Everyone talks about the many activities there are to do in the winter, summer, and even fall as there are a lot of things one can do during these beautiful seasons. People hardly ever talk about spring, however, or at least not to the extent that they do the winter or summer seasons; believe it or not, there are an array of things that one can do in the spring as well. Spring is similar to fall in that people love the “balanced” weather; now depending on where you live in the United States most specifically spring and fall may be warmer or colder than usual in some years than others, but for the most part, they feel very mid-range. Children are also on spring break for some time during the spring so if you have a family doing fun activities with them around this time is a plus.
The first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of “spring” is flowers as in this season mother nature is essentially preparing for summer and exiting winter. One might even associate spring with new beginnings because spring also symbolizes birth and life. So it is not surprising that one of the most common things to do is have a picnic or visit a garden or park where you can have this picnic or simply enjoy nature. Three of the most beautiful gardens that one can visit in the United States are The New York Botanical Garden, located in The Bronx, New New York City, Lotusland Montecito, California, and Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, DC. The top three parks to visit are The Grand Canyon in Arizona, California’s Yosemite National Park, and Wyoming’s Grand Teton Park. One can of course be more low-key and visit a park near their homes and go hiking in the national parks mentioned above.
In addition to picnicking, hiking, and spending time in a park or garden. One can also plant their own garden in their front or back yard; three easy and incredibly beautiful flowers to plant are Sunflowers, Coneflowers, and Zinnias. Painting is also a fun hobby one can pick up; you can paint at home or visit your local paint bar. Horseback riding and Bicycling are also some fun activities/hobbies that one can venture into in this gorgeous season.
In New York City, one can rent or buy a bike of their own and ride them on the Manhattan or Brooklyn Bridge. One can also ride their bike around their neighborhood or in a park. As for Horseback riding, one can visit a barn and or equestrian center. Since children are on spring break it can be a good idea to travel and go to places; you can obviously go where ever you want, but if you are looking for beautiful views and weather: Italy, Greece, and Mexico are great places! If you are into sports, baseball is the sport to play in the spring as well as in the summer; you can play this in your backyard, at a park, or in a sports center/club.
Spring is unarguably a beautiful season that deserves more credit. So don’t be afraid to grab a loved one and venture on these amazing activities before the summer.
