40 Hometown Summer Activities


June comes around and you’re either lounging on the beaches of Australia, singing If I Can’t Have You to the top of your lungs at a Shawn Mendes concert or leaving the monorail in your Mickey Mouse ears to enter Magic Kingdom. Whether you’re on summer break from uni or a two-week leave from work, summer is the season of relaxation while…dare I say the cliche line…HAVING FUN IN THE SUN! 🙂

Are you scrolling through Instagram witnessing box braids, sun-kissed bums, floral print playsuits and basically everyone living out their summer vacay right in front of you? Maybe you’re not able to make it to Bali, Dallas, Paris, Miami or Glasgow this year? Money’s tight but that’s ok! You don’t need to travel to a popular destination or stay in the most instagrammable hotel to have the best summer. Sometimes the best activities are right in your backyard.

You don’t need to spend much money to have a good time, just the joy to explore your city with your bestie or as a brave solo. Bring out your fringe tops and shorts, lick the ice cream from your waffle cone and turn that ponytail into two space buns because it’s time to start your summer adventures. I’m sharing 40 summer hometown activities to check off your list!
