2. Potluck! Call up a few friends and make a backyard/balcony/rooftop party. Do an easy, fun theme, such as “Last Chance to Wear White” or create a soul food menu and play Al Green’s Greatest Hits the whole day. Don’t forget the cards and dominoes!
3. Take a scenic drive to someplace you’ve never been, such as a nature preserve, trail, or historic site, located within 50 miles of where you live. You might be delighted to discover a hidden gem in your own back yard.
4. Visit a train museum near you to learn some fascinating history and perhaps take a ride that’s fun for kids of all ages.
5. Do a “Day Camp”. Have all the fun for half the work. Pack a cooler, blanket, awning or simple tent and head to the local park. Bring games, food, music, crafts, books, and beverages – then pack it all up by evening and head home!
