While we’ve been enjoying spring-like (heck, even summer-like) weather here in Austin for a while now, we’re well aware that most of the country is just beginning to thaw out. If you’ve been cooped up with cabin fever and your last trip somewhere warm seems like forever ago, it’s time to come out of hibernation and refresh. With the trees starting to bloom, birds beginning to chip, and that all-around fresh spring smell in the air, try one of these four activities to get outside and enjoy!
Long walks are great, but try changing things up by hopping on a bike. Take the scenic route in the country or bike along the shoreline of a lake or ocean if you live near water. Another idea, why not go about your day-to-day business but sub a bike for you usual mode of transportation? If you live in a city, be sure to check if yours has bike share program which makes it so much easier.
Celebrate Earth Day on April 22d by taking a hike to marvel at the beauty of Mother Nature. Check out the blooming spring flora as well as the wildlife coming out of their winter slumber. Pack some trail mix, enough water to quench your thirst, and your phone so you can snap photos along the way. The SPI H2O Venture Series makes it so easy!
3) Roller Blading
Remember how much you loved roller blading when you were a kid? Get that joy back and try it again. Not only is it great fun, but a great workout—just be careful and make sure to wear a helmet. Get the whole family involved and teach your kids how you used to spend your free time when you were their age.
4) Enjoy A Music Festival
For all you music fans, the season of festivals has begun! Big-name Coachella runs the second and third weekends in April with other events in all genres happening throughout the spring and summer. Find one that fits your vibe and make sure to properly prepare so you can jam out and dance without worrying about your belongings. We recommend rocking a Luxe for a look that’s sure to stand out in the crowd.
