10 Things to Do on a Sunny Day

After a long and seemingly never-ending winter, the sun has finally decided to shine, as you awake to a gloriously warm, sunny day. You can't wait to get outside and enjoy the sunshine, when all of a sudden, you realise you cannot think of anything to do. For all those people who are stuck finding something to do outdoors, here are ten activities you can try:

  1. Go for a bike ride. Cycling is a great way to enjoy beautiful weather. Plus, it's also good exercise. Head to a country park or other scenic spot and spend the day soaking up the sights.
  2. Lay in the sun. Head to your nearest park or pleasant green space, sit down, and relax. Enjoy the warm sunshine and just forget about the world. If you need to be doing something, listen to some music or have a read.
  3. Play some games. Gather some friends or family for a nice afternoon of frisbee. Not your thing? Bring a football, volleyball, or badminton set, and have some fun.
  4. Have a picnic. Good food and sunshine go together splendidly. Pack your favourite snacks and drinks and find a calm, scenic spot. Set down the blanket, tuck in, and let the day roll by.
  5. Host a barbecue. Having a barbecue is always a good idea. Enjoy the pleasure of good company, good food, and good drink, coupled with some fresh air and sunshine.
  6. Go for a walk. Take advantage of a sunny day by exploring the beauty of nature. Find a hiking trail, or local park, and soak up the sunshine and greenery. If your surrounding area doesn't offer much nature, drive for an hour or more until you find somewhere appealing.
  7. Read a book. If you enjoy reading, grab a book or magazine, sit down and wile away the afternoon soaking up the outdoors.
  8. Go sightseeing. Spend the day visiting a castle, historical town, amusement park or zoo. Explore sights, have an ice cream, and most of all, enjoy the fine weather.
  9. Go for a dip in the water. There's nothing quite as refreshing as taking a nice cool dip on a hot sunny day. Whether it is a paddling pool, a swimming pool, a stream, or the ocean, having a paddle is always fun on a hot day.
  10. Play some sports. Get some mates together and arrange a friendly football or basketball game. You could also go for a leisurely game of golf, or a game of tennis. If you are playing sports outside in the sun, don't forget to drink plenty of fluids.
