It’s hard to believe that July is wrapping up and August will soon be beginning. This summer has looked different than usual, but it has been so nice to get out and enjoy the nice weather through various activities while remaining safe. Her at Steven Walters Builders, we long for you to have a wonderful summer of memories and joy while staying safe and healthy. In this blog post, we will share three of our favorite things to do in West Michigan in August for free.

Star Gazing

One thing we would like to include in a few of our favorite summer activities is star gazing. Go ahead and find an open area with minimal street lights and grab a blanket and enjoy looking for constellations, and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to see a comet or shooting star! Not only is this relaxing, but it is also a wonderful educational experience that the whole family can participate in! Be sure to remember the bug spray, and consider bringing a few mason jars if fireflies are happen to be nearby. You’ll love gallivanting around the field enjoying the stars and trying to catch the creatures that light up the field.

Sunset Enjoyment

This may sound cliché, and it is. Michigan sunsets are hard to beat and are such an incredible way to marvel at the beauty that surrounds our breathtaking area. A few of our favorite locations are Holland State Park, Oval Beach, or Tunnel Park. Grab a blanket or hammock and find your favorite spot with a few of your loved ones. Bring a card game, or activity and enjoy it in the sand as the sun begins to set and display extraordinary colors. Lastly, don’t forget the camera to capture the memories that come from these simple, yet incredible moments.

Take a Hike

Finally, West Michigan has some incredible locations to hike and enjoy the outdoors for all fitness levels. From paved trails, to hiking in the woods and sand, you are sure to find a trail that is perfect for you! This is a great opportunity to enjoy with a group a friends, a significant other, or the entire family! A few of our favorite hiking trails are Riley Trails in Holland, Felt Mansion Hiking Trails, and the Mt. Pisgah. Regardless of the destination you choose, we are sure you will love this incredible activity to bond with those you love.
