Spring is finally here! It’s time for travel, warm weather, outdoor adventures and for the end of the school year. To help leap into spring, we’ve listed a few of our favorite activities to do during the season. Remember, no matter the activity, stay hydrated and healthy with your Glasstic!
Did you know that the average American is said to travel about two times within the year and 10 percent of those travel more than five times a year within the states. This number, with the exception of 2020, has been growing each year with more individuals interested in traveling domestically and internationally. The best time to travel? Depends who you ask, but spring is definitely a favorite season.
Whether you are going across the sea or staying within the states, travel is a very popular activity to do during the spring and summer – and traveling doesn’t have to be expensive! You can travel by car for a day trip to the beach or even stay with friends instead of hotels.
No matter where you travel this season, keeping your Glasstic nearby is essential! Staying hydrated is a known way to help prevent jet lag. Drinking water can also help prevent heat-related illness. That way, you can focus on having fun in the sun with family!
The weather is finally nice, which means it’s time to put on your hiking boots and go to your favorite trails! Hiking is an extremely popular activity to do during the season as it is healthy and has amazing views. The best part? There are trails for every level whether you’re a beginner or avid hiker. For beginning hikers, make sure you bring enough water. REI recommends about a half liter of water per hour of moderate activity in moderate temperatures. Also, make sure you know the signs of heat exhaustion!
Each year, about 40.5 million Americans go camping. Forbes reported that one of the major reasons camping continues to increase in popularity is that people see this as a time to relax and clear their minds. It’s also a chance to connect with nature and detach from electronic devices (although more campsites now have cell service). Camping is also relatively inexpensive, if you have the gear.
Shop Local, Eat Local
With all the chaos that happened this year, many local businesses have struggled. According to Business Nextdoor, 80 percent of small business owners say COVID-19 hurt their business.

This will help you find unique gifts and new experiences!
