Looking for something to do but don’t know where to start? This article is for you!

Art exhibits, food festivals, movies in the park… the summer is filled with many wonderful events, but in order to enjoy them, you have to know about them. Keep your calendar full with new and different activities with these useful tips.

First things first, use a quality search engine such as Google, Safari, or Internet Explorer. These are all easy to use, provide relevant results, have easy-to-read interfaces, as well as help users broaden or tighten their searches to find what they are looking for.

Once you’ve decided on your search engine, try different search terms, ending in the name of the town or city where you are. Here are 10 to get you started:

  1. Activities near (insert town/city)
  2. Things to do in (insert town/city)
  3. Events in (insert town/city)
  4. What to do in (insert town/city)
  5. Free things to do in (insert town/city)
  6. Fun things to do in (insert town/city)
  7. Weekend events in (insert town/city)
  8. Points of interest near me
  9. List of attractions near me
  10. What is going on in (insert town/city) this week/weekend

Now that you know what events and activities are going on in your area, who will you visit them with?

Amintro is the social community designed exclusively for those 50 plus looking to make new friends and increase their social circles. We are not a dating site! This is a place to make connections and create good old-fashioned friendships.

The benefits of an active social life have been thoroughly studied and documented. And they reach far beyond having a pleasant time with friends. The gains in our physical and emotional health that come from in-person social interactions are enormous – you can read more about that here.

Once you have a group of friends to enjoy different activities with, you will want a wide variety of activities to enjoy. Keep on top of the goings-on in your area by testing out different search terms and following various organizations on social media so that you will be notified of their upcoming events.

Membership to Amintro is free, and you can learn more about us, our community and how to become an Amintronian by following us on Twitter: @AmintroLiving, or liking us on Facebook: AmintroLiving.
