With summer here many of us are wondering how we can get the most out of the longer days, warmer weather and sunny evenings. Whether this is spent with friends or family, we are all wanting to create some long-lasting memories and have a great time, after all that’s what summer is for, isn’t it? Here are our following top tips to enjoy summer this year.
Go on a Road Trip
Spend quality time with your friends and see more of the beautiful countryside or explore some different cities by planning a few days away on a road trip. Why not take a spacious car and drive Route 66 around Scotland?
The route runs through traditional Scottish towns, such as Inverness-shire, Ross and Cromarty, Sutherland and Caithness. Bring a tent or pre-book a camp site, as it may get busy in summer and you don’t want to miss out on the best places!
Do up the Garden
Now is the perfect time to spend some time outdoors improving your garden, and doing those jobs you have been putting off all winter. Whether this is trimming the hedge, planting that new rose bed or laying down a patio – there are plenty of home improvements that you can make that can transform your space into something you are proud of.
Turn your garden into the perfect place to entertain and host parties, or spend summer afternoons relaxing in the sun with a glass of gin!
Exploring your local area is a great way to get to know the area that you are living in better, and meet other members of your community. Not only this, it can be a great way of exercising such as starting to do a morning run or a gentle walk after dinner – this can help improve not only your physical health but also your mental health.
Book Days Out
Why not try to plan ahead and book days out to go places that you have missed when the weather was rubbish. Think summer activities – like attending your local theme park, a long walk at a nature reserve, some highly rated museums or even a day at the beach can be a great way to unwind and relax.
Planning these in advance will not only ensure that you get the best price, but that your friends and family are more likely to be free to attend with you as well! After all, summer is a busy time for everyone so try not to leave plans to the last minute – this can also give you something to look forward to!
