Spring is a time for renewal and nostalgia. As a kid growing up in Columbia, SC during the 80s and 90s, I have fond memories of spending time outdoors and going on fun-filled adventures. With the warmer weather and longer days, spring is the perfect time to make new memories and relive old ones. Here are some of my favorite memorable spring activities from my childhood.
Flying Kites: Spring was the perfect season for flying kites. I remember going to the park with my family and seeing the sky filled with colorful kites. It was a fun and exciting experience, and I always looked forward to it.
Cookouts/Picnics in the Park: Another favorite activity was having cookouts/picnics in the park. My family would pack a cooler of sandwiches, fruit, and snacks, and we would spend the whole day enjoying the outdoors. Or we would have family and friends join us and cook on the grill and play games in the park.
Carowinds: No spring season was complete without a trip to Carowinds amusement park. It was a thrill-packed adventure with roller coasters, water rides, and shows. I always had a blast spending the day there with my family and friends. Did you know that you could hop state lines between SC and NC in the theme park? So cool right?
Planting a Garden: Spring is the perfect time to start a garden. I remember helping my great-grandfather and grandmother plant flowers and vegetables in their backyards. It was a fun and rewarding experience to watch them grow and bloom throughout the season.
Biking: Calling all Huffy bicycle riders! Spring is the perfect time to explore the outdoors. Biking was one of my favorite activities. I would tour the neighborhood and discover “new places”, and the fresh air and beautiful scenery made it a memorable experience.
Now’s the time to create great Spring memories of your own! Get up and get moving!
