Fall is just around the corner! But that doesn't mean summer has to be over quite yet... Are you getting anxiety over the fact that pumpkin spice lattes are already back?! Well, don't worry! We've put together our list of everything we are still squeezing into our last few weeks of summer. The best part is this list won't break the bank, but it will absolutely help you appreciate the last bits of the outdoors and the warm days of summertime. Get a little inspo and get outdoors!
See a movie outdoors
This is the best time of the year to hit the beaches! The sun has been warming up the water all summer long so it feel sooo nice and it's still totally hot enough to do a beach day! Some of our favorite beaches are... Huntington Beach State Park, Crescent Bay in Laguna, and El Matador State Beach in Malibu!
Throw A BBQ
Just because Fall is around the corner doesn't mean grilling season has come to an end! In fact, this late summer, early fall/harvest season is some of the best for fresh produce! Gather the gang and host a farewell to summer BBQ! You'll also definitely want to make our frozen adult-version lemonades while you're at it.
Have a picnic in the park
This is one of our favorite ways to spend a Sunday or even weekday night! The evening light hasn't completely gone yet, we've still got a few more hours than we will have in a few short weeks! So enjoy it while you can! We love to bring a bottle of rosé, a good cheese, a baguette, and some fresh fruit. Simple, but oh so perfect!
Go to an outdoor market
It could be your local farmer's market, or a stapled flea market like LA's Rose Bowl Flea Market and the Melrose Trading Post. And don't forget to check out the OC Market Place (at the OC Fair grounds) happening Sept 8-9 only! There's still so many good end of summer markets and fleas to take advantage of before its too chilly!
Take a weekend trip to Catalina
The easiest, but often forgotten, weekend getaway in the LA area is Catalina Island! Make the most of your last summer weekends, with a trip to Avalon while it's still warm out! You can snorkel, kayak, jetski, lay out on the sand, eat a ton of seafood, or even take a tour to see some Bison! It's the perfect, laid-back beach town and the best last hurrah to celebrate summer!
What's on your end of summer list?! How are you enjoying these last weeks and weekends before Fall hits?! We'd love to know! Comment below! Cheers to the long days of summertime...
