weekend ideas

It's Friday! 

Have any plans? 

Other then the Super Bowl on Sunday, I have no idea what we are doing, and looking for new ideas all the time.

Here are few ideas from Christina Johnson. 

Fresh Ideas for Weekend Fun

Article submitted by Christina Johnson


Weekends spent in front of the T.V. quickly lose their luster.  Get out of the house and add some excitement to your life.  Keep reading to learn about lots of fun things to do over the weekend.  


Check out a Festival

From crafts to food to cultural celebrations, most cities and towns hold at least one annual festival.  Stop by a local festival for live music, interesting food, games, demonstrations, fun decorations, a great atmosphere, unique products, freebies and much more.


Take a Hike

Visit a state or national park, or a nature preserve, for great hiking opportunities.  Most parks offer multiple trails with varying distances and levels of difficulty, making this a great activity for almost anyone.  Go in the autumn for views of the fall foliage, or hike in the spring to check out wild flowers and other blooming plants.  Some parks also offer trails with great views, historic sites, waterfalls and other attractions  


Listen to the Music

Many bars, restaurants and coffee shops offer live music on weekends.  Depending on where you go, you can hear everyone from a well-known local band to an artist who is just starting out.  Open mike nights are a great place to check out some lesser-known musicians.  


Visit the Farmer’s Market

Check out fresh, local produce while getting out into the community with weekend farmer’s markets.  Often morning markets sell breakfast treats, like coffee and pastries, along with the healthier stuff.  While you’re there, pick up some tasty ingredients for your meals during the rest of the week.


Go on an Art Walk

Many communities offer art walks on Friday or Saturday nights once a month.  On these nights, art galleries, museums and other business that display art stay open late.  They often offer wine and cheese to art walk participants as well.


Hit the Water

In the warmer months, parks with lake or river access often offer kayak, canoe or paddle boat rentals.  You can rent everything you need, including a paddle and a life jacket, to enjoy a few hours exploring a local body of water.
