5 Ways to Celebrate Summer with Meetup

We’re 9 days into Summer already. It’s time to get moving, try something new, explore your neighborhood and treat yourself to some serious summer fun, Meetup style.

Get moving

Fitness Meetup groups sport more Meetups per month than most other groups. You’re bound to find something to get your heart rate up that fits nicely into your schedule.

Play recess at a bubble soccer game or join a dodgeball league. New moms can get down with stroller fitness.

Or, embrace the zen, like these Central Park yogis.

 Try Something New

We all feel a little more adventurous this time of year. As temperatures rise, so does that restless voice inside urging us to live a little.

Outdoor Adventure Meetups thrive during this time of year, and boast extra high RSVPs, so it’s the perfect time to jump outside your comfort zone, and meet fellow thrill seekers.

The Beach Bum Social Club takes in beautiful views while paddle boarding in Naples, Florida.

…and once you’ve mastered that, you can move on to ATVs, climbing, or even spearfishing.

The Hiking Hikers Hiking Group of Phoenix, Arizona, is arguably the most aptly named Meetup of all time. With 98 upcoming Meetups, they understand the value of embracing opportunity, going somewhere new, taking in the sights and seeing what’s out there.

While gearing up for a recent hike, the host reminded members, “As always, bring…your sense of adventure!”

 Stay local

Members of the Lend a Hand Volunteers Meetup—who call themselves ‘World Changers’—know they can make a big difference close to home.

Our neighborhoods are never as vibrant and alive as they are right now, so show them some love. Clean up a local beach, like the World Changers in Tampa, maintain a trail, or grow something at your local community garden.

Treat Yourself

If you’ve gotten this far and you still aren’t beat, remember you can also find your people indulging in the simple things. Take a cue from these Tapas Lovers from Madrid, Spain: sit back, relax…and enjoy your Summer. On Meetup.
