Are you missing your annual summer getaway due to the community quarantine? Have you canceled your flights already and religiously stayed at home instead? Are your feet going itchy already because you really wanted to have that amazing travel experience this summer? No worries! We’ve got you covered.
Transform your backyard into the ultimate summer destination
We’ve asked some folks what’s on their wishlist to turn their backyards into a summer oasis. Here are the tips they want to share with you to achieve that ultimate summer destination feels even you’re staying at home.
Outdoor movie marathon
If you can’t get to the movie theater, set up an outdoor movie theater, start popping the popcorn, throw some pillows and blankets, and get ready for your own personal blockbuster screening. Start the show and enjoy an amazing summer movie night with family while at home.
Take a dip
No pool? No problem! Grab your bathing suit, sunglasses, and your favorite cocktail and chill out with an inflatable pool–perfect for your backyard this summertime. Don’t forget to prepare your summer snacks, drinks, as well as body essentials to avoid to much sunburn. Dive into an amazing summer right in the comfort of your home.
Bring out the games to your backyard
Turn your backyard into your own Olympic stadium. Play golf, kickball, ring toss, or even an outdoor game competition with your family. Ready your comfortable sports attire and on your mark, get set, go for the gold. Tokyo may have canceled this year’s Summer Olympic Games due to the global pandemic, but yours will be as good spending active time with the kids.
Fire up the grill
Plan out a Sunday barbecue and cook up those burgers and meats. You can also order pizza from your favorite pizza place via Foodpanda and check for discount coupons at Shopback for your outdoor pizza party with the kids with healthy finger foods like veggie sticks and dip, and fresh fruit coolers. Get grillin’ to start the summer with amazing food at home.
Summer staycation while camping out
Treat yourself and your family a staycation this summer outside the house. Assemble and make cozy your camping tent and spend a night around the bonfire pit for hot dogs on a stick and smores for dessert. You can even do a romantic backyard camping date and pop those champagne bottles with chocolates and cheese while playing love songs on your smartphone under the stars at night.
It just isn’t summertime yet until you’ve had your first tropical fruit cocktail. Whip up some delicious ones like the refreshing piña coladas showing your family how you shake them up for them. A trip to the beach may not be in your plans today, but you can bring an amazing summer getaway at home at your backyard, your best summer destination by far.
