25 Ways for Celebrating Summer
I am so excited to be joining Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home and 20 other bloggers sharing a Summer Celebration! For me, there are so many ways for a celebration that I am sharing 25 ways to celebrate summer!
School may be starting in some parts of the country, but there is plenty of summer left! There is more than a month left, so here are 25 ideas for celebrating summer! I promise there is not one back-to-school or get ready for fall idea on here! Grab the family or friends, or both! Celebrate summer while it is still here!
1. Get to the beach
One more day at the beach is a great way to celebrate summer before it is gone! If you don’t have a beach near you, how about a local lake or river?
Beginning tonight, you have 39 more evenings to light the fire pit and toast some marshmallows to make this classic summertime treat!
3. Visit a National Park

4. Celebrate with lemons and limes
Some people are crazy for sweet tea, but others love lemonade. Get all lemon and limey by setting a colorful summer table celebrating the tart and the sweet!
5. Make homemade ice cream
Is there a better way for celebrating summer than ice cream? You can find my family’s ice cream recipe at Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.
6. Fly a kite
7. Enjoy being outdoors
No matter if it is a walk through the woods, through your neighborhood, or just sitting on the front porch, getting outside is one of the real joys of celebrating summer.
8. Host a beach ball bash
9. Read a book
Before school begins, or just the hustle and bustle of fall and all of the holidays in the upcoming months, take the time to sit down and enjoy a book!
10. Go apple picking
Apple picking begins as early as the last couple of weeks of August! Get a head start on apple season while summer weather still makes it a treat! What to do with all of those apples? Here are 30 delightful apple recipes!
11. Go for a bicycle ride
12. Dine outdoors
13. Make a driftwood sailboatWant the tutorial on these cute sailboats? Find it at Gather Driftwood on Your Summer Vacation.
14. Make something with seashells

15. Spend time outdoors
16. Play in the sprinkler
17. Visit a farmer’s market
18. Host a Dog Days of Summer Party
Are you feeling like it is the “dog days of summer”? If so, celebrate all things dogs with your own Dog Days of Summer Party!
19. Watch a movie outdoors
Check your local community center or library for outdoor movie times and locations. Gather up the lawn chairs and blankets (don’t forget the bug spray)! My favorite way to keep the mosquitos at bay is with a Thermacell Portable device!
20. Play a sport OR watch a game
It might be golf, a kickball game, head out to a major or minor league or even a local pick up game
21. Go boating
Don’t have a boat? Find somewhere near you to rent a boat or kayaks and get out on the water before summer is gone!
22. Take a road trip
I don’t know what is near you, but for me, one of my favorite places to visit is Charleston! Maybe it is a day, maybe a weekend, it doesn’t matter, pack up the family and head out to a favorite spot, or someplace you have never been before!
23. Go to a waterpark
24. Go fishing
25. Cook lobsters on the grill
It is so easy to cook lobsters on the grill! Check out my recipes and How to Host a Lobster Dinner!
