You don’t need to travel far to make meaningful summer memories! Read on as we share a few of our favorite ways to enjoy a staycation from the comfort of home—plus, some delicious pairings for the fun ahead. Take a look.
Go camping in your backyard
The Sunshine State is filled to the brim with natural beauty and charm—much of which can likely be found in your own backyard or patio space. Pitch a tent and spend a night under the stars with your family. Bring along books, a ball for catch, arts and crafts and any other activities you may enjoy—but don’t forget the fuel for your night in nature! Colt’s classic fare like family-favorite Jumbo Chicken Tenders, Smoked Pulled Pork (reminiscent of a warm, flavorful fireside meal) and, of course, Corn on the Cob and other savory sides are sure to please for your camping adventure.
Have a family game night
Clean out the old board games closet and rediscover your favorite go-tos! Or create an entirely new game together. Either way, game night works well for families, couples and roommates alike, and gives you the chance to unwind as you test each other’s skills with a bit of healthy competition. Pair your game night with a crowd-pleaser like our Jumbo Wings for the ultimate event.
Host a home painting party
Another fun way to have fun at home? A family painting party! A few canvases, some acrylic paint and a theme—such as your family pet, or a favorite Florida landscape—are all you need to get the creative juices flowing. Well, maybe some Colt’s takeout too. Opt for handheld favorites so that your family can paint and snack at the same time—or, simply save your delicious smoked platters for later!
Kick back by the beach
Here in Florida, summertime is practically synonymous with the beach. And for good reason! We have plenty of beautiful shoreline to explore, including many quieter spots where you can kick back, relax and play some frisbee with the family or simply enjoy the view. On your way out to the beach, stop by Colt’s to pick up a dish that will be snacked on all afternoon. Jumbo Wings and Tenders are time-honored classics, and don’t require plates or cutlery to dig in, making them the ultimate beach treat!
Redecorate your space
Spring cleaning season may be over, but it’s never too late to reimagine your space! Now is a great time to transform your surroundings at home, with small projects—family crafts, a beautiful vision board or beach-themed shadow box—and large ones, too, like room repainting or a DIY kitchen backsplash. Even if you don’t get away this summer, these projects will help you feel like you’re stepping into a brand-new space all the same.
At Colt’s, family is at the center of everything we do—so we know the importance of quality time with the ones you love! We hope that today’s guide helps you enjoy the season ahead to the fullest.
