MN Summer Activities List
A Top Real Estate Agents Idea for Summer Fun in MN
Summer has returned to the Northern Hemisphere. Here in Minneapolis, the tundra, we feel our glorious summer is the reward we deserve for getting past a long, frosty, biting, snowy, punishing winter. Ok, you get it – it’s cold here for a substantial portion of the year.
I’ll make the concession that all seasons of the year have their particular charms and recommendations. But, making the most of summer, filling every day with pleasures of the season, comes with the territory here in Minnesota. My summer list consists mainly of simple pleasures, with a touch of the exotic to shake it up a bit.
MN is the Land of 10,000 Lakes
Now coming from a resident of the land of 10,000 lakes (actually, it’s more like 11,842), it’s no surprise that water plays a dominant role in summer. Swimming, boating, fishing, sailing are all popular activities enjoyed on Minnesota lakes in the summer months.
Go on a picnic. Attend a concert in the park. Play mini-golf. Play tennis. Run a marathon. Walk the dog. Play catch with kids. Ride a swing. Go rollerblading. Go surfing. Drink lemonade or ice tea.
Be happy as a Realtor.
Host a clam boil, a shrimp boil, or even a lobster boil if you feel flush with cash. However, in the spirit of disclosure, having consumed my fair share of clam boils living on the east coast for many years, I can honestly say I never met a clam that was happy to be part of the festivities.
Visit a national park on free park day.
Toast marshmallows around your firepit.
Take a hot air balloon ride.
Attend a baseball game.
Plant a vegetable garden.
Rock a Birkenstock.
