YOUR PICNIC LOCATION - THREE GREAT SPOTS FOR A PICNIC
1. Go green!
A park or forest is the ideal green spot to host a picnic. This location will give you plenty of space to invite a lot of people and keep you entertained with fun games after enjoying your picnic dishes. Find that perfect spot underneath a tree for a cozy and intimate setting for two, or a bench if you are not big on sitting on the ground. Use the beautiful green surroundings to create the atmosphere you want for your picnic – a big green lawn for a group of friends or a lookout point with an amazing view for a quiet picnic for two.
Make sure to pack a football, Frisbee, bocce set or whatever you know will be a hit among your picnic guests.
A beautiful backdrop of water at the beach or lakeside will be a lovely recreational spot for a nice picnic. Remember to bring sunscreen and an umbrella for a bit of shade when you are enjoying those delicious picnic dishes. For the full experience, lay out your picnic blanket directly on the soft sand or find a spot just off the beach where you still have the beautiful view.
Whether you opt for a beach or lakeside picnic, remember to pack plenty of sunscreen and entertainment - tennis paddles, beach ball, Frisbee, floaties and, of course, swimwear.
3. Urban spaces
If you don’t have a green spot or a beach just around the corner, make use of your vibrant urban surroundings. Pack a small picnic basket and find the perfect setting for a spontaneous picnic the middle of the urban jungle. A rooftop with a view of the city skyline, a museum park, town square, a brewery, a public park, a bench or a quiet green space in an urban garden or even your own balcony – there are plenty of urban spaces that are the perfect setting for a picnic.
Once you have finished your delicious picnic food, press pause and relax with entertaining games such as cards or backgammon, or bring today’s newspaper or a great book for some real leisure time.
