Ladies and Gentlemen, it's official – Summer has finally arrived! It’s that time of the year when you can wear your favorite t-shirt, enjoy the warmth of the sun, and grab a Slurpee from 7/11! The first day of summer is always something special, and it’s only fair that we treat it as such. In this blog post, we’re going to explore some of the fun things you can do to celebrate the first day of Summer!
1. Go to the beach
It's not surprising that the beach is always at the top of everyone's list when it comes to summer activities. There's something about the sea, the sand, and the sun that just screams "summer." Grab your sunscreen, your towel, and some snacks, and head to the beach with your friends or loved ones. You can swim, build sandcastles, or just relax under the sun.
2. Have a BBQ
What better way to kick off the summer season than by having a barbeque? Dust off your grill, invite your friends, and get ready to enjoy some mouth-watering burgers, hot dogs, and grilled veggies. Don't forget to have some refreshing drinks and desserts on hand too! If you live in Northwest AR, there is no other place to go than Wright's BBQ in Johnson. Go check it out!
3. Plan a road trip
If you have a day off from work, why not take a road trip to somewhere nearby? It could be an adventure to a national park or a vineyard. Pack some snacks, a few essentials, and hit the road with your friends or significant other. You can listen to your favorite tunes and have some quality bonding time.
4. Try a new ice cream flavor
Another great way to enjoy the first day of summer is to hit up your local ice cream shop. Instead of heading for your usual go-to flavor, why not try something new? If you love chocolate, give mint chip or pineapple a try. If you love vanilla, give rocky road a spin. Take a chance on flavors you may not have tried before!
5. Have a movie marathon
If you're not in the mood to go outside, you can still enjoy the first day of summer indoors. Spend the day with your significant other or friends and have a movie marathon. Pick some of your favorite summer-themed movies and snuggle together under a blanket with some popcorn and candy. Movies like Dirty Dancing, Jaws, Jurassic Park, and Independence Day are perfect for setting the summer mood!
The first day of summer only comes once a year, so it's vital to make the most of it. Whether you prefer to spend the day in the great outdoors or just have a lazy day indoors, there are endless ways to enjoy the sunshine and warmth. We hope that our list of ideas has given you some inspiration for your summer celebration. Happy Summer!
