The Best Ways to Enjoy Every Season
Everyone has their own favourite season, but if you are fortunate enough to live somewhere that has four distinct seasons, it can be very enjoyable. It’s great to embrace the changing weather and get excited for the different activities that are available throughout the year. Here are some of the best ways to enjoy yourself as the seasons change.
While winter may bring a lot of snow shovelling and windshield scraping, it also brings sports and activities that can only be enjoyed during the winter months. For people that love the high adrenaline thrills of sports like snowboarding and skiing, they live for the winter months and only hope the season lasts longer this year. One of the best experiences you can have is taking a vacation to a gorgeous ski resort and barrelling down the slopes for a weekend. La Tania is a well-kept secret amongst skiing fans, and it is truly one of the best places to enjoy the winter months. You might even run into a celebrity while you’re here.
Spring is an amazing season that most would say is the perfect temperature. When winter finally ends, you should be outside enjoying the fantastic weather and sunshine. In the spring, I love to travel and experience new cultures during a time when everything is not as busy as in the summer tourist season. Architecture tours are a great way to get outside and learn some of the rich history attached to different sites. In a country like Italy alone, you can see many famous historical places like The Colosseum, and The Leaning Tower of Pisa, or unique sites like Casino di Venezia, which first opened its doors in 1638 making it one of the oldest casinos in the world.
For those that don’t feel like traveling, luckily there are many activities you can enjoy right at home in your own city. Riding a bicycle is great exercise and the perfect way to get outside. Spring is also the best time to start working on your home garden. From flowers to vegetables, you can transform your backyard into something spectacular. During the springtime, many sports like baseball and distance running get started, so if you are into fitness you can join a local league and meet some like-minded athletes.
Of course, summer may be the favourite season for many people, and for good reason. With the sunshine overhead and the worries of winter far behind, this time of year brings out the best in communities and most people seem happier to be getting some natural Vitamin D outside. For cities around the world, summer means lots of festivals for everything from art, to music, to local foods and traditions. These can be some of the best opportunities to bond with your community and embrace local culture if you are traveling.
No summer vacation would be complete without a trip to the beach however. It’s nothing short of magical to enjoy the sunshine and ocean on a beautiful beach. Regardless if that’s in California or Bali, there are many choices to pick from if you find yourself planning a summer beach vacation.
While everyone has their favourite seasons, Autumn might be the most underappreciated of them all. If you are lucky enough to live in a location with a true autumn period, you will find that it is one of the most beautiful times of the entire year. All of nature is changing and the air around you is crisp and fresh, watching the leaves change colours is one of the best parts of the season. With Halloween and many fall festivals coming up, it’s fun to decorate your home and get into the fall spirit. One of my favourite activities during this time is taking a trip to the local orchards and picking bags full of apples to take home. With the evenings getting colder out, this is the best time of year to curl up and watch movies on the couch by the fireplace.
