Summer is here, which means that you no longer have to put up with conflicting class schedules and deadlines - AKA you actually have time to hang with your BFF. Or perhaps they go to school out of province and they're finally back for the summer. 

Either way, laughing and hanging with your bestie is one of the best feelings ever. However, if you're anything like me, you get stuck in a pattern of doing the same things like Netflixing and hanging out poolside. Well, amigos, we have a list that will give you plenty of summertime activities to fill those long, hot, summer days.
