Play Badminton in a Park

A potluck dinner party

Host a banquet and ask everyone to bring a dish to share. If you’re not comfortable with cooking, maybe attempt to find out how to cook a replacement dish along side your friends.

Host a spa day

Give each other manicures. Try out new hairstyles. Make some facial masks or exfoliates using natural, at-home ingredients. Then drink mimosas.

Movie marathon

Log into Netflix and watch every episode of “Stranger Things” Or do an ’80s movie marathon, watching “Pretty in Pink,” “The Breakfast Club” and every one of our old favorites. Don’t have a Netflix membership? Get the free trial just for the marathon!

Go to the park

Pack a picnic. Hang out. Watch people. Play on the swings.

Have an organization party

Set up each day of every weekend where you attend each of your friends’ houses and help them clean out a closet, a room, a garage, whatever. Serve drinks and food and trade stuff among yourselves.

Hold a yard sale

After all of that cleaning, why not hang out together and make some extra cash too?

Concerts in the park

All summer long, many parks host free concerts. Go with your friends. Hang out, bring a picnic dinner. This is a very relaxing way to chill out on a hot summer night after work.

Play board games

Drag out the Scrabble or the Yahtzee. You can hang out and play all sorts of games with large groups or small ones. Hold a tournament and compete against each other. Here’re some board games ideas.

Video game tournament

Not into board games? OK. Well, how about a video game tournament? Whether it’s the latest dancing game or “Call of Duty,” play against each other and award prizes (or food) to the winners.

Grab a ball and a bat and go play baseball at the local park. Grab a basketball or a tennis racket. Most parks have courts and fields you can use for free as long as there isn’t an organized event going on.

Go to the school play

This might cost a little for admission, but it’s a great way to support your community and have a fun time.

Iron Chef night

Bring your friends over and have an Iron Chef night where you cook dinner out of only the items in your pantry. No buying anything!

Dig out the old croquet set — or borrow your Mom’s — and play croquet. Do it! Totally fun.

Go on a walking tour of your town

Most towns or cities have a historic district. Find out if there is a walking tour available. If not, make one up!

Scavenger hunt.

Put your friends to the test — yes, this is for grown-ups — to find different things in your city…like a certain bike rack, a vintage sign, that sort of thing. The winner gets a dinner cooked by the losers.

Find out when the free days are at your local museum or zoo

Most have them and they can be great fun to visit with friends.

Hold a quilting bee

No, you don’t have to be fancy — or old — for this. Grab some old T-shirts that you love, old jeans, whatever. Cut them into squares and sew them together. Who knows? Maybe it will become a regular thing?

Go to Open Mic night

Your town is likely harbouring some great talent at an open mic night that has no cover and cheap drinks!

Go to a religious service

Even if you’re not religious, going to a service in an unfamiliar religion can be enlightening and a great way to meet new people.

Find a swimming hole

Head to the old town swimming hole — or find a new one. What a great way to spend a lazy afternoon with friends.

Start a book club, card club (canasta anyone?), sewing club or scrapbooking club

Something you and your friends like. My parents used to belong to a cooking club where once a month all of their friends gathered at one house and the host family cooked a meal from a different country. I learned a lot about food that year.
