Great Weekend Pastimes

Introduction

There are so many things to do in life, and at the same time, there’s a lot to make our time worth living. Since you’ve decided to come here, I’m sure your weekend has already started. Let me introduce you some of my favorite great weekend pastimes:

Go on an adventure.

  • Get out of town.

Go to a museum.

In the afternoon, go to a museum. If you’re feeling ambitious, plan on spending three hours at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or one hour at The Louvre. If you don’t have time for that much walking (or if it’s hot outside), take advantage of their free shuttle service between Fifty-ninth Street and The Cloisters (which houses medieval artifacts).

You’ll feel like you’ve gotten more out of your day than just seeing art—you’ll have learned something about history as well!

Set a goal for the weekend.

Another way to have a great weekend, is to get out of town. You don’t have to go far—just an hour or two will do. If you’re driving, set your destination as something that is accessible and affordable, but doesn’t require too much time off work (like a museum). Once you arrive at your destination, take some time for yourself by exploring the area around it. The more time spent outside in nature the better!

You can also use this time for relaxation: reading under a tree; taking in some fresh air; walking along trails; sitting quietly alone with your thoughts…the possibilities are endless!

Find an interesting place to work from home.

  • Find an interesting place to work from home.
  • Record your favorite podcast, show or movie and watch it at your leisure on your phone or tablet.
  • Read a book that you haven’t read before but want to check out for some reason (maybe it’s getting good reviews).

Plant a garden.

  • Plant a garden
  • Visit a local park or zoo
  • Take a walk through the woods
  • Watch birds and other wildlife in their natural habitat

Volunteer or care for an animal (or both).

  • Volunteer or care for an animal (or both).
  • Go to a garden center.
  • Go to a farmer’s market.
  • Visit an aquarium.
  • Visit an art museum and/or gallery (if you’re in the mood for more than just animals). Your local zoo or aquarium is another option; they often offer programs where volunteers can get involved with their animals and learn about them at the same time!

Cook a meal with friends and family.

  • Cook a meal with friends and family.
  • Go on a hike, or rent a kayak and paddle around the lake.
  • Play a board game like Sorry! or Monopoly.

Bake cookies or make cupcakes with kids.

Do you have a child who loves baking? Consider making some treats together and seeing how it goes. You may be surprised by how much fun they have in the kitchen, and if you’re not an expert, they’ll probably teach themselves the basics while they help out!

There are many things to do that don’t involve screens

There are many things to do that don’t involve screens. You can go hiking, biking, or even just walking around the park. You can get involved with your community and volunteer at a local food bank or animal shelter. Or maybe you’d like to learn how to play an instrument? Or maybe you’d rather join your local kickball league—just make sure there isn’t any rain in the forecast!

Your weekend will be busy but fun if you find time for these activities instead of watching television.

Conclusion

Designing for the weekend can be a pretty big challenge, since designers often want to make their site work all week too. That is why I wanted to share with you the top-rated sites that we love the most, which we often visit on weekends, when we feel like loafing around on the couch.
