4 Activities to Enjoy the Final Days of Summer Safely
Summer in Seattle is many people’s favorite time of year. Now that the final weeks of this beautiful season are approaching, we want to help you make the most of these sunny days in the time of COVID-19. Here are some physically-distanced activity ideas for soaking in the final days of summer safely.
Get out your binoculars for bird watching
Getting outside in nature is great for relaxation as it has many soothing, meditative benefits. And bird watching is a fun activity that you can enjoy while on a daily walk or when relaxing in your own yard or garden.
Set up a delicious picnic
All you need is a blanket and your preferred picnic foods to enjoy dining outdoors. If you typically travel in the summer, consider the opportunity to make this a destination-themed picnic. Mediterranean foods like olives, bread, and cheeses are easy to enjoy outdoors and can help create the feeling that you’re vacationing even when just outside your home.
Take in your favorite local scenery on a drive
From Mount Rainier to the Puget Sound, the Seattle area is filled with beautiful scenery that you don’t have to leave your car to enjoy. To avoid crowds, hop in the car and take a scenic drive instead. Be sure to crack open a window so that you can relish the soothing breeze.
Set up an outdoor game in your yard
A physically-distant, outdoor visit from family can help lift spirits and strengthen connection. To make the most of visits, consider setting up a yard game like croquet or bags that easily allows for distancing and can be enjoyed by kids and adults of all ages.
Summer in Seattle is not over yet! Make the most of these warmer days with activities that are both fun and allow for physical distancing.
