and the list goes on…
16. Go to yard sales. Take all that money you made at your yard sale and cruise around your town together looking for cool stuff. Maybe you could even fix something up and resell it.
18. Go camping.
19. Find some cool trails around your town and go hiking.
21. Dig out the old croquet set — or borrow your Mom’s — and play croquet. Do it! Totally fun. And hilarious. My mom kicked my butt last summer.
23. Go on a walking tour of your town. Most towns or cities have a historic district. Find out if there is a walking tour available. If not, make one up!
24. Scavenger hunt. Put your friends to the test — yes, this is for grown-ups — to find different things in your city…like a certain bike rack, a vintage sign, that sort of thing. The winner gets a dinner cooked by the losers.
25. Find out when the free days are at your local museum or zoo. Most have them and they can be great fun to visit with friends.
26. Hold a quilting bee. No, you don’t have to be fancy — or old — for this. Grab some old T-shirts that you love, old jeans, whatever. Cut them into squares and sew them together. Who knows? Maybe it will become a regular thing?
27. Go to Open Mic night. Your town is likely harboring some great talent at an open mic night that has no cover and cheap drinks!
28. Go to a festival. Most towns host festivals of all kind for fun, to build community and for a cause. If you’re in KW, this Saturday is the Summer Lights Festival.
29. Find a swimming hole. Head to the old town swimming hole — or find a new one. What a great way to spend a lazy afternoon with friends.
30. Start a book club, card club, sewing club or scrapbooking club. Something you and your friends like. A cooking club could be cool too where once a month all of their friends gather at one house and the host people cooked a meal from a different country.
