1. LOCAL CITY EVENTS

If you live in a busy city, you’re in luck because there is destined to be many events that you can attend. Majority of these events are either really affordable or even free. There are activities that suit everyone to farmers markets and fairs to block parties.

2. PICNICS

All you really need is a blanket and some snacks, which can be very cheap to make or buy. It’s not necessary to spend lots of money in order to have a great picnic, just find a good spot at a nearby park, enjoy the weather, and catch up with your friends.

3. PHOTO SHOOT WITH FRIENDS

Finding cool spots around your town and city to take photos is a fun way to explore and it creates memories that you can either use to decorate your bedroom walls or update your Instagram feed.

4. GO ON A HIKE

Spending time outdoors during the summer is almost inevitable since the greenery just looks much more appealing to the eye. Of course walking is free and there are many places you can go on a hike no matter where you live. Being surrounded by a bit of nature can give your mind a break and is a good way to take advantage of the great weather.

5. MOVIE NIGHTS

For days that you aren’t feeling your best or if the weather isn’t on your side, you can plan a movie night with your friends by creating a movie marathon with your favourite films. You can even get creative with it and build a fort out of blankets and fairy lights.
