Summer is finally here, which means you can (hopefully) enjoy some nice weather, kick back, and have a blast.  The best part about summer is the endless opportunities it offers.

From relaxing picnics in the park to drinks nights with friends, you have total freedom to have the time of your life. 

If you’re still yet to plan your summer activities, or are simply low on ideas, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s the ultimate to-do list for you to follow all the way until the end of summer.

1. Watch the Olympic games

Great news: the Olympics are back after an almost five-year absence! 

Everyone loves the Olympics. You get to throw your support behind your nation’s athletes and have tons of fun watching all kinds of sporting competitions that you wouldn’t normally watch. It truly is a magical time. 

Plus, you’ll be able to do some betting on the Olympic games

Millions of people around the world will be betting on the Olympics this year. It’s a great way to raise the excitement levels – and will also allow you to grow your knowledge of the different sports. 

2. Make summer cocktails

When most people think of summer, they see a wonderful image of ice-cold cocktails with lemon slices perfectly placed on the side of the glasses. 

No one can deny that a nice cocktail on a summer’s day is the perfect combination for happiness. Whether you’re chilling on the garden or at a wedding on a burning hot day, you can’t go wrong with a summer cocktail.

3. Go camping 

Camping isn’t for everyone, but even for the naysayers, it’s worth trying during the summer. You won’t regret it! 

Make sure to invest in a decent tent and camping gear (especially footwear) before you head out. 

4. Create new playlists 

Summer isn’t summer without music. 

When you think back to previous summer memories, you probably attach certain songs and albums to those memories. 

So, for this summer, make sure to create and customize some new playlists. Consider it your own personal soundtrack for the summer. Jay Z claims he’s the king of playlists, so you can try and beat him. 

5. Do some traveling 

If you can take some time off work, the summer is a great opportunity to go traveling with your friends and loved ones. 

Whether it’s to a different country or a nearby city that you’ve never been to before, the opportunities are limitless. Plus, you can use Airbnb to make your life easy – which means you don’t need to worry about paying for expensive hotels. 

Just remember to pack plenty of sun screen, especially if the weather forecast says it’s going to be mega hot! 

6. Change your haircut 

Your haircut is a great way to define your summer, especially considering it’s been a long and difficult year for most people. 

So, if you’ve had the same haircut for a long time, you should consider getting a fresh cut. This will make you feel like a new person – and the summer will instantly become more special.
