9 Fun and Unusual Activities to Try in July
Summer is a great time for having fun but we often don`t know what to do and end up wasting time just lying on the sofa and watching TV. Life is so short and there are so many things to do that there should actually be no free minute of yours at all. We are all young and full of energy – why not head to some places you haven`t been yet and try something you haven`t tried yet? Check out some fun and unusual things to try in July.

2. Family cooking contest
This one will be great for your children, especially if they are girls. Invite another family with children to your home and arrange a food competition. Your children will be the contestants and the rules are very simple. Buy different products or just get everything out of your fridge and share it between the kids.

3. Tightrope walking
Tightrope walking is an extreme activity to try in July. There are places where two trees or other high objects are connected with many thick ropes that create a kind of a bridge often over the river. Surf the web and find this kind of activity within easy rich of your city if there is some. Even though it`s safe as you are given all the needed safeguarding, not everyone`s ready to face the risk of tightrope walking.
4. A trip for two
If you`re in a relationship you can take a trip for two and July is just a perfect time for that.

6. Homemade ice cream
July is one of the hottest months of the year thus ice cream becomes an irreplaceable part of our diet.

If you love driving it`s going to be a great experience for you, but even if you don`t, you can just be a passenger, either way you`ll surely like it. However, you should take off road driving courses first, as this activity can be life-threatening.
