Warm-Weather Activities To Enjoy Outside

The lovely warm weather of spring beckons us to make even more use of the outdoors. If the radiant sunshine is calling to you, here are some ways to make the most of those terrific sunny days:

Walk in Nature
When a sunny day arrives, head outside and commune with nature. Take a trip to your local park, and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings as you fill your lungs with fresh air.

Go to a Sporting Event
Get tickets to a minor league game or simply attend a high school or college lacrosse tournament. Just getting outdoors to enjoy some good old-fashioned competition is what warm, sunny weather is all about!

Play a Game
Channel your inner-kid, and invite a friend or loved one to play a friendly game of one-on-one basketball. Or grab your racket and head to the tennis court to brush up on your swing and serve. Don’t even worry about keeping score, just revel in being outside!

Plan a Picnic
If you find yourself graced with a gorgeous day, pack a simple picnic and enjoy your meal outdoors. Bring a magazine or book so that after your meal, you can partake in some leisure reading.
