Here are some great ideas if you are trying to find something fun to do that isn’t super-expensive on a Friday or over the weekend!
Tour Your Town
We often take the cities we live in for granted, especially if we’ve lived there for several years. So, why not look at your town in a new way? Check it out as a tourist would! My favorite thing to do is head over to tripadvisor.com, type in the name of my city, and look at the top things to do (or see). Then find ones that are either free or cheap, add them to a list and head out this weekend to check some of them out!
Browse a Bookstore
I love Barnes and Noble as much as any bibliophile (a person who collects or has a great love of books) but I also know that many cities have unique bookstores that can be a whole lot of fun to check out! My husband and I went to one recently in Asheville and it was awesome! Nothing like B&N but totally original with tons of leather-bound volumes. Many times these bookstores have or allow drinks, so make sure you grab a coffee and spend an hour or two taking your time and finding new stories!
Head to the Park
Maybe try a park you’ve never been to before and find something fun to do! You can take a walk, go for a jog, have a picnic, play some ball, toss around a frisbee, do some yoga, or just read a book. Whatever floats your boat (who came up with that saying anyway?)! But sometimes we just need some fresh air! That’s why I’m glad my workout group meets in a park (in the early morning so no bees, yay!). I get my outdoor time in 3x a week and I’m good. *wink*
Go to a Museum
I know, I know, it sounds boring. But an important part of life, especially as an adult, is that we need to constantly learn new things! Many museums are free and others tend to be inexpensive, so why not check out a museum this weekend? Go learn about a new topic, a part of history, an interesting person, or a style of art that you may not enjoy but that you could still learn more about! Let’s keep our minds active by always learning something new!
Girls Day Out
Grab some girlfriends and go out and have an awesome day! Go to the beach, hiking, shopping, eating at a new or favorite restaurant, whatever it is that you ladies like to do! You can have a spa day or even an exercise day. But it’s important for women to spend time together, especially when we’re busy with husbands, kids, jobs, and just life in general. You need to take some time for yourselves and just let loose!
That’s all for this week! Check out next Friday where I’ll post even more fun weekend things to do!
