Dear Faris Buehler,
What are your favorite things to do on a nice, hot, summer day?

Dear Someone that’s very excited for summer,
Here are some great ideas for your beautiful summer days:
- Go on a picnic with some friends!
I know it sounds old-fashioned, but the experience of laying out a blanket, eating lots of food, and hanging out with your friends is a great activity to do on a nice day!
- Go somewhere new!
There are so many great and interesting destinations for day trips! Multnomah Falls, Tree-to-Tree adventure park, and countless different hikes to get you outside and enjoying the nice weather.
- Have a party!
There is nothing like having a good ol’ party with your friends. Pool parties, food parties, potlucks, and many other types are fun, no matter what they are as long as you’re with the people you enjoy!
- Go to the lake!
Hagg L ake is a great destination for hot summer days, with a nice cold lake to jump into with friends!
- Read some books!
Even though it’s summer, you should still make an attempt to do something that involves brain stimulation. Reading a variety of different genres of books helps strengthen the mind and acts as a filler for school. Plus there are a ton of great reads out there!
- Make homemade popsicles!
Popsicles are great summer snacks, and making them yourself provides for a unique experience and tasty result!
- Get an internship!
No matter what grade you are in, getting an internship is extremely beneficial in whatever endeavors you choose to embark upon!
- Go to the beach!
Anywhere on the Oregon coast provides a fun and different experience! The beach is a nice place to visit in the summer and can be a host to activities such as bonfires and roasting marshmallows. Yum!
- Go see a movie!
There are so many great movies coming out this summer, such as Finding Dory, The Legend of Tarzan, and Suicide Squad! Also, the theater is air conditioned!
- Go on a hike!
There are dozens of great destinations in the area to go on a hike! Features like rivers and waterfalls await you. Don’t forget to bring water, and stay hydrated!
