It’s that time of year again. The sun is out, the birds are singing, and it’s finally acceptable for you to wear those new sunglasses. You’ve been waiting for this opportunity since last October—ready to pack all those gloves and scarves and hats away. With springtime fast approaching, there are so many fantastic outdoor activities for you and your family, friends, or coworkers. So, we’ve gathered a list of our favorite things to do when our last snowman has melted.
Go for a bike ride
Grab your family or a few friends and pedal over to Brooklyn. As you cross the bridge, savor the breeze and the view. Don’t own a bike? Hop on a Citi Bike for the day! It’s an affordable way to experience everything this great city has to offer—especially during the spring and summer.
De-stress with outdoor yoga
Dying to get outside? Check out some of New York City’s outdoor fitness classes! Even if you’re not into yoga, you’ll get to enjoy the weather and maybe make some new friends in the process. Find out more about NYC Parks’ outdoor programs here.
Roller skate in the park
Okay, we know roller skating isn’t necessarily “cool” anymore. But it’s a great outdoor activity, and it’s actually a wonderful full-body workout. Get your significant other to join you! Just don’t forget to wear the appropriate safety gear—you can rent some if you need to.
Walk for a cause
As the city defrosts, charity walks become more and more frequent. Find a cause you’re passionate about and sign up for a walk or a 5k. If you’re feeling ambitious, train for a full- or half-marathon. Whether you prefer walking, jogging, or running, the activity is always more rewarding when you’re doing it with a purpose.
Have a picnic!
This is our personal favorite springtime activity. Grab your loved ones and head to the park for a memorable day out. You can even take your dog. Don’t have a dog? Offer to watch your friend’s pooch for the day, or walk a dog from a local shelter.
The most important aspect of a picnic is the food, so don’t settle for lackluster triangle sandwiches. Here at Nanoosh, we pride ourselves on creating meals that are authentic, delicious, and memorable. If you want your picnic experience to be the same, stop by one of our five NYC locations and grab some food to go!
You can order online from our regular menu or our catering menu—if you’re feeding a large group, we may have just the package you’re looking for. The new Nanoosh Family Meal Package features the perfect quantities of delicious and healthy food for your family picnic.
Happy spring (finally)!
