YOU CAN STILL HAVE A HOT GIRL SUMMER THIS YEAR!! We may not be able to travel to all the beautiful destinations we planned on and we may have to see each other in a safe social environment, but all of this can still be fun!
Now that New York has entered Phase III, more and more people are getting out and enjoying the beautiful weather and all that New York still has to offer. Here are a few things you can still enjoy while the city continues to open, that are fun and safe:
EAT AT A RESTAURANT
Though restaurants aren’t allowing dining indoors, you can still dine outside with loved ones or have a romantic dinner with your partner. Hey, with such beautiful weather, who wants to dine indoors anyway??!! So, go on, get dressed up and find one of the many restaurants that are now open for business.
PICNIC AT THE PARK OR THE BEACH
Now this is one of my go-to activities right now! What is safer than packing your own basket with the foods and drinks you love and heading to the park or beach. Just grab a blanket and get a nice huge umbrella, if you decide to go to the beach, and find a spot that is a safe distance away from others. Recently, lots of people have been getting together for social distance picnics where the groups are staying a safe distance away and everyone is able to communicate with each other, while being in the same location. One other thing that I love doing at the park is taking the ride on the pedal boat in Prospect Park in Brooklyn or boating in Central Park. So put on your favorite summer dress and enjoy. Thank me later!!
ENJOY STREET FOOD
There may not be any huge street fairs this summer or my all-time favorite place to eat in the summer—Smorgasburg, but many food carts and food stalls are open for business, so take a stroll near a park or many of the hip areas where you can find street food, such as hotdogs/burgers and drinks. Also, let’s not forget my fave guilty pleasure — ice-cream. You can almost be certain to find an ice-cream truck at almost every corner. I love my Mr. Smoothie smothered in chocolate or dipped in crushed peanuts. YUMZEERRZZZZ!!!
TAKE TO THE SEA
That’s right!!! Try an outdoor sport like jet skiing with some of the great locations within the city. This is an activity that groups can do, while out on the jet ski, you will be a safe distance away from your friends and others. See other links below:
The USA has lots of beautiful places you can visit. You can hop in your car, or if you don’t have a car get a rental and hit the road. With so many AirBnbs and hotels that are open for business, you can still have the vaca feeling even it is not on an island in the Caribbean.
In addition to the various outdoor activities that you can safely enjoy, many of us are also spending more time on Zoom lunch, brunch, dinner, happy hours and even concerts and parties. Speaking of Zoom, I am currently hosting some fun but very beneficial one-hour workout sessions every Saturday and Sunday morning from 10:00 AM EST, and I have received very positive feedback from the ladies who have joined me. It is one my biggest highlights since COVID. ☺️
