Once you’ve completed your look with a hot new pair of glasses, dive into everything the summer has to offer with our top ideas for fun activities in the sun:

  • Get into a good book. Grab a blanket, hit the park and spend a few hours in the sun with a good book. Check out the SCOJO Book Club for July reads you won’t want to miss.
  • Hit up a patio. Sangria al fresco? Yes, please. A patio is the perfect place for a midweek catch-up, especially if you find yourself needing a break from work life.

  • Start gardening. There’s something undeniably rewarding about growing things in the summer. Visit your local nursery to get set up with shrubs or flowers, or buy seeds online to start your ideal veggie garden. Working with a smaller space like an apartment balcony? Potted herbs yield delicious rewards for a small footprint.
  • Attend an outdoor event. Summer concerts, outdoor music and film festivals are a big part of summer in NYC, with events like SummerStage and Lincoln Center’s Summer for the City going all summer long. Not in NYC? Be on the lookout for similar summer events near you—Google and social media are great ways to learn about what’s going on in your neighborhood.
  • Enjoy a beachy weekend. Whether seaside or lakeside, a day at the beach is the quintessential summer activity. Beach too far? Try your local outdoor pool on a sunny day; studies show that time spent in the ‘blue space’ near water can positively impact your mood.


  • Stay active with summer sports. Sunny weather calls for disc golf, beach volleyball or pickup soccer. To stay in top form, hydrate often, apply sunscreen liberally and don’t forget a hat or sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV light.
  • Give foraging a try. Foraging is soaring in popularity on platforms like Instagram and TikTok, with vegan forager Alexis Nelson the ‘Black Forager’ snagging a James Beard award this year. Start with plants that are easy to identify, and be absolutely confident you know what you’re looking for—you’ll be rewarded with tasty seasonal eats like mulberries and black raspberries.
  • Throw a barbeque. What’s your signature barbeque style—Kansas City, Memphis, Carolina or Texas? Regardless of the answer, there’s really nothing like a hot day, an even hotter grill, a cold drink and great company.
  • Remember to rest. Summers are often packed with things to do: a slew of weddings, camping trips, vacations and get-togethers with families and friends. Pace your frenetic activity with quiet days that will get you relaxed, rested, and recharged for everything you have going on.


We hope you enjoy the rest of your summer as much as we’re enjoying ours! Now if you’ll excuse us, we have some margaritas to drink.
