What do you do with your weekends? The chances are most weekends get eaten up with errands, housework and trying to get everything done that you don't get a chance to do during the week.
This means that your weekends aren't as fun or relaxing as they could be, which could leave you feeling like you've barely had a few days off before going back to work.
While you may not have had many opportunities to do something interesting during the winter – after all, who wants to go out when it's wet and cold – the summer is the perfect opportunity to make the most out of your Saturdays and Sundays.
So what could you be doing with your weekends this summer?
“Looking for a good way to spend your weekends this summer? We've got some ideas”
Explore your local area
Whether you've lived in your area for years or are reasonably new, there are sure to be places you haven't visited or haven't been for ages. The summer is the ideal opportunity to just get out of the house and have an explore.
Pop on your walking shoes or hop on your bike and head out for a wander. You don't even have to have a destination in mind, as you can simply enjoy the warm weather and see what attractions take your fancy.
You never know, you might find a section of a park, a shop, a restaurant or something completely different that you end up falling in love with. You never know until you go out and have a look.
Start a new course

Have a look and see what you could be doing with your weekend.
Of course, you can always make the most of the sun and your weekends off by heading to your nearest beach. Day or weekend trips to the seaside are a great way to enjoy the good weather and get the whole family involved.
Pack up a picnic and your swimsuits and head off to soak up the rays, have a swim and enjoy some ice cream. No matter what age you or your loved ones are, everyone will have fun and enjoy the trip – even if you're only able to do it once this summer.
If you go for a day, you'll still have plenty of time to do other things with your weekend, which means starting a course won't stop you from being able to do other fun things.Back to the Magazine
