Summers were made for Los Angeles. Although there is plenty of fun to be had on the miles of Southern California coastline, you can also have just as much fun in your own backyard. Some of these ideas make for a great sleepover with your kids and their friends. They also are perfect for the adults in your social circle. Summer is a time to create terrific memories and here are some great ideas for backyard fun:
There are plenty of places around Los Angeles that make for great camping. However, they are always a bit of a drive away. That involves a lot of packing and planning. Why not just camp out in your backyard? You have all the comforts of home while still sleeping under the stars. You can pitch the tent early in the evening and cook you dinner on the grill just like you would at a regular campsite. There will even be time for s’mores! Best of all, everything you need is just a few steps away. And if things get too cold you can always go back inside.
Host an Outdoor Movie Night
Throughout the summer, you’ll find that there are plenty of parks and even cemeteries around Los Angeles that host outdoor movie screenings. These can be fun events to go to but like everything else in Los Angeles you have to fight the traffic and the crowds. Instead, you can host your own outdoor movie night. There are many affordable movie projectors and inflatable screens that you can set up in your yard. You can also rent these for a special party. Break out the sleeping bags, comfy chairs and start popping that popcorn.
Throw a Luau
The golden rule of hosting a party is to have a theme. The perfect backyard party theme is a Hawaiian luau. Make Hawaiian shirts mandatory. You’ll find there are plenty of party stores that are stock full of all kinds of Tiki goodies. You don’t have to be ambitious and dig a fire pit to roast a pig. There are plenty of wonderful Polynesian recipes you can adapt for your party. Better yet, make it potluck and see how creative your friends can be.
Before any having any kind of fun in your backyard, you want to make sure it’s clear of clutter and debris. One call to Junk King Los Angeles can take care of that job.
