31 Things To Do in May

From gardening and farmers markets to road trips and more i’m sharing 31 ways you can get the most out of May.

  1. Happy May Day! This fun springtime tradition is all about making a colorful handmade May Day basket, filled with candy or flowers and then you leave it on your neighbor’s porch. I absolutely love this sweet tradition.
  2. May is National Bike Month. Spend time on the trails, rent a bike from a metropark or head to the city and rent a bike and start exploring.
  3. We could all use a moment of zen, and in hour of Garden Meditation Day, take time to slow down and absorb your surroundings.
  4. May the Fourth Be With You! Happy Star Wars Day. Celebrate by watching your favorite Star Wars movie.
  5. Welcome Cinco de Mayo with a tacos and nachos served up charcuterie style.
  6. Setup your outdoor space. Are you stocked up on wood for bonfires? Are you chairs and table cleaned for outdoor dining?
  7. Happy National Tourism Day! Today is the perfect day to make a list of the places you’d like to visit.
  8. Add a new wreath to your front door. Pinterest is filled with plenty of ideas if you want to DIY your own.
  9. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mama’s out there—I see you dog mama’s. From brunch, to treks in the woods, however you celebrate I hope you have a fabulous day.
  10. Trees and gardens are bursting with blooms. Get outside and take a walk around time and enjoy all the beauty spring has to offer.
  11. Head out for a hike. You know this is my favorite. Not only do I love discovering new (to me) trails, but I also love my tried and true ones.
  12. Buy yourself a bouquet of flowers to brighten your day. Peonies are starting to pop up in stores.
  13. The weather is getting nicer, and we’re all spending time outdoors—are you stocked up on sunscreen and bug spray?
  14. Grilling season is finally here. Whether you’re cooking veggie kabobs and pineapple or more traditional burgers and brats put your grill to work while the weather is nice.
  15. Head to the zoo. If you haven’t heard the Detroit Zoo has a baby polar bear that is the cutest thing ever and definitely worth the trip.
  16. It’s World Baking Day today. Celebrate by whipping up something new. I’ll be making some lemon bars.
  17. Make a pizza on the grill.
  18. Farmers market season is in full swing. From fresh baked breads and desserts to early produce and fresh cut blooms you’re sure to find something.
  19. Visit a local metropark and venture to a state park.
  20. Plan a camping trip. You can tent camp or look on Airbnb or Outdoorsy for campers you can rent.
  21. Hit the open road with the windows down on search of a new town. Road trips are my favorite during the summer and the possibilities are endless.
  22. Rent a scooter and see the city from a different perspective.
  23. Visit a greenhouse and start picking out flowers, herbs and produce you want to plant in your yard this year.
  24. Bocce ball, horseshoes and bags, oh my! Break out the yard games.
