Yet, regardless of what you have planned to do this summer, it’s all about creating memories. Millennials are still living the times of their life. No matter the tragedy or blessings enter in life, the memories will last forever.
So, what are some plans Millennials can do for fun that is safe and enjoyable? Take a road trip, attend a music concert, or, start your career in an internship. These options may seem a bit cliché or boring, but evaluate each course of action:
Road Trip with friends
You and your friends can spend the summer in a new location and learn about new cultures. Every town is different, everyone seasonings their food in a new creative way. Also, high school graduates need to experience some type of fun before entering college this fall. For a person to feel the excitement of packing clothes, getting out your phone and using google maps to direct the path, is a new adventure outside the limitations of one’s town and comfort zone. In order for a road trip to happen, everyone has to save money, keep gas in the car, and try not to get arrested in another part of town or city he or she is unfamiliar with during the trip. Sounds easy enough, right? Plane rides can be expensive, plus you miss out on talking with your friends about future plans.

The anticipation, costume decorating, and waiting in line is a part of the lifestyle fans want to experience when seeing their favorite artist.
