Individual Activities To Enjoy At Our Community

If you are interested in spending some time with yourself, here are a couple of ideas to try out:

  • Grab a good book and find a shady spot to read! – One of the best parts about being located in Dunwoody, GA, is the pleasant warmth that we get throughout the summer and early fall. One of our favorite ways to spend a warm afternoon is in a shaded area with a good book and even better snacks! There is nothing more enticing than diving into another world within the pages of a book–we recommend trying a new genre or series this summer!
  • Enjoy Nature Watching On Our Beautiful Campus! – Another benefit of our fantastic location is the wildlife that we get to enjoy. If the heat feels like too much to bear, birdwatching is a great indoor activity to enjoy all that nature has to offer. Consider grabbing a journal and writing about what you see. Keep track of any wildlife you see as well as their behaviors, and then compare each day at the end of the week–maybe you will discover that the same bird appears every day. If looking to enjoy the fresh air, try this activity outdoors!

Walk With Friends

Our final end-of-summer activity recommendation is to take a stroll around our lovely campus with your friends! This is not only a great way to take in our wonderful community, but is also an enjoyable way to be active and see your fellow residents! We suggest that if you do want to walk regularly during the summer, do it early in the morning before the sun has had the chance to make it too hot outside!

Tip: If spending any extended period of time outside be sure to wear sunscreen, SPF protective clothing like long sleeves, hats, and sunglasses, and to drink ample water to stay hydrated in the warm weather!

Here and Dunwoody Pines we love helping our residents make the most out of every season. With warm weather, lots of sunshine, and an amazing community, Dunwoody Pines is the perfect place to settle into this summer!
