Spring has arrived and we know most people like to start off the season by taking advantage of the beautiful weather. There are plenty of great things going on this weekend all over the island that are sure to keep you busy all weekend long! Put away the boots and break out the sneakers and go for a hike. If you're not interested in hiking, head out to a festival or fair with the family!
Rather stay home this weekend? You can still do fun spring things right from home! Grab your gloves and get your spring garden ready so you're well prepared when the time comes. Another great at home idea is spring cleaning which is popular to do once the season starts. Take a look at these great ways to welcome the spring season:
Go For A Hike
Long Island has many areas that are perfect for hiking and make for the ideal opportunity to get out of the house for the day.
Head to a Festival or Fair
Enjoy some bonding time with the entire family and check out all the different vendors and their unique gift items.
Get Your Garden Ready
Prepare your garden so it is ready to go when the time is right! Clean it out from all the winter harshness and decorate it with some spring time decor and begin to plan out what you will be planting this year.
Some may not find it fun but others can find it to be quite exhilarating to be "out with old and in with the new!" Get your home ready by simplifying and organizing everything for sweet summer.
Decorate the House
Lighten up your home a bit. Start decorating for Easter or place some beautiful smelling flowers around the house to bring the spring time inside!
Break out the Outside Toys
Bring the life back into your yard by getting it child-ready again by bringing out all the bikes, balls and bubbles!
Eat Outdoors or Have a Picnic
If the weather is just right, serve the family lunch on the back porch and enjoy the sunshine. Or go to a local park and have a picnic while enjoying outdoor activities such as flying a kite, playing soccer or throwing a frisbee around.
These enjoyable ideas are perfect for the whole season and are a great way to spend time together with family and friends. Even if it is still a bit chilly outside, it doesn't mean you can't bring out some spring time warth inside!
