If you’re like most people in their early twenties, checking out the bar scene locally and crawling pubs in nearby cities can be a lot of fun—at least for a while. What do you do when it gets old? Sure, it’s fun to unwind from a hard week at work with a few beers or happy hour cocktails. Maybe you look forward to showing off your moves on the dance floor. If you’re looking to meet people, bars are full of them.
When it starts to become so routine that you don’t even have to discuss where to meet up on Friday night, it might be time to set a change of pace and do something different. But what?
Entertainment for Young Adults
If you still want to go out, there are lots of fun things to do where you can meet people and have fun. Sporting events like baseball games, football games, and tennis matches are great ways to enjoy sport and sunshine with friends. When the weather isn’t so great check out a hockey game or basketball game. Maybe you’ll have a drink while you are there, but maybe you won’t have as many as you would at the bar.
Think beyond just watching sporting events. Take the initiative to start a volleyball team or form a bowling league.
How about renting a boat for the day? You can gather all of the gear for a fishing trip, or rent a jet boat for an afternoon in the surf and sun. Pontoon boats are a fun way for a crowd to cruise the lakes or rivers, with plenty of space for everyone. If you’re looking for a bit more adventure, how about arranging a whitewater rafting trip? If you’re going a distance from home, you might add a few days of camping, hiking, biking, or swimming.
Work off some stress and calories by joining a gym together. Take the same fitness class, bootcamp, or have some fun in a spin class. After a hard workout, grab a picnic lunch and head out to the beach.
When you don’t feel like doing anything active, how about a group dinner night with a showing of movies or games afterwards? Have you thought about doing a theme party like the 60’s, 70’s, or 80’s? How about a Game of Thrones themed party?
You can always plan a group vacation for a cruise or an exotic resort. Take in the local culture, spend an afternoon shopping, and taste some of the native cuisine. Make the most of your trip. Be adventurous and try some windsurfing, parasailing, tubing, go-carting or ziplining.
The possibilities of things that you can enjoy together with your friends are endless. It really just takes some group brainstorming and a few ideas to get started. The goal of this blog is to get you started thinking out of the box.
Doing fun activities together is a great way to deepen your friendships and expand your group of friends as the group grows. Scroll through the ideas on this site, read about all the super activities that others are doing, and get started planning some new group activities.
