Summer Activities That Will Make You Feel Like a Kid Again

As Walt Disney famously once said, “Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional.” We completely agree! There’s no age limit on feeling carefree and seeking constant joy and adventure, but as we grow up we lose sight of these simple little things. If you’re ready for some nostalgia, check out some of our favorite activities that will make you feel like a kid again!


Go to a Carnival

First of all, nothing screams summer like heading to the county fair. Between the deliciously greasy funnel cakes and fried Oreo’s, the live music, and the endless rides, carnivals are like a giant playground… but better!




Try Zorbing

We’re not making this up – you can actually roll down hills inside of a gigantic orb! What a rush! Find out where you can go zorbing here.


Experience a Trampoline Park

Trampoline parks are basically giant gymnasiums filled with trampolines from wall to wall. Seriously, how could you NOT have fun?!


Ride Bikes

It’s possible that you still ride a bike, but maybe you’re focused on your fitness while doing so. Remember the good ol’ days when you would ride around just for fun? Make that the goal again!




Go to a Water Park

Water slides, wave pools, lazy rivers… need we say more? You’re never too old to splash around in a water park!


Catch Fireflies

This one’s a bit more low-key, but we all need that sometimes, right? Enjoying simple activities like catching fireflies reminds us to enjoy all of the little things in life – just like we did as kids!


Dance in the Rain

For one day, put aside everything stopping you from enjoying this carefree activity. Don’t worry about ruining your hair and don’t worry about soaking your clothes – just go out and have fun!




Head to an Arcade

Arcades are so underrated. Racing against your buddies in a Daytona video game brings out some friendly competition, and beating your high score in ski ball is always a reason to celebrate! There’s also no shame in cashing in those hard-earned tickets for that mega-sized stuffed animal you’ve been eyeing.


Sing Karaoke

The great thing about kids is that they’ll act a fool in public and don’t care what anyone thinks! It’s probably been awhile, but you can totally experience that lively feeling again during a night of karaoke with some friends. Put all the embarrassment aside and just enjoy the fun while you belt out those tunes!


Fly a Kite

When was the last time you flew a kite? It’s about time you enjoy the simple thrill of sending a kite soaring through the wind again. See how long you can keep it in the air!




Race Go-Karts

Some friendly competition never hurt anybody! If you like your fun to be a bit more on the exhilarating side, you can’t go wrong with racing go-karts.
