Between beach vacations and eating out, summer can get expensive! So we asked some of our team about their favorite free summer activities.
Find two trees and string up a hammock. Whether it’s an ENO or a good old-fashioned rope hammock, you can’t beat swinging in the shade on a hot summer’s day.
Drinking Mojitos Under The Sun
Pick some mint from your garden and grab your favorite glass; it’s time for porch-sitting and booze-drinking.
Travis and Drew’s Pick
A day spent at the pool is a day well-spent. Also, the only proper way to enter a pool is by cannon ball.
What happens went volleyball and trampolines meet? You get spikeball.
Boating and Grilling
This one requires a little cost up front, but if you’ve got a boat, nothing completes a day on the lake like a cookout with friends.
Cody the Intern’s Pick
Get away from the city and hike through the woods. There are plenty of trails within an hour of Nashville.
Erica the Intern’s Pick
If hiking is too tame for you, lace up your shoes and start running. Just don’t trip on any logs.
Catching Lightning Bugs
“I love how catching lightning bugs with the kids leads to a fork in the road. We either find a shoe box, build a habitat, and spend hours studying the bugs. Or, we let all the bugs go and diverge into a game of night time freeze tag or kick the can.” – Henry
If you’ve never had a picnic with your friends at the Love Circle, what are you even doing with your life?
Every Saturday night in Centennial Park, join a crowd of dancing fools for Big Band Dance.
Motor on over to a car show this summer. Marvel at these feats of ingenuity and artistry. You’re sure to have a wheely good time. There’s a fun, free show in August in Chattanooga if you feel like gettin’ outta town.
