It’s Friday and you’ve found yourself with no plans for the coming weekend. Whether you’re trying to entertain visiting guests or just looking for a new activity to mix things up a bit, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading for five fun things you can do this weekend.
1. Go to a dance club or a rave.
There’s nothing quite like going to a dance club or rave to get your groove on. The music is pumping, the lights are flashing, and the energy is contagious. It’s the perfect place to let loose and have some fun. Whether you’re dancing by yourself or with a group of friends, there’s a lot of energy to be had.
One of the best parts of going to a rave is putting your outfit together. Rave outfits are typically characterized by bright colors, bold patterns, and lots of sparkles. Some popular trends in rave clothing include tutus, body paint, sequins, and furry boots. Many ravers also like to wear glow-in-the-dark jewelry and accessories. Going to a rave is a great way to embrace your creative side.
2. Take an impromptu road trip.
If you’re looking for a fun weekend activity that doesn’t require traveling too far, consider taking a day trip somewhere close by. There are many great places to explore right in your own backyard, and with a little planning, you can often find some wonderful deals on hotels and other travel expenses.
Some fun day trip ideas include going to an amusement park, visiting the beach, or checking out a local tourist spot. Amusement parks and beaches are great options, and there’s probably at least one park or beach (or lake) within driving distance.
3. Play a new game with friends.
There’s something special about gathering together with friends to play games. Whether it’s a classic like Monopoly or something new and exciting like trying to solve a crime game, spending time laughing and competing is a great way to enjoy each other’s company.
A murder mystery game can be a fun weekend activity that allows participants to act out the role of detectives to solve a fictitious crime. The game can be played with friends or family and can be tailored to fit any age group.
There are several different types of murder mystery games, but play generally requires choosing a location for the crime scene and creating a list of clues that will help solve the mystery. Each player is then given a character to play and must use their detective skills to piece together the clues to identify the culprit.
4. Indulge in some retail therapy.
Retail therapy can be a fun form of self-care, and it’s a great way to treat yourself. You can go shopping at your favorite mall or shopping district, and make a whole day of it. If there’s a cool outlet mall or shopping attraction within driving distance, you can take a day trip and get out of town for a few hours.
You don’t necessarily need to buy something if your budget is tight. If you’re able, splurging on something you’ve been wanting but haven’t been able to afford is a great way to treat yourself—but window shopping can be just as therapeutic.
5. Explore the great outdoors.
If you love outdoor activities or you’re experiencing some particularly great weather, consider taking a hike in the mountains or going for a walk in the woods. Getting outdoors is always refreshing, and there are probably lots of parks or nature preserves close by that will give you plenty of scenic views to enjoy.
Pack a cooler with snacks and drinks and find a nice area to enjoy a picnic. Go by yourself for some quality alone time, or invite a friend or loved one to make some memories.
