Things To Do Over the Summer
By Carlos Lopez and Alicia Cram
As the school year comes to an end we are one step closer to summer vacation. The sudden amount of free time and seemingly endless opportunities throughout the summer will probably be the first thing that comes to mind, and as such, these are some things that you can do with your friends (or on your own–we don’t judge!) during this summer.
1. Go swimming or go to the beach:
This one was a fairly obvious choice as we have the privilege of being situated right by the coast. A few of my favorite beaches are Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach, and of course, Corona Del Mar. These beaches are less visited than some of the other beaches in SoCal which means that you’ll be able to have a quieter, more calming experience. These beaches are also much cleaner than a lot of other beaches which all adds up to be an overall enjoyable experience.
2. Go watch a movie:
This one was another obvious choice but it still had to be mentioned on this list nonetheless. Some notable movies that are set to release in the summer are: Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (June 2), Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One (July 12), and Oppenheimer (July 21), for you Christopher Nolan fans.
3. Go to a concert:
While this option is usually more on the pricey side, I can almost guarantee you that it’ll be worth it in the end. I was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to go see Kendrick Lamar live and up close at the Crypto Arena last year, and while I did spend a healthy amount to go see him live, I can say that it was worth every dollar and cent. For more economically-savvy choices, you can also check out The Observatory in Santa Ana and House of Blues in Anaheim. It’s all to say that I’m sure that if you end up going to a concert this summer, you will be saying the same thing.
Here are some more little things you can do to enrich your summer:
