3 Summer Activities To Do Before Winter

If you just purchased one of the Minneapolis houses for sale or you live anywhere subject to chilly winter weather, you'll want to take advantage of every last bit of summer's sunshine and warm temperatures. Getting outdoors and enjoying an activity means that not only are you likely to have a good time, but it's good for you - and exercise that doesn't really feel like exercise is the best kind of all. 



    Wakeskating

    Want to try something new? Wakeskating is like wakeboarding, only you aren't bound to the board in any way, providing more freedom with your ride. While you won't be board bound, it's safe as you'll be secured by a rope. The rider is towed by a motorboat across the water and can perform all sorts of mid-air tricks. There are many impressive stunts they can do with this watersport, including flipping and spinning. It takes some practice and it can be challenging to stay on the platform while riding, losing balance and heading into the water, but it's a whole lot of fun once you've been able to master the sport. While it's taken off across the globe, wakeskating originated in the U.S. which, not surprisingly, has some of the lakes for the sport you'll find anywhere. Skyscanner.com named its top picks which included, among others,: Lake Powell, Utah; Lake Shasta, California; Wailua River, Kauai; Table Rock Lake, Missouri and Lake Austin, Texas. 

    Snorkeling

    Snorkeling is incredibly easy to learn and you don't have to travel overseas to enjoy it. In fact, you'll find some great places to snorkel right in the continental U.S. like the Florida Keys. John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo is considered one of the best, as the first underwater park to open in the country, spread across 70 nautical miles. The crystal-clear blue water is home to a wide variety of colorful fish, sea turtles and shipwrecks. For those on the west coast, consider Catalina Island, just 22 miles southwest of Los Angeles, accessed by ferry.  Casino Point and Lover’s Cove are two of the top spots here, with Lover's Cove boasting one of the highest concentrations of fish found anywhere in the region.

    Disc Golf

    If you don't want to get wet or don't have a decent body of water nearby, odds are, there's a disc golf course somewhere near you. One of the world's fastest growing sports, it's like club golf, but played with a disc that's similar to a Frisbee. Another plus is that most disc golf courses are free to play on and a quality set of beginner discs costs as little as $25. People of all ages can try it from tiny tots and teens to seniors. Get out in the fresh air, enjoy picturesque scenery, and with many courses featuring elevation changes, you’ll not give your mind and body the benefits walking offers, but from hill climbing, while improving your focus and concentration at the same time. DG Course Review is one of the best sites to search for a course, with over 6,000 different options plus reviews, so you'll know what to expect.
