Places To Picnic That Won’t Bite Back

Camping Tip Of The Day

Camping Extras

Don't forget the little incidentals you'll need when you camp, like shampoo, soap, insect repellent, sunscreen, and other items you might forget but are essential camping equipment. All soaps and shampoos should be biodegradable, especially if you're using them while backpacking. Any paper goods should be biodegradable too, and packed out with you when you leave your campsite. Use any soap sparingly, even biodegradable soaps can be harmful in large quantities. Other great camping equipment choices are baby wipes or other pre-moistened cloths for camp clean up and hygiene. These are easy to carry and you don't need a water source to use them. If you don't have access to showers, concentrate on keeping your hands clean (they can transfer germs when cooking and eating), your feet clean, (to help guard against fungus and other foot troubles), and your teeth brushed, and worry about the rest when you get back home.

Are you interested in having a picnic adventure?  If you are, you are surely not alone.  In the good ole US of A, and all around the globe, for that matter, a huge number of individuals, families, and couples love hosting or attending picnics.  One of the many reasons for that is because picnics don’t just involve eating, they also involve socializing with friends or family, as well as playing outdoor games and sports.

If you are in interested in hosting a picnic, you may be wondering what your options are, in terms of location.  Read on and find out!

Below are a few of the many places that are great for picnics. 

Perhaps, the best place for a picnic is at a park. When it comes to parks, you will find many different options.  No matter where you live, you should have access to a number of nearby parks, parks that many include public parks, campground parks, or state parks.  These areas often include shade from trees, picnic tables, and nearby fun activities, like a pool or body of water for swimming or fishing.

Consider having your next picnic near a body of water, such as a lake. These areas may not necessarily have playgrounds for children or public restrooms, but they may provide you with a little bit seclusion, as well as an absolutely beautiful view.

Speaking of seclusion, if you are looking to have your picnic double as a romantic date, you may be looking for privacy.  One place where you can find privacy is in a wooded area.  As nice as having a picnic on a blanket in the forest may sound, it is important that you use your best judgment when taking this approach. We’re not in Kansas any more, my friend.

As great as it is to go camping in a beautiful location, a secluded location, or one that gives you access to a number of other fun outdoor activities, like swimming or boating, you may be looking to stay at little bit closer to home.  If that is the case, you can have your picnic (and eat it, too) right in your own backyard! This is ideal if you are looking to have a picnic with your family.

Doing a few “practice,” picnics at home may help to prepare your young children for the real thing later on.

Although not as glamorous as the above mentioned picnic locations, you can also have a picnic right inside your home. Yes, you heard me! In your house! This might occur if you had a picnic planned, but the weather took a turn for the worse and you are unable to have your outdoor picnic. 

Laying a blanket down in a family room may provide you with enough space to have the picnic of your dreams, just indoors. This is particularly ideal if your picnic was intended to be a romantic date for you and your partner. I’m blushing. Hubba, hubba! Spare me the gory details!

The above mentioned locations are just a few of the many places that you may be able to hold a picnic. When deciding where you would like your next picnic to occur, it is important that you consider the size of your picnic: how many people do you plan on inviting? Doing so will enable you to choose a location that will allow you and all of your guests to have a righteous time.
