This summer, soak up some culture! This year, why not take advantage of the summer season to learn more about local history, discover another culture’s traditional art forms or enjoy some live music? In short, soak up some culture! Interested? Here are seven fun ways to add some culture to your life this summer: 1. Visit a museum: your local museums and interpretive centers offer exhibits and activities focusing on nature, history, science, technology, and transportation. They’re great choices if you’re passionate about any of these topics or just curious to learn more. 2. Attend a festival: the warm months are festival season. Festivals are often held to showcase different kinds of music, different styles of dance from around the world and even circus acts. 3. See a play: there’s nothing like a summer play. Or, why not bring the kids to see a puppet show? These are great ways to forget your worries. 4. Discover local art: art galleries, art boutiques and artists’ workshops all offer sights that will impress (oil paintings, ceramics, glass, textiles, photographs, etc.) 5. Discover heritage sites: follow a heritage tour or chart your own course to visit the past at nationally recognized sites of historical importance. You can visit old historical buildings or important religious sites, for instance, to learn more about the past in your region. 6. Go to the library: from story time to readings to book clubs, libraries offer a lot of great cultural activities for all ages. 7. Taste local or exotic foods: specialty restaurants, boutiques that focus on locally produced foods, vineyards, food festivals— there are plenty of ways to make delicious discoveries all summer long.
