You’ve worked hard all year, and now that summer is here, you want to enjoy your time off with your friends and loved ones. You might not have time nor funds to travel to a faraway destination, but at same time, thought of more barbeques and museum trips isn’t exactly taking your breath away!
The Internet offers an easy way to look for fun, local activities that don’t require loads of expensive gas, from comfort of your own home. Private recreation vendors and civic organizations in your area provide everything from ocean kayaking and paintball to wine tasting and salsa lessons, and in many cases, you can purchase tickets or vouchers online. Here are a few questions to consider as you select that perfect summer activity:
*Is your goal knowledge accumulation, personal development, or purely fun? Do you want this activity to be a learning experience where you have to do a little bit of work, or are you content to just kick back and enjoy it? Don’t forget to survey others in your group to see what they think!
*What size group are you planning to go with? Ask about amount of personal attention each participant will receive. An activity like surfing or golf requires substantial instruction, especially if you’ve never done it before!
*Is activity something everyone can enjoy? Consider ages and characteristics of people in your party. Will you be bringing children or someone with a medical condition or disability? Find out in advance if there are restrictions on activity and make sure that everyone in group will be willing and able to participate.
