A lot of people have New Year’s resolutions that we want to fulfill. However, like most of us who love the outdoors we always seem to want it all: to spend time with family, live more economically and of course spend less time on social media. This article will give you 10 different ways to get outdoors in the upcoming year ahead. Whether you are an avid outdoors person or are just beginning to show interest, you can easily find yourself enjoying life and the little things with the tips below.
1. Go for a Road Trip
Road trips have always been a classic way to enjoy quality time with your family. However, we also know how cramped a car can be whether you’re with little ones or all adults. RVing can be a satisfying way to hit the road for various reasons, especially for the experience. Whether you want to purchase an RV or just want to try a rental it can be totally your decision! If you want 7 reasons why an RV could be right for you check out the article here.
Another way to go for a road trip that isn’t always considered is by renting a motorcycle. You could do this when the leaves are changing color in the fall or as a special Father’s Day gift earlier in the year. This is a way for those who love bikes to hit the open road and feel the fresh air by getting out and enjoying nature the easy way. The best part about getting on a bike for a road trip is that there are plenty of rental companies like Twisted Road that work with you just like any other car rental place.
2. Dash Through the Snow!
Sometimes during the cold all some of us want to do is get outdoors and off the couch. Cabin fever can be a serious thing…especially if you live in the north. Whether you want to take a weekend trip or just a day trip snowshoeing, snowmobiling, skiing, snowboarding, and sledding are all ways to still be active during those chilly winter months. However, if the cold and the snow is just not your thing, don’t worry! We do have some other options further down in this article.

3. Affordable Options, Anytime Anywhere
Are you one of those people that wants to be able to go and see all the awesome landmarks America has to offer, but don’t feel like spending thousands of dollars on a hotel room? Some of the best ways to see national parks and other ideal landmarks throughout the US can be done by camping or glamping (if you want to be a little fancier). Most sites have a small fee you pay, however many are free campsites. It all depends on where you plan to travel. By choosing to camp, it also allows you to get up close and personal with wherever your destination is and still be able to come back to the comforts of your own space without leaving the great outdoors.
Another affordable way to get outdoors is to go hiking. This is probably the best and most affordable option that anyone can do. Hiking can be done simply by using apps like AllTrails and Gaia GPS to help navigate and choose what type of hikes you want to do at your destinations. Both apps are free and useful tools that can be used by beginners, intermediate or enthusiastic hikers alike.
Another free option is stargazing. We have all seen the results of professional photographers climbing mountains to look at the stars in the sky, but the simple truth is that this can be done in almost any rural destination you are in. The great thing is that this can be done any time of year and can be a nice relaxing pasttime to end a great evening.
