How to Have an Adventure in Your Own Backyard

You don’t have to hop on your own private jet to have a memorable adventure that you’ll look back on fondly for years to come. You don’t have to spend a boatload of cash to fill up a camera with stunning pictures. All you need to have an adventure is a backyard and friends and family who are willing to come along with you.

The best things in life are free. Take advantage of the discount. Here is how to have an adventure in your own backyard!

Host a Backyard Movie Night Under the Stars

In order to host a backyard movie night under the stars, you don’t have to pull out all the stops. You don’t need a top-of-the-line projector or a professional-grade screen (though, admittedly, those things wouldn’t hurt!). All you need is a sheet, a projector, an old classic movie, and a sense of camaraderie with the people you’re watching with.

Few things are better than cuddling up with your loved ones under the stars and enjoying a favorite film while munching on homemade popcorn. Who wants to pay for overpriced movie theater popcorn anyway?

Plan an Elaborate Dinner Party in Your Backyard

There’s just something so magical about gathering around a bountiful feast with family and friends. Breaking bread with those you hold dearest is one of life’s most fantastic adventures—and it’s so simple and accessible.

To have an elaborate, adventurous dinner party in your backyard, take the traditional trappings of any other dinner party you’ve hosted and move it all outside. Invite everyone you know to join in on the fun. Before you know it, you’ll be transported to another time and place—beyond the cares of this world.

Build a Temporary Backyard Fort Using Found Objects

The adults aren’t the only ones that get to have backyard adventures! Let the kids have some of the fun by letting them build temporary forts using objects they find around the yard or in the shed.

You’ll be amazed by how creative kids can be. Their imaginations know no bounds, so it’s an adventure in and of itself to watch them create.

Getting to watch that creativity in action is precious and priceless. What more could you want from a backyard adventure?
