End of Summer Activities

Summertime is drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have some fun before it is over! In today’s Cypress River Blog post, we are highlighting a few end of summer activities that will help you finish the summer with a bang as you prepare for the upcoming season of fall. 

Create Sidewalk Chalk Art

Remember when you were a kid and sidewalk chalk was all the rage? Well sidewalk chalk isn’t just for kids anymore! Participating in sidewalk art contests and creating 3D sidewalk art is super fun for those who love art or have a talent for creating beautiful works of art. Try creating a sidewalk chalk masterpiece before the summer ends. Be sure to take pictures of your art so you can share it with your friends and family on social media. 

Enjoy a Rootbeer Float

This tasty treat is one of our favorite summertime treats. Simple to make but incredibly delicious, all you need is ice cream and rootbeer! You can also add some whipped cream and a cherry for an Instagram worthy photo. Feel free to mix things up by using a different flavor of ice cream or a type of soda other than root beer.

Go to the Beach

Living in Ladson, SC, we are lucky enough to be near several beaches. Before summer ends, make time to enjoy a relaxing and fun day at the beach. We love the feeling of walking barefoot on the sand! Whether you are looking to work on your tan, build a sandcastle, or get out in the water, the beach is a great place to be. Get some friends together and make some lasting memories with a game of beach volleyball or frisbee!

Make S’mores

S’mores are the perfect summertime treat. Whether you make them around a campfire or in the microwave, their ooey gooey goodness is perfect for ending summer on a sweet note. Try making different variations using different types of chocolate or candy bars or cookies instead of graham crackers. Our apartment community has an outdoor fire pit which is the perfect place to get together with friends to make s’mores!
