10 Fun Ways to Spend a Summer Day

Have you spent countless summer days bored out of your mind? It can be hard to come up with fun ways to fill your free time, but we are here to help. Here are 10 super fun ways to spend a summer day:

10. Swimming

Head to your local pool to cool down and have fun. Don’t forget your sunscreen!


9. Bowling

Who doesn’t love bowling? Grab your friends and head to your nearest bowling alley for a great time.



8. Water Balloon Fight

If you and a few friends are bored and don’t mind getting wet, a water balloon fight is a very fun and active way to spend a hot summer day.


7. Go on a Walk

Enjoy the fresh air and get to know your city while taking a walk by yourself or with family or friends. Check out the shaded trails at a county or state park near you.


6. Go on a Bike Ride

Going for a bike ride is a fun way to get some exercise and fresh air while having fun and exploring your community. There are even organized group night rides in many cities to get a new (and cooler) view of your city at night.



5. Arts & Crafts / DIY Project

Doing arts and crafts is a great way to express your creativity while having fun and gaining a sense of accomplishment by creating something on your own. A scroll through Pinterest or a walk around a local art supply store is certain to help inspire you.


4. Go to a Museum

Check out a nearby art or history museum. Even if you’ve been there recently, it’s likely there will be new exhibits to enjoy, and walking the grounds of the museum will keep you active and engaged.



3. Try a New Restaurant

Appreciate the culture your city has to offer by heading to a local restaurant you’ve never tried before. Maybe a new restaurant just opened up that you’re excited to try, or maybe there’s cool-looking restaurant that’s been around for a while that you’ve been meaning to try.


2. See Live Music

Summer is a great time to see live music, especially at outdoor venues. Go online and see if any of your favorite artists are coming to your city, or head to a local restaurant or bar that has live music and enjoy the local talent.



1. Footgolf

“What the heck is Footgolf ?” you may be thinking. Think golf plus soccer. Stroll the grounds of a course while kicking a soccer ball into a 14” cup. The game is played exactly like golf, complete with tees, fairways, and greens. There are even bunkers and water hazards. It’s a great way to get a little exercise in and spend time with family and friends.



There may be a course near you! If you’re in Indianapolis, you can head to Shortee’s and play a round of Footgolf for just $5! Bring your own soccer ball or rent one for just $2. Shortee’s is located at 1775 E 96th St, Indianapolis, IN 46240.
