Summertime in Florida
There is more to Florida than the beaches and sun.
May 16, 2022
During summer, the kids at VMS have approximately 12 weeks (about 3 months) of freedom from school. But some people might not know where to start their fun. Most people in Florida love to spend their summer at the beach, after all that’s where the sun shines the most. There are so many other options than just the beach though.
To begin with, if you’re with a group of friends there are various places you can go and explore around the town. I’ve seen many places around my town during summer that I’ve wanted to explore. One example is thrifting. Thrifting is super fun with a group of friends or even by yourself. Thrift stores sometimes carry the coolest clothes, environmental benefits, and the best part is they’re typically cheap. (The Gothic Times) Another fun thing you can do around town is go to the fair. A couple of different fairs come to town in the summertime. Fairs are a wonderful place to go with friends and don’t cost a huge amount of money, that is if you don’t fall for the unwinnable fair games. These are just two ideas of things to do in summer around the town.
Furthermore, there are also things at home that you can do that’re just as fun and cheap. For instance, you and some friends could fill up some water balloons and have a water balloon fight. It might be messy to clean up but it’s super fun to do. Additionally, something else you can do at home is arts and crafts, like making bracelets, necklaces, or decorating some sunglasses. You can also paint random things with your friends and compare them to each other. I interviewed Sophia Crawford at VMS about these ideas, her response was, “I had no idea what to do for summer, so these are some great ideas as to what to do, especially since I love arts and crafts.” There are so many other things you can do with friends in the summertime that are just at home.
To conclude, there are various things to do in Florida during the summer besides just going to the beach. Whether it’s something around the town or just something simple at your house. There are so many other things you can do in the summer that aren’t listed in the article, like going to the movies with friends. Summer is one of the best times in the year to go out and make memories with friends. It’s always a fun time if you know fun things to do.
