Five Unique Things to Do this Summer

Tent camping in the mountains

It’s fun to think outside the box — and out of the house — when it comes to summer activities. After spending so much time inside our own homes, it’s extra rewarding to spend our time off enjoying the beauty of nature.

Here are five fun ideas for unique summer activities that will give you memories to cherish for years to come. We’ll need those sunny memories once winter rolls around again!

Float Trip

Until you experience it for yourself, there’s nothing that can quite prepare you for a float trip. Find an adventurous crew of family or friends and let the currents take you along. 

The perfect river trip is a blend of action and tranquility. The rapids will thrill and exhaust you as you wrestle to keep your boat on course (and upright), while the smoother waters will put your spirit at ease as you crack open a cold drink and watch the world go by.

Whale Watching

This activity is going to be easier to swing for anyone living near a coast, and even if you don’t, we promise it’s worth the journey. See some of the most beautiful creatures on Earth up close and personal in their natural habitat.

This is the perfect trip for wildlife lovers. With an experienced and knowledgeable guide, you’ll feel like you’re in the right in the middle of a National Geographic documentary.

Travel by Train

This is just what you need if you want to enjoy the beauty of nature without breaking a sweat. The United States boasts some of the most scenic train journeys in the world, taking you by countless mountains, lakes, and rivers.

Pick a destination as far away as possible and see our beautiful, expansive land like you’ve never seen it before. Enjoy freshly cooked meals as you watch the world go by. Even better, drift off to sleep in the comfort of a sleeping car, knowing that even more adventure awaits you in the morning.


Nothing beats the experience of sleeping underneath the stars. There are so many incredible national and state parks across the country that you’re never too far from a great camping spot.

After a long hike in the summer sun, relax by the light of the campfire. Bring a Naturepedic pillow with you to ensure that you get the best quality sleep even when you’re away from home. You’ll appreciate it all the more when you’re getting up early to watch the sunrise over the natural landscape right outside your tent.

Wine Tasting

Indulge your greatest gourmand fantasies on a trip to one of the nation’s many spectacular wine regions. With a guided tasting tour of a local vineyard, you can refine your palate and soak up the sun. Believe it or not, wine is now produced in all 50 states.

The beauty of nature looks even better when you have a good glass of wine in your hand.
