Anyone else sick of hearing, “Mom – I’m bored!” My kids have already started this summer and I’ve already had it! There are so many outdoor activities near me for them to do, it’s impossible for them to be bored. It’s literally IMPOSSIBLE. I spent about an hour yesterday going through all the activities that they could do (even some without me!) during the summer.
Outdoor Activities Near Me
If you’re like me and looking for activities for your kids to do this summer, take the time to think about what you have near you. It’s not always easy to think about the questions outdoor activities near me, but it’s something that is important for you to do. I’m all about making sure I have a solid list and you should, too!
When you’re sitting down to think about outdoor activities near me, think about 5 things:
1. What’s one thing all y kids will enjoy?
2. How far is the activity from my house?
3. Will the outdoor activity be free?
4. Is the outdoor activity something we could do again and again?
5. Is it an activity that my kids could do on their own?
I know coming up with a solid list of outdoor activities near me is something that will be personal to families. I know that there are things in Rhode Island that families won’t be able to do in other states (and vice versa). In order to get you thinking and going about summer activities and things to do with your kids in the summer, I wanted to create a master list for you.
Look at this list as a guide. Make sure it’s a list that you know you can look at and be inspired from for your family. Maybe you will highlight items and keep it for later in the summer. The point is it to make sure you know that you have a stndby list to get you started. It’s not always easy coming up with ideas!
Here are 51 outdoor activities for the summer. These are all activities that you can do when thinking about outdoor activities near me. I know that not all of these you will be able to do, but I just wanted to get a list started for you! It’s a fun list and even as I was putting it together I was thinking about my kids.

My biggest piece of advice for you right now is to take this list and then create a massive Summer Bucket List, too. I love to sit down with my kids and come up with ideas for summer activities. My kids range in age from 6-15 years old, so it’s important to have a list that covers something for everyone!
We create 100 Summer Bucket List Ideas to help you out, too! This DOES include indoor activities, too but I just wanted you to get an idea of what you could do with your kids. It’s just a massive brain dump. That’s the easiest way for me to describe creating a Summer Bucket List.
I hope you take the time to create outdoor activities near me lists for you and your family. I feel like it’s something that will definitely help drive your summer plans. Thankfully right now with families being able to do more and more, it’s still important to make sure you’re taking all precautions.
Summer activities are important for families to do together and right now we’ve got to do everything we can to ensure this happens! I’m all about keeping my 5 kids as busy as can be this summer for the sanity of us all. I know we can’t fly anywhere or travel far and wide, but there is so much to do around where we live.
