Spend 1 Day in 3 Cheap Ways

“Sunshine, sunshine, it’s fine
I feel it in my skin, warming up my mind,
Sometimes you gotta give in to win,
I love the days when it shines, whoa let it shine”  -Atmosphere

One of the best parts about summer is the feeling of sweet sunshine warming your soul. It’s the time of year to take advantage of outdoor adventures. It’s a little bit harder to get out of the house in the frigid winter, but all anybody needs to have a good day in the season of sunshine is an open door to the outside world.

Pack a picnic and head to the beach!

No beach close to you? Think again. Just because it’s not the ocean, doesn’t mean the lake or river can’t supply the same essence of a real beach. Close your eyes, hear the waves or flow of the river. Now that’s tranquility for the price of next to nothing

Bust out that cooler that’s been gathering dust in the closet, and pack it with wraps and a few snacks to munch on as you soak up those sweet rays. Don’t forget margarita materials, or a favorite canned brew to really take the edge off.

Spend the afternoon at the disc golf course.

It’s like golf, but better. The courses are free, and you don’t need a tee time. It’s dog friendly. It’s fun and the best part is that it’s easy to learn! Not everyone can pick up a golf club and make a good swing at a little white ball. But just about anyone can throw a frisbee. Even if you don’t own discs, you can find them for less than $10 online or at local sports stores. If that’s too much, you can even buy a cheap frisbee and go for it!

Gather wood for a campfire with marshmallows and a few friends.

Nothing says summer nights like a classic night spent around a campfire. All your senses will be heightened with the sight of flickering flames, smell of burning oak, taste of perfectly browned marshmallows and the sound of laughter from good company. Nothing beats free fun like a campfire.

Once everyone has quieted down, enjoy the sweet lullaby a campfire sings.
