Weekend Suggestions For Friends Who Need To Spend More Time Together


When you become an adult, it becomes harder to spend as much time with your friends. Time is suddenly taken up by work, mundane adult responsibilities, sleeping (we need more of that, as we get older), and, for many people, kids. Still, that doesn’t mean your social life suddenly becomes far less important. And it certainly doesn’t mean that your friends become less important. It just means that you have to try a little harder to spend time with the people who matter to you. You might not be able to spend every single with your buddies, as you probably did at school, but you can certainly make arrangements to see each other regularly. So, here are some weekend suggestions for friends who need to spend more time together.

Go on a road trip.
You might want to go on vacation with your friends if you’re trying to spend more time together. That would be a great way to bond if you feel that you need to reconnect. In particular, a road trip can create the perfect situation for friends to make lasting memories. If you struggle to choose where to go on your outings, then this would be the perfect opportunity to make all of your friends happy. You could visit multiple destinations on your journey so you have a trip which suits everybody’s interests. That’s how to plan a trip which is memorable for the right reasons.

And the journey itself will be enjoyable, too. After, the whole point of a road trip is that you enjoy driving to the destination as much as arriving at the destination itself. Make sure that your car is prepared for the adventure before you set off. Alongside practical preparations, such as filling up the tank, packing a spare tyre, and bringing a first aid kit, you should make some fun preparations for the trip, as well. You might want to put together a great playlist for the drive. Put on some nostalgic songs which will put you and your buddies in the right frame of mind. Bring plenty of snacks for everyone, too; without snacks, it’s not a road trip.

Have a party.
Having a party would be another fun way to catch up with friends. You don’t have to go out on an adventurous outing to make some lasting memories with the important people in your life. Sometimes, a relaxing evening at home can be a great way to catch up. Maybe you could watch some movies, have a few drinks, and maybe even play some classic games, such as Pictionary. Perhaps you could have a dinner party, too, if you want to reconnect with your pals in a sophisticated manner.

You might even want to host your party outside. You could look into printed marquees for the event. That could really spruce up the aesthetic of your garden and give you somewhere to host the gathering if you’re planning to put together some food or even hire a musician to perform. Who’s to say your small house party can’t feel like a proper concert venue? In the evening, you could relax with your friends on the patio and have a BBQ, whilst you unwind. Remember, the nature of the gathering isn’t as important as bringing your group of friends together and enjoying a relaxing weekend.

Do an escape room.
If you want to test friendships, then an escape room could be a great place to start. You might not have done one before, but the concept is quite straightforward. Every brand is slightly different, but the general idea is that you’re locked in a room for an hour or slightly longer and you have to figure out how to escape (don’t worry; there’s always a fire exit or some other way out because it’s illegal to actually lock people in a room, obviously).

Some escape rooms involve riddles which must be solved and mathematical questions which must be answered, in order to ensure escape. Other rooms involve more active hands-on puzzles which must be completed, in order to ensure escape. Of course, it’s more about having fun with your friends than taking it too seriously; the type of escape room doesn’t matter. On your first try, you might have no idea what you’re doing. Still, if you really enjoy it, then you’ll get better after doing more and more rooms. Escape rooms are certainly addictive, so you might find that doing them becomes a regular outing for you and your buddies.
