5 Fun Activities for Adults for an Awesome Day Out

As the pandemic (hopefully) winds down, the prospect of getting together with friends seems more exciting than ever. Aside from the camaraderie and opportunities to catch up, spending time with friends is good for your mental health and can help you avoid depression 

To help you plan a day with friends, here are five activities that will take your day from OK to awesome! 

1. join a dance class

Exercise avoidance is common among adults. You know you need to exercise but when the time comes to do it, you make up an excuse to avoid it. You may say that you’re busy but you just don’t have the energy to get yourself out of your rut. 

But remember — exercise can also be fun. Dancing, for example, is an exhilarating and non-intimidating way to start a healthier habit. Plus, you can even do it with friends!

Note that a 30-minute dance class can burn between 130 and 250 calories (about the same as jogging). You may not feel the burn as much but it’s still an effective form of exercise. 

Here are some of the most popular dances that you can choose from: 

  • Ballroom 
  • Belly dancing 
  • Contemporary 
  • Hip-hop 
  • Electronic

You might also consider that the music and fellowship can put you in a great mood for socializing. 


Do something extraordinary like axe throwing. Because it’s a rather unusual activity, you’ll likely be throwing your first axes with friends. As we all know, shared experiences like these are great for bonding. 

You can throw axes for fun or make it a little more interesting with some competition.  

But don’t worry. If you’ve never given axe throwing a try, FlannelJax’s has coaches who can teach you how to properly and safely throw an axe before you get started.  


Geek out with your friends with nostalgic Lego sets. You can build different sets together or have a little competition to see who can build the best models in the shortest possible time.  

This is a great activity for people who have kids since they don’t have to leave their kids at home or look for a babysitter. Instead, they can take their kids with them and have fun together!


Go-kart racing is for people of all ages — children, teenagers, adults, and in some cases, senior citizens. It’s fun, fast, and competitive. In addition, the activity is a good test of your reflexes! 


Looking for something fun and practical? Consider glassblowing, a process that entails gathering molten glass at the end of a hollow pipe and blowing through the tube to inflate it.  

You can make whatever you want and bring home your creation. It’s a practical skill that you can learn with friends. Plus, you can show off your glass items at the end of the activity.  


Instead of sharing a meal together or meeting for coffee, do something a little more original with friends. Novel experiences are more fun when experienced as a group so whether you prefer grooving to the beat or getting your glassblowing game on, you’re sure to have an awesome and memorable time!
