With the cold days of winter behind us, you’re undoubtedly ready to get out and embrace the summer heat. That is, until the mercury soars to inhumane levels that’ll have you running back indoors for some relief. Sure, the Climate Prediction Center has said this summer isn’t going to be unusually warm, but we’ll still have some scorchers.
What do you do when it’s too hot to go outside, but you don’t just wanna sit around the house? Read on to learn how to have some indoor fun!
Make Sure the Air Conditioner Works
Long before you start hosting any kind of fun event this summer, you need to make sure that your air conditioner is prepared for the task of cooling your home during the most brutal of summer days.
Call your local air conditioning repair company to come out and give your system a once over. No one wants to be surprised by a faulty AC when they have company over. It’s better to get it taken care of now than have it be an emergency later on in the season.
Go to Your Favorite Restaurant
If your air conditioner is on the fritz, or if you just need to get out of the house, then it’s always fun to head out to grab a bite to eat.
Embrace the summer season by hitting up your local BBQ joint and downing a cold beer or two. You can also beat the heat by visiting your favorite Mexican restaurant. Grab a few tacos and order up an ice-cold frozen margarita if that’s your thing.
You also won’t have to worry about heating up the house by turning on the oven or having to do the dishes. Who doesn’t love that?!
Host a Board Game Night
Want to flex your competitive side? Then it sounds like you might be ready for a board game night.
Have your friends bring over their favorite games, prep some fun snacks and drinks, and get ready for an unforgettable summer night. Just be warned, if you’re planning on playing Risk or Monopoly, plan your starting time to accommodate some extra hours of competitive gameplay!
Screen a Movie Marathon
Movie marathons are a classic way to enjoy a night off with some friends. Pick a theme for the movie and make some movie-inspired food items to nosh on. Pop the movies in and you’re ready to go!
Since you’ll be at home, you won’t have to worry about talking during the movie. Honestly, sometimes the commentary is better than the movie itself!
Are You Ready for Some Indoor Fun?!
The weather may be blazing hot, but there’s plenty of indoor fun to be had this summer. Stay cool by hanging out inside where the temperature is cool and you can comfortably visit with your friends and family. The more creative you are about your activities, the more fun you’re bound to have!
