Whether your winter was harsh or mild, spring is always a welcome season. Birds begin to sing, blossoms begin to bloom, and all you need is an umbrella and a jacket. It’s a time of renewal and excitement. In the words of Harriet Ann Jacobs, “When Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.” This time of revival provides a perfect opportunity to shed your winter sweaters, open your windows, and head out on some spring adventures. Here are a few activities to get you started:

  1. Hike
  2. Ride a bike
  3. Fish
  4. Garden
  5. Have a picnic at the park
  6. Sit outside at a café
  7. Visit a farm
  8. Play golf
  9. Go to the zoo
  10. Feed ducks at a duck pond
  11. Visit a farmer’s market
  12. Watch a rainstorm
  13. Take a walk at a nature reserve
