Take Advantage of the Warmer Weather

A mountain scene for hiking
May is the time of the year where the warmer weather truly sets in, allowing you to be able to do many things that the colder weather would not. There are plenty of fun things to do outside of your apartment, which is why in this week’s Nantucket Gate Blog, we have a short list of activities you can take part in while the weather is nice! It’s time to get out of the apartment and enjoy the beautiful weather of Tacoma, WA. 

Go on a Hike

When the weather turns warmer, it’s normal to take advantage of it by doing outdoor activities. One of our favorite activities is to enjoy nature by going on a hike! Hiking is a great cardiovascular activity that exposes you to the beauty of nature. Depending on your experience and fitness level, there are various options you can choose from, so pick one that can handle and get out there! Remember to pack snacks, plenty of water, and a first aid kit just in case.


One of the best parts about living in Washington is the ability to experience the coast. Enjoy the warmer weather by taking a kayak out on the water! Kayaking is a fun way to be near water without actually being in it, especially since the water is still going to be cold. Whether it’s a lake or in the ocean, you’ll be able to cruise through the water and enjoy the fresh air! Don’t forget your life jacket.

Laze in the Park

Sometimes the best way to enjoy the warmer weather is by doing nothing. Outdoor activities are fun and can get the blood flowing, but kicking back and relaxing in the shade on a sunny day in the park also has its allure. Lay out a blanket under a nice shaded spot, pack yourself a nice meal with a few drinks, and enjoy the warm weather by doing nothing at all!
