5 Ideas for Outdoor Recreation


Spending time outdoors provides a unique experience of interacting with nature. The physical exertion necessary contributes to keeping you in good shape. Enjoying recreational activities out of the home should not only be relegated to particular times in the year. You can encounter the great outdoors no matter the season with the most suitable activity for the time of year you are in. Here are a few ideas on how you can have fun outdoors no matter the weather.

1.    Winter Sledding

Sledding is a winter outdoor recreational staple for both children and adults. You can opt to go sledding around the hills in your area as an inexpensive and fun activity. Another option is to go sledding at the national forests and parks. This activity might call for planning, but it offers a diverse range of scenery and experience.

2.    Hiking

Taking a walk up a mountain or a hiking trail as you experience the sights and sounds nature has to offer is a memorable way to spend time outside. Plan your route well in advance and know what supplies you will need to carry with you for safety, nutrition and hydration purposes. Carry a compass and a portable battery charger for your cell phone in case of emergencies.

3.    Camping

Sheltering in the outdoors provides an opportunity for a change of pace and scenery. You can choose the rough-and-tumble of a traditional camping tent if you are the more hands-on type that loves roughing it out with nature. If you can't bear to leave modern conveniences when camping consider hiring or buying camper trailers to enjoy all the available home comforts while gazing at the stars.

4.    Skiing

Skiing is an outdoor winter favourite that improves your cardiovascular health. Look out for ski trails that national parks set aside during the winter or book a ski resort to enjoy the specially crafted ski routes and scenery.

5.    Scuba Diving

Scuba diving opens you up to a world of fascinating and unique marine life. Using the equipment, you get to see a lot of different underwater attractions. You can witness the beauty of the coral reefs first hand. You can also opt to go wreck diving; this is the exploration of shipwrecks!


There are different ways to enjoy the outdoors and experience nature's attractions. No matter what time of year or season it is you can have leisure time outside.

Run, Dribble, Pass and Shoot: A Sport and Rec Blog

Sport goes beyond fitness. It's also about culture. Through history, as cultures have melded together, they have shared and adopted each other's sporting games. This blog is devoted to the entire concept of sport and rec. Hopefully, there will be posts looking at the history of sport in the world, posts about how to enjoy these activities as much as possible, posts on how to find the perfect football jersey and much more. I also plan to look at recreational pursuits that are ideal for people who don't enjoy sport or who cannot play sport for any reason. Hi! My name is Cee-Cee, and I love sport and recreation. I hope you enjoy these posts.
