It’s springtime! The weather is just about perfect, especially in April when the minimum and maximum average temperatures are +8 °C (46.4 °F) and +19 °C (66.2 °F) respectively. Plus, leaves are growing back on trees and flowers are blooming, bringing color and life to the surroundings once again. And these make spring the best time to be outdoors!
So if you haven’t done anything outdoors yet, start planning something now! You don’t want to let the spring season pass without enjoying the outdoors. Take a look at some great activities that you can enjoy this spring.
Take a road trip
Road trips are always fun, but done in springtime, they can be one great experience. Just imagine feeling the cool breeze on your face and hair and seeing breathtaking views of the countryside for hundreds of miles in the company of your family or friends. Talk about relaxing while experiencing the outdoors! So this spring, get your new car or used Mercedes Sprinter ready to hit the road. You can plan a five-hour drive to a white-sand beach, a music festival, or even the Las Vegas Strip and enjoy how you get there as much as the destination.
Go camping or fishing
Spring is also a great time to be one with nature. With your family or friends, go on a camping or fishing trip, and if you can do both in one outing, then all the better. Have fun setting up the tents, starting a fire, catching fish, and cooking meals over the campfire. Then, enjoy the company of your loved ones by watching the sunset, sharing stories, or merely listening to the flowing river, rustling leaves, chirping birds, and other sounds of nature. Some of the best camping sites in the U.S. are the Acadia National Park in Maine and Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, while the top fishing spots include the Florida Keys in Florida and Devil’s Lake in North Dakota.
Visit local attractions
Of course, you don’t always have to go far from your home to enjoy the outdoors during the spring season. If there’s a park nearby, invite your family or friends for a picnic and a game of flag football or Ultimate Frisbee now and then. To have some alone time, you can ride your bike or go for a walk or run around your neighborhood. And for those of you lucky enough to have a theme park, zoo, or a botanical garden in your town or city, take advantage of these local attractions and the outdoor activities they offer as often as you can.
Spend Time Outdoors This Spring
With its great weather and colorful surroundings, spring is the best time to be outdoors. You can travel far by going on a road, camping, or fishing trip or stay close to home and take advantage of the local attractions to enjoy the outdoors. And the good thing is that you still have until the end of May—and maybe even a week or two in June— to make the most of this spring season.
