Things To Do In The Last Half Of Summer

Hello all of you Arts Enthusiasts!

Summer is half way over already! How terrible! It seems like only yersterday we were finishing up our exams and looking forward to the long summer ahead. I don't know about you, but the time has seemed to fly by for me. Sometimes I feel like I haven't done anything! So, in response to this feeling, I have decided to make the most of the second half of summer. My July and August are full of camping trips, birthday parties, cottage weekends, day trips and festivals. I have made sure that not one weekend goes to waste!

For all of you who feel like you need to come up with some fun stuff to do for the second half of summer, but don't know what, let me give you some ideas!

1) Go camping! There are TONS of national parks and camping areas in Ontario. Some are close, some are farther away. I go to Algonquin Park every year for a wilderness canoe trip. When I'm there this year I'll be going on a route where I will see waterfalls and canyons and hopefully some moose and other wildlife. Also, there's nothing quite like sitting around a quiet campfire, talking it up with friends while wolves howl in the background.

2) Head to the beach! Even though Lake Ontario is super cold, the beach is a great place to just get together with friends and enjoy the summer weather! Bring a frisbee or a football and have some good old fashioned fun outdoors. The best part about the beaches is that they are close by and cost NOTHING!

3) Check out Richmond Street and the Entertainment District! From Wednesday-Saturday the clubs are open and tons of people are out to have a good time while moving to the beats of a good tune! During the summer the entertainment district is a fun place to go becuase you don't freeze while waiting in line ups and the overall experience starts off much more pleasantly.

4) Hang out at Dundas Square! Dundas Square has so many different events going on all the time! Even when there is nothing really planned, almost every night there is a concert or busker performance. It's also a nice place to just hang out with friends and enjoy an ice cream cone or something while taking in city life.
