7 Budget Friendly Ideas For Outdoor Lovers

Twist on Favorite Games

Getting outside is not only fun, it’s also good for you. While a lot of people are more interested in staying indoors with their eyes glued to cell phones, TVs, and tablets, a lot of you absolutely love the outdoors and want to enjoy it as much as possible.

Of course, many of us would love to head to the lake in a new boat for some sun and fun. However, that’s not an option for everyone, so we’ve got a few ideas for those looking for a more budget-friendly outdoor excursion this weekend.

1. A Newish Favorite Pastime

No matter where you live, there’s a fun free activity that you can enjoy alone or with the family. For instance, geocaching enables you to use your cellphone or a GPS receiver to hide and seek containers with various “caches” at specific outdoor locations.

2. Something for Everyone

Many of us have state parks or even historical places near us that we’ve never taken the time to visit. A lot of states have annual passes for the parks and a quick web search will help you find interesting historical locations that you can visit for free.

3. A New Twist on an Old Favorite

There are probably at least a few places around your city or town that are just waiting for you to visit for the first time. These days, you can see your area with fresh eyes with an upgraded scavenger hunt.

This app is a perfect opportunity for you and a few friends to buy some women’s caps and get outside and enjoy the city. It gives you a limited time period to compete and solve as many tasks as possible. When you find the places and buildings on your list, you upload them into the app for points. Whoever ends up with the most points at the end, wins.

4. Movie Night

Instead of grabbing the tablet or laptop for movie watching, there are plenty of affordable projectors that can transform your backyard into an outdoor theater. Many come with large screens, but you can also use a white sheet or just project it on the garage door or the side of your house.

If you’re enjoying a staycation and want something fun to do in the backyard, there are a couple of games that you may enjoy. Giant Jenga is fun for the whole family and there’s even Yard Yahtzee, glow in the dark mini-golf courses, jumbo Connect Four, and a lot more.

6. Go Camping

You can head off to the lake or a nearby park for camping, but you don’t even have to leave the house for this activity. With a cheap tent or just a sheet and blanket “fort,” you can camp in the backyard.

Grab a small fire pit to give it that true camping feel, make some s’mores, and combine it with tip 4 and enjoy the outdoors just a few feet from your backdoor.

7. Gardening

With so many great instructional books and videos available today, even if you don’t have a green thumb you can grow a great vegetable, herb, or flower garden. Not only is it an affordable way to get more time outside, but having fresh vegetables that you grew yourself means that you’re likely to enjoy them even more.

We should all spend more time outside, especially considering the age of social distancing and limited capacity venues. The best thing is, you can have a lot of fun outdoors without having to spend a lot of money. With the tips above, you can enjoy the fresh air and sun either alone or with some friends. Who knows, you may even end up starting a new tradition!
