6 Reasons to Be Thrilled About Spring

Spring is here. Winter weather is dissipating, trees are slowly regaining foliage, and colorful flowers are beginning to bloom. It’s a refreshing and wonderful site. However, the weather is only one of the reasons why you should be thrilled about spring. Let’s check out a handful of the top reasons why spring is the greatest time of the year.

1. Eating Outside and People Watching

    While some will adamantly deny it, the truth is that we all enjoy people watching. There’s just something incredibly entertaining about sitting back and observing how complete strangers interact with each other and handle various situations.

    Unfortunately, people watching is often forced to take a backseat when the weather is cold. But, when the weather begins to warm, you can once again sit outside and watch people walk by. Top people watching destinations include street cafes, tourist attractions, park benches, and public transit. As a tip, wear sunglasses so you don’t look super creepy.

    2. Music Festivals

      Springtime means the resurgence of outdoor music festivals and concerts. If you’re willing to travel a bit, you can attend a different festival each weekend from March through the end of the summer. In other words, there’s no excuse for saying, “There’s nothing going on this weekend.”

        As spring comes, so does baseball season. Opening Day typically takes place at the very beginning of April and the weather is generally cool enough to enjoy a few innings of baseball without sweating through your shirt.

        Not crazy about baseball? Well, there are some other ways to get into the game. Try your hand at placing a wager on the game. Or, check out the craft beer lineups that many stadiums now offer. You may even be able to find some “all you can eat seats” at the next game. Never say no to baseball in the spring – there’s always something going on at the ballpark.

          Is there anything more “spring” than the annual Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Georgia? It’s arguably the most beautiful sporting event of the entire year, with an immaculate course, bright azaleas, and some of the world’s greatest athletes. And one of the coolest things about the tournament is that a number of amateurs are invited each year. This adds a bit of a special feel to the event and gives even the most casual fan a reason to tune in.

          5. Fresh Food

            While there’s nothing wrong with a good oven-baked casserole, being restricted to the kitchen is a nightmare for those who enjoy delicious food. When spring rolls in, you can once again fire up your grill and enjoy steaks, hamburgers, and hot dogs. Now’s the perfect time to clean the grill and stock up on propane or charcoal.

              Finally, we can’t forget about swimming. When spring weather arrives, the cover comes off the pool and the kids can dive right in. Whether you have a pool in your backyard, are a member of the neighborhood pool, or know a friend with one, everyone enjoys lazy afternoons by the water. Just make sure you lather on the sunscreen. The first few weeks of warm weather can wreak havoc on your skin if you aren’t prepared.

              Rejoice for Spring

                Spring means good food, weather, and entertainment. What more could you ask for? Nothing against summer or fall – or even winter for that matter – but spring has to be the greatest season of the year. The good news is that springtime is here and we no longer have to suffer through the dreary days of winter. Congratulations, you made it!
