Fun Things To Do with your Friends

I’ve missed so many things over the last few months, one of them being my FRIENDS! We’re “done” with ZOOMing, we’re ready to do together and have fun. I’ve created a list of fun things to do with your friends because I’m so ready! Friends are part of what makes life worth living, especially really (really!) good ones!

Fun Things To Do with your Friends


When it comes to fun things to do with your friends I know with a few true good friends, you could do ANYTHING and it could and would be fun. I wanted to come up with a solid list of fun things to do with your friends because I know it’s easier (sometimes) to look at a list and work off of it.


I know I’m personally asked a lot by readers to share fun things to do with your best friend. I’m happy to be able to share some of the top things that I like to do with friends. As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized more and more that it’s not just about how much time you have with your friends, its what you do.


When I created this list of fun things to do with your friends, I want you to think about what it was like when you were a kid again. All you wanted to do was laugh and have a good time. You just wanted to forget all the worries and stresses in the world. You just wanted to do your true unique self with your best friend and friends and you were!


As I created this fun list of things to do with your friends, I just did a huge brain dump. I didn’t think about seasons or geography. I know that things to do in the summer with your best friend will be different than things you would do in the winter.
