How to Pick The Best Fun Things to Do
Yes, we know, all the things on this list are incredibly fun and you can't decide on which to do first. We can help with that.
1. Where Are You?
Choose things to do depending on where you are. If you're stuck at home, do things you can only do at home, and if you're out, consider your location, and do things that fit the scene.
2. Consider What Others Want to Do
Whether you're doing things with friends, family, neighbors, or strangers, keep in mind that they may not find the same things fun that you do. Choose things that are fun for the whole crowd, and that everyone can take part in.
3. How Much are You Willing to Spend?
Do you have a budget? While there are a ton of things you can do for free, most activities will require you to spend some money. Especially if you choose to go outdoors. For example, a night out with the boys might set you back some good amount of money. Make sure to have a budget in mind as you pick activities.
4. Pick Things You Find Fun!
Finally, and simply stated, choose things that are fun to you. It can't be any more plain and clear than that. These are meant to be fun things to do, so do things that you find fun. That way you'll get the most out of them and you won't be disappointed.

It’s all good doing things you have an interest in. But trying out new stuff can help inject some excitement and novelty into your life. In fact, it’s one of the best ways to keep boredom at bay. After all, it can get boring doing the same old things day after day. Get out of your comfort zone and explore some new activities.
6. Get Inspired
At some point, you need to admit that you don’t know everything. You can get valuable ideas from others that will turn a dull day into a fun and memorable one. Ask your friends and family for ideas on where to hang out and things to do. You can also turn to the internet. It’s a treasure trove of fun activities that you can engage in.
