With 10 months of dedicated study coming up in September, students should take part in this activity that provides enough adrenaline to carry them through the school year: water sports. From water skiing to tubing, water sports are a fun way to enjoy the water and summer weather. Prepare to rent a boat and/or jet ski before heading back to the busy classroom.
Aside from being refreshing and delicious, berries are a great source of fiber and nutrients. And on a hot summer’s day, there’s nothing better than a packet of fresh berries. Whether you’re looking for strawberries, blueberries or blackberries, there are many farms in the East End open to pick berries. Summer is the height of berry season. Go get some!
night at the beach
Everyone goes to the beach during the day, whether to swim in the ocean or to play spike ball with friends. However, the beach is less crowded at night. This void, combined with the sound of waves crashing on the shore, make for the perfect campfire – with s’mores of course. Don’t tell too many other people about this activity; Otherwise, everyone will rush to the beach to light bonfires at night! But in particular, don’t even think about starting a campfire before reading the beach rules you want to spend time on – some require permits, others prohibit fires entirely, so please be responsible.
For those who love golf but don’t have the patience to stand on the green for hours, mini golf is the perfect summer activity. For just $15, rent a paddle and some golf balls at Hamptons Mini Golf, an 18-hole mini golf course with historic landmarks in the Hamptons. Mini golf is a great activity for the last month of summer, and with a vanilla milkshake in hand, forget about it!
