The weather is about to break and cabin fever will finally be over. With the end of winter comes the start of spring. It’s time for shorts, short sleeve shirts and sundresses. No more winter depression to keep you down and stuck inside. Below are the Top 10 Things to do to get your ass outside during spring.
Whether you are cooking for yourself or eating out, what’s better than sitting outside and enjoying the weather over your favorite meal? If you’re at home, you better go get that propane tank filled and clean off the grill. If you’re a restaurant, make sure you offer outdoor seating – people will leave your restaurant for the nearest outside seating option.
Who doesn’t like a nice cold beer (or mixed drink) on a gorgeous day? Whether you’re at a concert, festival, BBQ, or block party, day drinking is one of the most popular things to do during spring.
I don’t care what anyone says, no one actually enjoys going to the gym – especially getting on the treadmill. Spring weather allows everyone to get outside and get fit – jogging, biking, softball, basketball, yoga or whatever it may be, spring weather allows you to do it all outside.
The Dog Park
Nothing makes an owner (mother or father) happier than getting their dog out of the house / apartment after a long winter and getting to the dog park. Dogs get to enjoy the company of their friends, wrestle around, play and just be dogs. The dog park also wears them out so much they sleep peacefully for hours while dreaming about going back the next day! The dog park is one of my favorite places in the spring for me and my baby.
Find a lounge chair or place in the sun, and pull out favorite book or catch up on office work your boss has been nagging you to finish.
For fans of hookahs – smoking outside is supposedly very enjoyable.
This is one of my favorite things to do in the spring. Whether you get a bench on the Boardwalk or in a park (I suggest Rittenhouse Square) it’s amazing the kinds of people you’re going to see.
What’s better than getting in your favorite lounge chair or hammock and just nodding off? Love me a good afternoon nap outside.
Take a Joy Ride
If you have a convertible you know exactly what I am talking about. Top down, wind in your hair, and out on the open road can make for a very nice spring day.
Landscaping and Gardening
The warm weather gives you the opportunity to get your hands dirty and smell the flowers.
