Summer is almost here! Depending on where you live, the nice weather may not last long, so it’s important to get out and make the most of it. We at GoodDeals.com recognize this, and have prepared a handy guide with some helpful suggestions designed to help you do just that. Consider these notes and tips, and then get outside to enjoy the beautiful weather!
Nothing says summer like a day spent on the water. It’s a great way to get the family together for a fun day of enjoying great weather. If you live by the ocean or know of a nearby lake, you might benefit from having a few marine-oriented games for your day out. Water trampolines, some of which come with fun accessories like a water slide, are a fantastic way to get the blood pumping. Just blow one up and watch the kids (or mom and dad too!) play for hours! If you’re lucky enough to have a power boat, water towables like a water sled or inner tube offer an exciting ride. Have a few friends who would like to get in on the action? Would you like to take the whole family for a spin? There are a number of multi-person water towables available, such as the Whale Ride Water Sled.
If a day in the backyard with friends and family sounds like fun, why not try one of these options:
- Enjoy a barbecue! It’s the classic summertime activity, and it’s an easy way to get loved ones together. Whether the party is at a friend’s house, at the park, or in your own backyard, a picnic basket is a cute way to bring food or wine to the table. Don’t have a grill? Don’t worry! Consider the convenient gas-free option of a portable electric grill.
- Have a pool party! Whether you’re swimming laps or just wading in the shallow end, there’s no better way to cool off on a hot summer day than in the pool. There are a number of products designed to help you better enjoy your day in the water. An inflatable raft will let mom work on her tan while dad dives for underwater rings. Inflatable waterslides will keep the kids entertained all day, and are a cinch to pack up. If you’d like to get the whole family involved, consider an aquatic team sport like water volleyball. No pool? Invite the neighborhood kids over to play on an inflatable bouncer. They’ll love it!
Whether your day spent in the backyard finds you in the water or on dry land, you’re going to want to be comfortable. Preparing for mosquitoes and other pests is essential to enjoying your summer. Remember the bug spray or, for a chemical-free approach, try a mosquito trap or plug-in pest repellant. Have larger pests? No problem. There are animal repellants designed for garden pests and rodents such as moles and raccoons.
There are a number of ways to get out and enjoy this season full of great weather with loved ones. So, what are you waiting for? Get out there!
