Summer Comes to an End
August 11, 2022
While summer is nearing its end, we don’t want you to regret not doing enough this sunny season. We asked our brokers what they’ve been up to so far this summer, and we think some activities just shouldn’t be missed. What can you check off, and what do you need to get out and take a break to do before the warm weather is gone?
Swing from a rope swing
Visit your local water hole and take the plunge! Remember how much you loved this as a child? Maybe you have your own kids now that haven’t had the pleasure? Either way, this is a summer staple and a must-do while you still can this year.
Float the river
Who doesn’t love a relaxing float down a smooth river?! Kids and adults alike love this summer activity so grab some friends and your family and head to one of these local spots (each one is only a few hours float time) – just remember to drop off a vehicle at your exit point or try a guided float that will bus you back and forth.
It’s no secret that the PNW offers the best berry selection in the nation. This makes for a fun afternoon with the kiddos or an early day-date. Try out the Snohomish valley where there are half a dozen fields within just a couple miles of each other or wander on your own through the hidden fields at Mt Catherine. View this site before you set out though, as the trailhead can be tricky to find: https://bit.ly/3drfE77
Attend an outdoor concert
Live music keeps the soul alive and it’s way better experienced outside! Check these venues to see who’s coming to your area –
Ride in a hot air balloon
This one may not make the list every summer but if you haven’t done so yet, it’s a blast that you don’t want to miss! See NW Washington from a whole new vantage point and then check them out as they soar at the Olympic Peninsula Air Affaire.
Now this may be an obvious one, but what better time than the not-to-hot and not-too-cold nights of summer to build s’mores over a bonfire. Whether it’s while you camp or just in your yard, bust out the graham crackers and try these different twists on the classic in place of plain ol’ chocolate pieces:
Wherever these next few weeks take you, we hope that you get out and enjoy the sun, the warmth, and the beautiful place we call home.
