Have you used up all your vacation days before the summer? Don’t fret! You can still make the most out of your summer if you are stuck in the city. In fact, there’s plenty to do, you just need to know where to start. Follow these quick tips that will help you make the most of your favourite season, even if you’re trapped at home. 


If you’re planning to spend some quality time around the home this summer, why not freshen it up a little? A new coat of paint, new summery pillow covers, lighter window blinds and colourful rugs can really brighten up your home and give it a true summer feel. Just don’t forget about your patio space! After a long winter, the backyard can often look dull and lifeless. All you need is some fresh plants and new patio furniture to transform the look and feel to one you can really enjoy when lounging out back in the hot summer sun! Redecorating truly brings a whole new meaning to a staycation.

Throw a Backyard Party

Speaking of patio space, now that you’ve decorated it, why not throw a party to show it off? And with longer days and warmer weather, now’s the best time to catch up with friends by taking full advantage of your BBQ and lounge area.

Plant a Garden

Have you always wanted to plant a garden to enjoy fresh vegetables everyday? Now you can! If you start this spring, you’ll be able to enjoy an endless supply of fruits and vegetables all summer long! But that’s not all, planting a garden can also help to improve your mood after a long day of work. Connecting with nature will calm your mind and also provide a certain level of joy as you watch what you’ve planted grow. 

Be a Tourist for a Day

Take a day off and find all the interesting sites and things to do in the area. If you live in Toronto, climb the CN tower or jump on a bus tour. Alternatively, spend a day at the Aquarium or the Zoo and connect with nature. You’ll be surprised at all the new things you’ll learn about your own city by exploring it through the eyes of a tourist.
