Your ‘Hot Girl Summer’ doesn’t have to be non-existent because you don’t have 100 billion dollars to go on a vacation; you can have fun locally and the best part? Think of it as your CSR to your country because you are buying local to grow your home currency! What is that saying about two birds and one stone again?
VISIT AN AMUSEMENT PARK
You can pick a day on the weekend to either hangout with a group of friends or family just to create memories and relax. There’s nothing more precious than getting a kick of adrenaline and being surrounded by the people you love! You can check for a local Amusement park in your area, in Lagos, Nigeria there is Hi-Impact Planet and Cape Town in South Africa has Gold Reef City.
ORGANISE A GAME’S NIGHT
If you would rather be indoors, you could host your family or a group of friends to a fun night of games, food and drinks, depending on your preference. You can have the invitees bring foods, drink, board games or any game really, the key thing is, it is a very low-budget but fun activity.
VISIT A PRIVATE BEACH OR RESORT
If you still crave that out of daily chaos experience, visiting a resort or a private beach with family or friends is another great option for summer. There are various resorts and private beaches around that would allow you to book from a day to as many days you can afford; you can have a beach party or barbecue depending on your style. As I said earlier, ‘hot girl summer’ doesn’t have to be cancelled.
WEEKEND IN WITH YOUR CREW
You could plan a weekend of stay-in activities with your crew. From having a pasta and wine dinner to watching movies on Netflix while snacking, a tight crew games day/night with karaoke sessions; this could be your most memorable weekend yet.
TAKE A ROAD TRIP TO LOCAL TOURIST SITES
Road trips are a good way to bond and make memories, you can visit some local tourist or historical sites with friends or family, just to learn new things about your heritage and other historical facts. Places like Badagry in Lagos, Abeokuta in Ogun state, Butare in Rwanda are great places to visit.
