1. Escape Rooms
When you visit an Escape Room, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth. If you’ve ever wished that you could be in an action movie, this is coming pretty close to it.
You’ll be able to enjoy different scenarios and have to use your smarts to get out in time. There’s no shame in the game if you don’t win, but if you do — you can brag about it.
2. Movie Night
You’ve got a lot of options when it comes to renting the latest and greatest movies. You don’t have to pay the big bucks to go to the theater since many of the services like Netflix, Redbox, Amazon Prime and more will allow you to rent these movies for a fun night with friends.
You can set up a projector in your backyard and have a fun movie night that everyone will look forward to.
3. Game Night
Whether you’re playing Xbox, Wii or board games, there are games for everyone’s taste. You might even decide you want to play some hoops out in the driveway if you have the setup.
A little competition never hurt anyone but it definitely can get the blood pumping and the playful jabs going.
At any given time, there are likely festivals happening in your area from food festivals or music festivals. Pull up Facebook or your city’s event calendar and see if you can find a festival that you and your friends can agree upon.
There are likely many places in your own backyard that you’ve never explored. Not only are hikes a great way to get out into nature but they’re an amazing way to bond with friends and have fun while getting some exercise into your routine.
Make sure you pick trail difficulties that everyone will be able to do. You don’t want to have to leave anyone behind because they can’t hack the hike. If your group is full of newbie hikers, you might want to choose the easy trails that have a big payoff.
