The weather is warming up and it feels awesome! As the snow melts away to give way to spring and the flowers start to bloom, it’s time to find some fun springtime activities to do.
10 Fun Things for Adults to Do in Spring – Outdoor Activities and Pastimes
Springtime is approaching, and that only means that the weather is starting to warm up. Many adults that are between their 20’s and 50’s are parents of young children, and they are constantly having to look for springtime activities for their kids to enjoy. And, these adults are rarely looking for fun activities for themselves to do in the spring. For adults that are not parents, this is not an issue. However, it is important for parents to do adult-age appropriate spring activities for themselves so they don’t burn out while managing their families.
Not to mention, parents who don’t take enough breaks from their responsibilities end up losing themselves. This is why it is important that they hire a babysitter or if they are lucky enough to have family around to watch their kids, ask them for their help. Just like kids need to be kept busy with activities, the same applies to adults.
1. Enjoy an Aromatic Cup of Coffee at A Sidewalk Cafe – Alone or With Friends
The weather is warming up, and spring is a perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors because it is warm and mild unlike the summer when you have to be mindful of the heat.
A great way for anyone to unwind whether they want to join a friend or to have a date with themselves is to go to a cafe. They can order a cappuccino, a dessert, or a salad, or whatever their heart desires. While they sit on the patio while they are sipping their beverage or eating their meal or dessert, they can enjoy the springtime breeze at the same. That is a fun and a refreshing experience for any adult to enjoy some me time, whether they have a family or care for or not. It’s a great way for anyone to unwind after a long workday as well!
2. Go To A Food Festival Or To A Farmer’s Market
Many food festivals and farmer’s markets have been closed all winter, and once the spring is on the horizon, then that is when they start getting ready to open back up!
And, that is one activity that all adults should be doing every spring. There is a huge variety of interesting foods that are based on different cultures that you would not want to miss out on. And, these food festivals can be a lot of fun! The same goes for your trip to the farmer’s market because they often offer a large variety of delicious foods to try out!
3. Go To An Art Festival
The springtime is the time when many art festivals and art fairs are opening up.
A trip to one of those festivals can become a great spring activity. Because walking around looking at a variety of colorful art can help you shake yourself out of those lingering winter blues. Find out if there’s an art fair near you.
4. Go See a Film at a Drive-In Movie Theater
This trend was established in New York City, as many other cities now have their own Shakespeare in the Park versions. However, many cities host their own plays and drive-in movies in different parks. Watching either while sitting on the lawn enjoying the perfect and mildly warm weather is a fun activity for the average adult. You will need to check your local listing to see what parks in your area are offering plays and movie nights! This is a great date activity as well.
5. Go Enjoy A Picnic – Double Date?
When the weather is warming up, you do not want to miss out on having an enjoyable picnic at a park with your friends on the weekend for lunch.
There are many parks that are in every city that allow people to enjoy having a picnic. All you have to do is bring a blanket or large beach towel along with your coolers, and find a shaded area at the park. And once you do, then you can have your picnic with your friends. Picnics are a fun activity to do during the springtime. You can definitely enjoy picnics during the summer months as well, but the spring weather is a lot more comfortable because the temperatures are not too warm as of yet.
This is one of those activities that are equally enjoyable whether you’re doing it alone or with a group of people. This can be a fun thing to do on double date too if you’re going out with another couple.
6. Go Take A Walk At A Park
Best free activity for just about any season but especially awesome spring thanks to the blossoming flowers.
You don’t necessarily have to go for a picnic to visit a park. You can always just enjoy taking a walk in a beautiful park or a conservation area. The weather is comfortable so you can enjoy spending time walking without having to break a sweat. However, even though the spring temperatures are not too warm, it is always advisable to bring your sunscreen and a hat. The sun is still emitting harmful UV rays, and that applies to every season of the year.
7. Go To A Music Festival
Just like a summer music festival, but minus the sweat and body odor.
You have food festivals, art festivals, and you also have music festivals. You may think that most music festivals and concerts don’t start coming into the picture until the summertime. However, there are plenty of places in every city that host concerts and music festivals during the springtime as well. If this interests you, then you will need to check around your area to see if there are any on the horizon.
If you live in California or in one of the neighboring states, check out this list of music festivals.
8. Go To A Rooftop Bar, Or To A New Restaurant
Take a sip of your favorite cocktail as the spring breeze rejuvenates your body and soul.
The one thing that you will want to do now that the weather is warming is to enjoy an adult beverage under the clouds! You will want to check out all of the rooftop bars that are in your area. This way, you can not only enjoy the experience of having a drink and a dinner on the rooftop but you enjoy the view of the city below you. Or, if this is not something you want to do, you will want to try out a new restaurant in a different area of the city in the springtime. You can technically do that at any time of the year, but now that the weather is warming up, you do not need to worry about blizzards getting into the way of you going to places that are out of the way!
9. Celebrate The Holidays
The holiday season may be over, but there’s still some holidays!
There are some holidays that are happening during the springtime which go beyond Easter, Mother’s Day, and Earth Day. St. Paddy’s Day takes place on March 17th of each year, but that is technically a winter holiday. You can celebrate some smaller holidays such as having a grilled cheese on National Grilled Cheese Day on April 12th, or you can go to a Mexican restaurant during Cinco de Mayo, and enjoy those festivities as well.
10. Go To An Opening Baseball Game
Be a pioneer – watch the first baseball game of the season in-person.
If your city has a baseball team, then the one spring activity that you will want to do is to go to a game to cheer your favorite team on. If your budget, however, does not allow you to go to the opening game since it is quite expensive, you can also go to a spring training game one spring evening. That will be a little less costly.
