Top 10 Things To Do Before Summer Ends

It’s after Labor Day, which means summer is really coming to a close. With only a short time before the Autumnal Equinox take this last weekend of of summer and make the most of it!

  1. Have a picnic: Before it starts getting dark at 5 pm and you have to worry about carrying a jacket at night, bring your friends together for one last picnic before the season changes for good!
  2. Get in the water: Whether you take a boat ride around the city or soak up sun on the beach, don’t miss out on the last few days where you can wear a bathing suit outside without freezing your tushy off.
  3. Try something new: Summer is all about new experiences, be it in love or life, scratch one thing off your bucket list and make some memories you’ll never forget
  4. Go for a run: Just because summers over doesn’t mean you don’t have to stop trying to get in shape and stay healthy. Find a workout class or buddy that will keep you moving through the winter months so you won’t have to scramble to get off those last few pounds from Thanksgiving.
  5. Travel: Take a vacation, even if it’s just for a weekend, to squeeze those last few drops out of summer wanderlust that’ll tide you over until next year.
  6. Have a stoop sale: Starting a new season is similar to a new year, you should try and purge all that baggage you’ve accumulated over the last year.
  7. Eat your weight in summer fruits and veggies: There’s no shame in devouring an entire watermelon or a few ears of corn, head to your local CSA or organic section of your supermarket to load up on your favorite produce before they go out of season.
  8. Find an outdoor movie: Most cities have several chances to watch great movies on a lawn outside, usually for free, grab a date or a few friends and watch a movie under the stars.
  9. Finish a book: Put down your phone and get off Netflix, head to the beach or a nice park to relax and take a few hours to detox from the technology.
  10. Eat something fried and delicious: Check to see if there are any local fairs or festivals in your area and indulge on fried festival fare one last time before the summers over. #TreatYoSelf
