As we enter the last stretch of winter, our days become longer, and the sun begins to shine a little more. When the weather gets warmer, we find ourselves searching for the next event or activity to do.
Want to go out and enjoy the warm weather but don’t know what to do? You’ve come to the right place. Here’s a list of four springtime activities to do this weekend.
Host a Saturday Picnic
Spend your Saturday afternoon with your best friends, yummy snacks, refreshing drinks, a comfy blanket, and fresh green grass. Kick off the spring season with some delicious food items. Wagyu sliders are a great option, but don’t forget some of the best sides that go with Wagyu, such as sweet potato fries! No matter which types of food you and your friends choose, you all will have a great time relaxing under the sun.
Visit a Local Farmer’s Market
One of the best springtime weekend activities is waking up and heading to the farmer’s market. Many people have the misconception that fresh produce is the only thing that’s out there. However, you can find handmade items, antiques, and unique crafts from locally owned businesses. So you can buy fresh fruits and veggies and support your local economy.
Go to a Rooftop Bar
Although you can go to a rooftop bar any time of year, it’s always better during the warmer months. You don’t have to huddle next to the space heater or stay indoors to avoid the cold air. Enjoy a cocktail or a glass of wine surrounded by breathtaking city views. This is one of the best ways to spend time with friends or coworkers.
Stop and Smell the Roses
As snow turns into rain and rain turns into sunny days, you will start to see trees, flowers, and other plants blossoming. Take the time to stop and embrace the natural beauty around you—and literally smell the flowers. Be on the lookout for local festivals and public gardens you can visit, and maybe you’ll find a plant to bring home.
