It’s summertime! Cue up the BBQs, fireworks, and outdoor adventures! Want to spend your 4th of July differently this year?
Try some of these fun adventurous ideas to celebrate the 4th of July this year from 3 Rad Kids!
Go Camping (Even if it is in Your Backyard!)
There is something about camping that always feels like an adventure, even if you are just pitching your tent in your backyard!
This year, use the 4th of July holiday to get outside, make some s’mores, tell ghost stories, and wake up early to see the sunrise. While you are at it, do not forget to roast some hot dogs, it is an American tradition after all!
P.s. If campfires are not allowed at your campsite, roast your hot dogs over your stove’s flame instead.
This could also be a great opportunity to travel to some of America’s National Parks. Let freedom ring!
Try a New Sport
July 4th is a great time to try out a new sport with your family. Why not give kayaking, paddle boarding, surfing, or skateboarding a try? It will be a fun challenge, and later you can reward yourself with a nice big scoop of ice cream. Yes!
If you decide to give surfing a try, check out a surf town near you! They generally have the best 4th of July celebrations including amazing fireworks over the water, colorful parades, concerts, and awesome surfing competitions!
While many people stay at home to grill and BBQ, the 4th of July can be a great time to plan that hike that you have always wanted to try. (It can also be a great way to beat the heat!) What better way to appreciate America than with a day spent outside in our beautiful country?
Do not forget to bring the stars and stripes with you on your hike to show off your patriotic pride!
Celebrate on the Beach
If you are lucky enough to live within driving distance to the beach, pack up for the day for a fun day in the sun. Soak up some sun while surfing, boogie-boarding, paddle boarding, or just doing some good old-fashioned sunbathing.
Plus, if you stay until evening, expect to see a beautiful display of fireworks.
Go for a Bike Ride
Whether you are riding around your city or going to a remote trail, get active on America’s birthday! Appreciate all that your city or nature has to offer! Map out a new trail that you have not ridden before and plan some fun stops along the way to keep things interesting.
What is more patriotic than biking through this great country that we get to call home?!
Appreciate Public Lands this July 4th
Wherever you end up on the 4th of July—a national park, wilderness area, state preserve, or beach—take a moment to appreciate all the beauty that our country has to offer.
Thank you to all the men and women who work tirelessly to keep our public lands protected! Happy Birthday, America!
