We're coming to the end of summer, and we hope you checked plenty of things off your bucket list! But we still don't want you to miss out any summertime goodness, so here are ten things you should do before Labor Day comes and it's back to school and back to routine.
1. Eat All The Summer Fruit
2. Go For A Swim
Whether it's the ocean, a nearby lake or river, or your local pool, make sure you get in the water and cool off at least one last time before Labor Day.
3. Stock Up At End Of Season Sales
Need we say more? Now is the best time to buy if you're in the market for new summer clothes or accessories. And you can always save it for next year! It's a great time to pick up patio furniture or a new grill as well. You'll be thanking yourself next year.
4. Schedule A Last Minute Getaway
There's nothing like a quick vacation to revive and rejuvenate yourself before heading into fall. There are plenty of last minute deals on Groupon and Living Social, or schedule a local staycation with HotelTonight.
5. Organize All Your Summer Gear
From swimsuits to water wings, getting everything sorted and packed up at the end of summer will make your future self very happy.
6. Grill All The Things
Because everything tastes better outdoors. Need some ideas? Check out these unexpected foods to throw on the grill.
7. Take A Hike
Head outside and enjoy the warm weather and whatever local scenery you've got, whether it's a cityscape, suburbia, or rural.
8. Get Summer Glam
Get all dolled up with your favorite summer look. After all, you probably can't break out the bronzer and sundresses in December, so enjoy it while it lasts. Go on a date with your partner or have drinks with your BFF in your favorite summer outfits.
9. Play Outside
You're never too old to play in the backyard or go to the park! Get in the sandbox with your kids or organize an adults-only game of softball, and reminsice about summers past when your biggest worry was getting home before the streetlights came on.
10. Soak Up The Sun
Being out in the sun offers a number of health benefits (you need your Vitamin D after all), and there's nothing like being out in the summer sunshine for a mental health boost.
We hope you've had an amazing summer already, of course, but there is still time to make it even better!
