Things to Do Before Summer Ends

Have you been able to do all of the things you had planned to do during the summer? It’s nearing the end of August and the summer will soon be over, so make sure you don’t let it pass before doing everything on your summer to-do list! In this week’s Peachtree Place Blog, we’ve got a short list of things we think you should do before summer ends, if you haven’t done them already.   

Have a Picnic

When was the last time you went on a picnic? The weather here in Columbia, SC is nice for a few months more, so we recommend using that opportunity to have a nice picnic with some friends or a loved one. Prepare some foods that are easily handled with hands, side dishes like chips, and drinks for everyone! Pack a nice blanket to lie on while you enjoy the nice weather!


With so many things going on in our lives, it can be easy to forget to stop and smell the roses, or in this case, gaze at the stars. Though it’s possible to look at a decent amount of stars, we suggest getting out of the city away from the lights to view the vastness of the night sky. Even though it’s summer, it could get chilly, so bring a blanket and some hot chocolate to keep yourself warm! 

Go Hiking

Get some exercise before the summer ends by getting out into the wilderness! Find yourself a nice hiking trail of your experience level and strap on those hiking shoes. Pack yourself some trail snacks, water, and a first aid kit to ensure that you’re hydrated, fed, and ready for any emergencies that may arise. Hiking is a good cardiovascular activity, so pace yourself. Make your hiking experience safer and more fun by inviting some friends to go with you so you aren’t hiking alone! Safety first. 


It’s time to get out of your apartment and seize the day!
