2. Hiking/Camping.

Go return to your roots and get in touch with nature, hiking and camping can be great with friends and getting out of the office and enjoy some nice refreshing air. The resource http://trails.com can be used to find trails near you so you can get out and roam.

3. Fishing.

You've seen all the Instagram photos of those guys who manage to reel in some of the biggest fish you've seen. Well now in the summer is a great time for you to get out there and perfect and hone your fishing skills. If you've never been, everyone knows someone who loves to fish and would also love an excuse to get back out there and offer some wisdom.

Think of any place that has water. Well there is a kayak or canoe there for you. Canoeing and kayaking is not only a great way to enjoy lakes and rivers, but also can be a nice little workout too.
