This doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune or plan an extravagant day. Any activity where you can laugh together is special. Check out these best friend activities for the ultimate summer vacation.
Road trip to a new city.
Go on a fun adventure with your best friend to a city you’ve never visited. Road tripping gives you the freedom to explore, but on an affordable budget. Take in the beautiful views, karaoke to songs on the radio at the top of your lungs and feed each other snacks as you drive. Check out the city’s shopping area; visit a new restaurant; take funny pictures or a TikTok video. Before the day’s over, park at the top of a hill and watch the sunset. Summer days are gone before you know it. Make your best friend road trip one to remember.
Visit a summer music festival.
Tick this one off your best friend bucket list and attend a summer music festival in your area. Dance and party to your favorite tunes with your ride-or-die BFF. A summer music festival has everything: sun, food, eclectic musicians, and a feel-good summer vibe with exciting energy. Rev up your summer and find a summer music festival near you!
Plan the perfect beach day.
Spend an epic beach day with your best friend this summer! We have you covered to make this the best day ever. Create a summer playlist on your phone and bring a cooler with snacks. Freeze a water bottle to use as an ice pack while suntanning. When it melts you have fresh, icy cold water to drink. Another summer beach hack: Freeze Kool-Aid into ice cubes and enjoy plain or drink with vodka in a reusable cup.
Bar and burger hop around town.
Pick your favorite rideshare app and hop around town to the best bars and burger places. What’s better than sampling the best local draft beer your state has to offer and not having to drive?
Workout with weights at the gym.
Want to get that toned summer bod? Working out with a best friend is the perfect way to stay motivated and healthy. Best friend workouts are also more fun. If you ride the struggle bus when it comes to pushing through a long workout, talking and joking with a friend makes everything feel easier. Grab brunch afterward as a reward for burning those calories.
Visit an amusement park.
When was the last time you rode a roller coaster or ate cotton candy? Summer is the perfect time to act like a silly kid and indulge your inner child! Go all out at the amusement park. Get soaking wet on the water rides. Play the carnival games to win a stuffed animal. Eat all the junk food. Splurge on a whole day of pure fun.
Attend a wine tasting.
Drinks with friends is always a good time! Find a wine tasting event at a local winery and sip the summer day away. Check out the winery’s event calendar to see if they are holding themed wine nights so you can choose your favorite. You can also host a wine party at your house! Just grab a few bottles of wine and create a simple charcuterie board. A wine tasting or wine party is a fun and classy way to spend time with your best friend this summer. Pour the rosé and enjoy a taste of summer.
