The month of June is considered to be the Great Outdoors Month. I think it’s pretty obvious by what this means, so why are you still sitting inside your house/apartment behind that computer screen? It’s time to turn off all of those electronic devices for a few hours or even a few days and let’s do something productive outdoors while having fun.

Activities to do Outdoors

Camping-

Camping is a good way to get involved with the great outdoors by going back to the basic of living and becoming one with nature. It is also a great activity to do with your loved ones, friends or you can even go alone if you wanted to. Camping can be done anywhere, your backyard, a local camping ground, a state park, or even one of that big national parks. In the state of Louisiana, we have a lot of different state parks that allows people to camp at throughout the year. They even offer cabins and lodges for bigger groups of people. So this is an option if someone in your camping party doesn’t like to sleep in tents. 

Fishing-

You can never go wrong when it comes to fishing. Fishing is a great way to spend your time to relax and enjoy the solitude or you can take a couple of your friends or family and make it a gathering. Make sure you have the right equipment to fish with and please abide by the fishing laws in the area you plan on fishing. Some places require a fishing license in order to fish. 

Swimming-

It’s June, so all of the area lakes and swimming pools are now officially open for the summer. So why not beat the summer heat by going swimming. Swimming is also a good way to exercise and will help lose weight. If you don’t know how to swim then now is the best time to learn. You are never too old to learn. One day those swimming lessons may come in handy, especially the way it has been flooding in some areas around the world.

With the way food costs keep going up, many people have resorted to growing their own vegetables and fruits. Not only does this save on the food bill but you will know exactly what kind of chemicals are used in your own garden. This is not a simple task to complete but the rewards and benefits are tremendous. You will see a huge difference in the long run. 

I only touched basis on a few activities that can be done during the Great Outdoors month. I’m sure you will be able to think of several more that may suit you and your family enjoy doing. The objective of this is to get outside and enjoy life while you still can. <3
