Now that summer is here, people are going to be outside from sun up to sundown and enjoying the warmth of the sun on their skin. Children that have been cooped up inside during the cold winter months are chomping at the bit to go play outside. Luckily, the parents having been required to entertain their kids inside during the colder temperatures are just as happy to get outside themselves.
Think about where you live. Would you feel comfortable letting your kids outside to play without hovering over their every move? Would you want to invite friends over for a bonfire to make s’mores while the kids ran around chasing after fireflies? Would you and your kids even be able to do these things where you live? Do you live out in the country or in the city limits? Where you lay your head at night makes a huge difference in the kinds of nights and days you get in the summer.
Summer in the Country
We’re not here to bash those that have made their home in the city. Rather, we understand that there are endless options for date nights and children’s activities that often aren’t available to those that live in the country. If you’re single or a childless couple, the nightclubs and live music venues are perfect for spending a night out on the town with friends. For families, you can easily find a big park or museum to pass the time during the day as well as zoos or planetariums for hours of endless entertainment. City nights are often filled with fun and excitement and the ability to find something to do for every member of your family.
So, what do you do when you want to see the stars, or hear the tree frogs, or feel a fresh, clean breeze?
Country Summer Nights
There’s nothing like laying out a blanket and staring up at the infinite stars in the sky. With all the light pollution, this would be impossible in the city. It would also be impossible in the city at night to build a fire and roast marshmallows with the kids without worrying about getting the fire department called. In the countryside, your kids could run freely on your property without bothering neighbors because the homes are often so far apart. The safety and security of living out in the country away from the hustle and bustle would offer a level of comfort for you and your kids that just wouldn’t be possible in the city.
Rural areas are often better than urban areas simply for the fact that life tends to be more laid back, harkening back to a simpler time in life. Neighbors are often spread apart, but still available in times of need. Kids can ride their bikes to their friend’s house without worrying about a constant stream of traffic. The stars shine in abundance and the fireflies light up the ground giving us all a natural light show that will survive for generations to come.
