Summer Activities To Do With Your BFF
This summer I plan to do a lot of things with my best friends and a few of my bucket list summer fun can be found below.
If you have a BFF and plan on doing fun things this summer, let me know what they are.
Basically, the goal is not to spend too much money.
If you can find fun things to do for free with friends, I want to hear it.
I might want to steal one or two ideas from you.
Here are a few affordable things to with your BFF this Summer:
1. Plan A Dinner Party
Dinner parties are fun and much more affordable than going out to eat at a restaurant. This can become really expensive!
If you are living on a tight budget like most of us, you can host a dinner party at home and even invite your friends to bring a few dishes so you can all share. Almost like a potluck if you wish!
Not sure how to plan a dinner party, use Pinterest!
Lucky for me, my homegirl is an amazing cook and her food is always delicious. Seriously!
2. Attend A Craft Fair in Town
Craft fairs are fun and almost every town hosts them.
Personally, I haven’t attended a fair in a few years but I did host one a few weeks ago.
You can find free local fairs to attend in your home town, mingle and have a little fun especially since the weather is at its best.
Go online and see what craft fairs are happening in your area. Make note of some that interest you and be sure to attend them with your BFF.
Out of all our tips of things to do in the summer with your best friend, this is one I have not done.
Shame on me.
3. Plan A Road Trip
If you are looking for things to do with your bff when bored, I dare you to plan a road trip.
Even if it’s a day trip, I think everyone should plan a road trip! I love road trips, I use to do a lot of road trips all the time and this summer seems like the perfect time to do this again.
My best tip would be to find a place you haven’t visited before and plan a little road trip to explore it.
Apart from gas, you won’t be spending too much on your adventures.
4. Go Hiking This Summer
What better way to put in a little workout session than when you go hiking? Hiking is an amazing activity and should be done at least several times over the summer.
If you are looking for things to do with friends for free, then obviously hiking should be on that list.
Basically, this activity won’t cost you a thing unless you hike at a location that requires a fee.
If you have great places to hike around your area like a waterfall area, or a walking trail then absolutely take advantage of it.
It’s one of the best things to do with your BFF that is actually really affordable.

If you have to go to the hairdresser or even the spa for the day, just do it.
7. Create a Playlist on YouTube and Dance the Summer Away
There are plenty of fun things to do with your best friend at home.
Why not dance the summer away?
Not only will this be a great way to get in shape, but you will also enjoy great music and this does not cost a thing! Did you ever watch Grey’s Anatomy?
Or do you still watch that show? I totally do! And if you do, you will remember that Meredith Grey and her best friend Cristina Yang always had a dance-off!
Well go ahead and create a playlist on YouTube and have your summer dance-offs.
Find your person!
8. Binge Watch A TV show together on Netflix
Speaking of Grey’s Anatomy, watch a TV show together!
One of the many things you should do with your BFF this summer should be to watch a TV show!
Find an oldie but amazing TV show to binge-watch like Friends, The Mindy Project or Jane The Virgin!
Yes, I am totally into those shows, if you have any other suggestions, leave them below!
9. Do A Free Yoga Class Together
They are countless fun things to do with your BFF this summer!
You just need to hunt them down.
For example, I know in my home area, they are a few yoga classes you can attend and they are completely free.
These usually take place in outdoor parks so you can enjoy nature and fresh air at the same time.
10. Volunteer together and give back
I think summer is the best time to do some volunteer work and give back to the community.
I love helping people in general but I would love to do some work with kids.
Maybe at a local hospital, playgroups and other special places we might be needed.
Non-for-profit organizations are always looking for volunteers to help out.
Put on your volunteer hat and get helping this summer.
11. Enjoy A Good Bike Ride With Your Best Friend
Stretch your legs and enjoy a good bike ride with your BFF!
The sun is out, what is stopping you from enjoying a great bike ride around your area? Go to the park, go to the city and just enjoy the fresh air.
There are plenty of awesome things to do with your best friend during summertime, I suggest fitting in at least one or two physical activities.
Summer is a time to enjoy the outdoors as much as you can, so do it!
12. Hit The Beach With Your BFF
We know this should be top on our list, but we wanted to put it towards the end!
You should find time to hit the beach in your area as frequently as you possibly can!
Trust me, summer isn’t too long if you are out having fun.
Be sure to throw in some beach time!
13. Earn Some Extra Money For Extra Activities
Find a way to make extra money on the side by either looking for amazing part-time jobs or working extra hours at your current job.
With the extra money you make, do something for yourself that doesn’t involve paying the bill.
Take a week to travel or plan that mini-vacation we mentioned on point #5!
Having some extra spending money will give you the freedom to do even more with your BFF this summer!

14. Cuddles, Wine and Netflix

Why not add your favourite wine to the mix, wear some cute pajama and snuggle!
Wine, snuggles and a movie are always fun!
I like to have a good laugh and this combo sounds too good to put off!
15. Play Board games
If you are looking for more fun things to do with your best friend at home, you will enjoy playing board games.
I love playing board games, especially games like Monopoly and or Finance!
These games can become extremely competitive and so come with your game hat on.
This is the perfect opportunity to include other friends in the mix.
Board games are fun and if you have never played them, take the time to try some out.
16. Plan A DIY Spa with your Best Friends
Why not have an affordable DIY Home Spa date with your BFF!
This is a fun activity and you can do facials, your nails, sip on some cocktails and listen to Zen music.
There are plenty of ways to practice self-care and this should be done often!
A great way to relax over the summer!
17. Swap Out Clothes with Your BFF
I have already shared plenty of exciting and fun things to do with your best friend at home.
This one has got to be my favourite one.
Instead of spending money on new clothes even though we have a list of online shopping hacks you should follow, shop in each other’s closets.
Basically, go into your closet and find clothes that you no longer want to wear!
Make sure they are still wearable.
Then everyone can bring all their piles together and you can swap out your clothes.
Any remaining items can be donated to a women’s shelter!
And there you have it, an epic list of fun things to do with your best friend at home, outside or when you are bored.
Which of the items on the list are you most excited about doing first this summer?
Summer is all about having fun, so take the time to have some fun!
