There are plenty of activities to do once the workweek closes out and the weekend arrives. So, if you don’t want to feel as though you have wasted your time, here are five fun and entertaining ways to spend your time this weekend.
1. Go to a concert
Nothing is more exciting than seeing live music that you love. Concerts are so much fun, as the atmosphere draws out the joy in everyone. Imagine being in a room with thousands of people who all share the same love for the band or singer that you do, who all know every lyric to every song. The amount of positive energy in the room is something you need to see to fully understand and believe. The moment the artist walks out on stage, the whole crowd goes wild, and you get to see your favourite group or singer in person, sharing the moment with the entire audience.
2. Go to a sports event
Much like a concert, going to see a sporting event in person is much more exciting than watching it at home on your TV, or even in a bar. Witnessing all the drama of the plays first hand, getting riled up with the thousands of dedicated and screaming fans, and cheering when everything goes right for the home team. Wear your colours proudly, grab some tickets from websites like TicketSales.com, and head to watch the home team play or maybe try watching something new, such as an NFL football game.
3. Enjoy the outdoors
If the weather is co-operating, why not spend a day exploring the outdoors? Grab a bike and take a long bike ride along rarely travelled paths, or go for a hike you’ve been meaning to check out. If you opt for the bike ride, think about bringing a picnic or even an instrument for when you get tired or find a good spot to stop and enjoy the view. It doesn’t take much effort to put together a few easy sandwiches (maybe grab a bottle of wine to share) or cut up some summery foods like watermelon or strawberries, and you’ll be happy to have snacks on longer bike rides.
4. Have a spa weekend
Taking care of yourself is important, and the most relaxing way to do that is by heading to a spa. If you want to go big, spend the weekend at a spa getaway outside the city and fully immerse yourself in the relaxation and calming environment. Treat yourself and unwind, and you’ll thank yourself after when you feel completely rejuvenated. The only difficult part is deciding which one to go to since there are so many amazing choices.
5. Take a mini trip
If all else fails, why not just pack up and get out of town for a few days? Combine the excitement factor of enjoying the outdoors with the relaxing aspect of a spa day and take a mini trip somewhere you’ve wanted to visit for a while. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life and head to the countryside to relax and recharge, or if you’re already outside of a city, spend a weekend in the city enjoying the nightlife and all the culture there is to offer. There are so many places to go, even if you don’t have a car and are relying on the train, there’s bound to be somewhere to suit anyone’s interests.
