Things to Try This Summer

The summer is here and it makes for the perfect time to try something new. If you aren’t the adventurous type, we hope this week’s Virginia Square Towers Blog will help you get excited about getting out of your comfort zone and trying something new. We hope you enjoy this short list of things to try!

Eat Something New

You have probably settled into a nice routine with the restaurants you go to and the cuisines you like to eat, but instead of doing what you would regularly do, we suggest trying something new! Through your routine, you may have seen a restaurant you’ve been wanting to try, so the next time you don’t want to eat at home, try it! If you aren’t in the mood for spending money, you can always scour the internet for some unique recipes to make at home. Invite your friends over and have a feast. Either way, have fun with it!

Disconnect and Read

Too often, we get caught up in the daily use of our technological devices. This may not be the newest thing to try, but we suggest putting down your phone and picking up a book! Use the summer as the best opportunity to dive into some literary works. The genre doesn’t matter, so pick a couple books and then find a nice spot to read!


Instead of spending the night with the TV on, take your significant other or gather some friends to go stargazing! It might prove to be difficult to stargaze while close to the city here in Arlington, VA, so we recommend driving a significant distance away from the city to a more rural area so you’re away from the city lights in order to see the stars more clearly. Don’t forget to bring some blankets to keep warm! 

There are plenty of things to do during the summer, so we hope you try these ideas! If you’ve got other things you like to do during the summer, share them with our apartment community!
