5 Activities You Need to Do Before Summer Ends


Ahh, the fleeting days of summer. It seems the season just arrives and gets settled and then it’s gone again. Luckily, you’re not out of time yet – there’s still time for you to make the most out of your summer. Here are some ideas for squeezing every drop out of your remaining days in the sun.

1. Tour your own town

In the day-to-day-ness of life, you fly around your hometown with errands and other things on your mind. How often do you take in what’s around you? Try taking a day to look at your city through the eyes of a tourist – someone who doesn’t know what’s around every bend. Stop in at your local visitor’s bureau and do some research about what makes your area unique. Do an activity you’ve never done before, eat at a restaurant you’ve never tried, or stop in at all the little shops you’ve been meaning to check out.

2. Go to an outdoor sporting event

There’s nothing like watching your favorite team take the pitch in person or cheering on your favorite first-baseman from seats behind home plate. Whether it’s a date night or fun for the whole family, take the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors while you still can.

3. Travel as much as you can

There’s no doubt that road trips in the summer are far superior to any other season. Get in the car and go to as many places as you can before your routine again becomes regimented by school and sports schedules. Hitting the beach or enjoying the cooler temps in the mountains, you won’t regret seeing as many sights as you can.

4. Take in an outdoor concert

Music under the stars and a light summer breeze? Yes, please! Check out what’s happening in your area or find out where your favorite band is playing and make a trip of it.

5. Hit the beach

Is it really even summer if you haven’t had your toes in the sand at least once? Whether it’s a local beach that you can visit often or you travel to the coast for a week at the ocean, water and sand will you do good. There’s still time to load up the family and all the accessories and get on the road.

Make sure your vehicle’s up to the challenge

Before you can enjoy those last days of summer, it’s a good idea to make sure your car is ready to roll and working at optimum levels. The one thing you don’t want to experience this summer is a vehicle break-down. At Conrad’s, we’ve got all of your car-care needs covered, from routine maintenance to repairs.
