Summer is a time for relaxation, friends, family, and having a blast! As Mount girls, it is in our nature to stay busy, but what happens on the days where you just don’t know what to do? Here is a list of things you can do this summer to have some fun and stay active!
- Explore, explore, explore! Little Rock has so much to offer that most girls don’t even know about. Get your friends together and go downtown to tour the Clinton Presidential Center. If you’re brave enough to face the heat, try out a new park like Two Rivers, Maumelle Park, or Conner Park. You may just find your new favorite hangout spot!
- Make some moolah! Summer is one of the best times to babysit. If you’re looking for a way to make some fast cash, reach out to family members, friends, or neighbors who have young kids. Babysitting is a great way to keep yourself busy and have fun while making money.
- Take a road trip in Arkansas! This one takes some planning, but it is more than worth it. Amazing adventures lie only hours away from the city. Head south to Arkadelphia and float the Caddo River with your family! If you’d rather terrain over water, consider hiking Petit Jean Mountain. Make sure to wear sunscreen and bring plenty of water!
- Catch a new flick! Dozens of movies are making their debut throughout the summer months. If you want a bit of a scare and thrill, look out for Annabelle: Creation which is coming out this August! If comedies are more your style, check out Despicable Me 3. Also coming out in mid-May is the romantic hit Everything, Everything. Whatever your favorite genre is, you can be sure you won’t get bored with all the options.
Ladies, have a wonderful summer and enjoy every second of it! Stay safe, make memories, and have a blast.
