just a few of the infinite amount of things you can do during this season


If you are not scared of heights or water, then I can almost guarantee you that you will absolutely LOVE parasailing. It was definitely one of the best experiences of my life. Just being up in the air, relaxing and floating in air is a feeling hard to explain unless you experience it. Besides that, to be dipped in the middle of the ocean is like a cherry on top. I suggest that you add parasailing to the top of your list for this summer.

Horseback Riding

Although I don’t believe that horseback riding is a summer activity, I think it is definitely something you should try out this summer. Honestly, I think that horseback riding has a different taste in each season. In the fall it is nice to go on a trail with a group of people whereas in the summer, a semi private or even a private guide would be amazing. Just picture yourself riding through a creek on a horse in a summer day with the love of your life while the sun shines on your lovely face and your hair flowing through the air..Maybe I got a little bit carried away, but you got the point.

Jet Skiing

I personally am very scared to go on a jet ski by myself but if it is with my boyfriend or even just another friend, I am up for it! It is just a fun activity to do in a hot summer day. However, I suggest that you drive a bit far from New York, because jet skiing in New York is not as fun as New Jersey or Philadelphia.


This is on the top of my list for this summer! I have never gone camping by myself but heard so many positive things from friends, coworkers and many others. I think it is an experience that everyone should have at least once in their lifetime, so I will make sure I experience it this summer.

Theme Parks

You cannot complete your summer without going to at least one theme park at least once during the few months! My personal favorite is Splish Splash since I am the water ride type of a person but there are so many more! Make sure to plan a day with a group of fun friends to get the most fun out of it.

Brooklyn Bridge

Now who can forget a romantic walk on the Brooklyn Bridge on a lovely summer evening? Try watching the sunset; it is one of the most beautiful things you will ever experience. I personally like to hang out at the South Street seaport for a while and then walk back to the bridge.

Banana Boating

This is another one of those things that are on the top of my list for this summer. Last summer I almost went banana boating, but it did not happen so this summer I will make sure I make it happen. I think it will be super fun since I love all sort of water activities!

Highland Park 

Is it one of those days where you want to hangout with friend or your significant other but you do not know what to do or where to go and at the same time you feel extremely lazy? Why don’t you grab a late lunch from any of the awesome restaurants in the meat packing districts and then take a stroll on the Highland Park! It is such a peaceful place even if you just want some time to yourself. Sometimes if you are lucky, you might even get to catch a free movie that is playing. Also if it gets too hot, you can grab a drink or even some ice cream from all the different little food shops nearby.

I hope I was able to give you some ideas on how to spend this beautiful summer and if you have other ideas, please let me know. I hope you guys enjoy the summer!
