fun things to do with your best friend

Best friends are best friends for a reason. What makes them different than your other friends is how you go to them first when you need help or just want to talk. They’re the person always there for you no matter what happens. They’re more than just a friend, they’re a part of your family. It’s important to take time and find fun things to do with your best friend too.

Now, if you have a best friend then you know exactly what I mean. With this being said, you guys have probably done almost everything together whether it’s trying new things, going for a walk, or double dates. [Read: How to make your life better through friendship]

The 14 fun things to do with your best friend

My best friend is from elementary school and up until university, we did everything together. People would call us two peas in a pod because we never left each other’s side. But, of course, sometimes we got bored of going to each other’s houses or walking around the neighborhood.

We needed to try out new things together—to create adventures.

So, I get why you’re looking for fun things to do with your best friend. Like any relationship, sometimes you just need to spice it up. Whatever you do, you know you’re going to have a good time.

#1 Go on a vacation. If you want to get away from your everyday routine, then why not take a vacation with your best friend? Depending on when it is, you can go somewhere hot or somewhere cold, it just depends on what you two are vibing for. The point is, you get to relax and have fun with your best friend by your side.

 #2 Have a photo shoot. Okay, maybe your Facebook is like mine and filled with baby and wedding photos. But why do they get to be the only ones who get all the fun and attention? Book a professional photo shoot for the two of you and get all dolled up. That way, you’ll have a lasting memory of you both.

#3 Volunteer together. You may have already had tons of movie nights with your best friend, so why not do something that makes both of you feel good but while helping someone else out. Maybe you both love animals or want to help preserve the planet. It doesn’t matter what you both love doing, just as long as you give back together. You’ll get to support your beliefs while spending time with your best friend as well. [Read: How volunteer work can make your life better]

#4 Go down Disney lane. You tell me one person who doesn’t like Disney movies, one person. Exactly. Everyone loves a classic Disney movie. My favorite is The Little Mermaid, of course. Have one weekend where you watch your favorite Disney classics and eat some of your favorite treats from back in the day.

#5 Go on a double blind date. Blind dates are scary enough, but a double blind date with your best friend sounds like an adventure. Maybe it’ll be a lame date or maybe you both will hit it off with your dates, but by doing it together, it’s not as intimidating. Also, you get to share this experience with your best friend. 

#6 Go see a concert. Do you both have a favorite band? Or do you have a band you want your best friend to hear live? Then why not go to a concert together? There are plenty of concerts, big and small, that you can go see together. It’s a great way to let loose and enjoy the vibes around you both.

#7 Move in together. Now, this is a make or break decision. Moving in together can be a blast, so as long as you two can handle living together. Everyone thinks they know their best friend until they live with them. This could either be an amazing experience or the realization that you can’t live with them but would rather just stay best friends.

#8 Road trip. One weekend, when you’re both free spontaneously go on a road trip together. It’s one one of those fun things to do with your best friend that’ll leave you both with a lasting memory. Who cares where the destination is, that’s not the point. The entire point of a road trip is the adventure you both go on in order to get to your destination. Get your music ready, roll down the windows, load up on junk food and enjoy the ride. [Read: 7 life lessons you can learn on an awesome road trip]

#9 Go on a best friend date. You don’t need other guys or girls to go on a date. Take your best friend and go for dinner, the amusement park or for ice cream. Go on a date with your best friend and spend some genuine quality time together. Maybe you haven’t seen them in a while, so this is your time to reconnect.

#10 Go camping. When you go camping with your best friend you know that you’re going to have a wild time. Making s’mores, setting up the tent, building a fire. These aren’t going to be easy but you’re definitely going to have a good laugh. Try going to a camping spot that either you both love or have never been to.

#11 Face your fears together. We’re all scared of something, but it always seems less scary when you’re doing it with your best friend. Maybe you’re scared of heights. If so, why not face that fear with your best friend? We all have fears, but our fears can be beaten. You just need the right person beside you in order to face them.

#12 Go shopping together. Now, this isn’t something extreme, but honestly, who else is going to give you honest advice if not your best friend. They’re going to tell you if your jeans look too tight or if you need a smaller size. They’re the unbiased ones who make sure you look good.

They can’t be walking around with their best friend all frumpy. They want to shine beside you.

#13 Get matching tattoos. Now, this is a little wild, but it can be a great way to honor a friendship. Why not get matching tattoos? You don’t need to have each other’s faces tattooed on your backs. It can be something small, subtle, and elegant as well. Or you can tattoo each other’s faces to your backs. Whichever one works best for you.

#14 Write each other a letter. But here’s the thing, you both cannot open it until the following year. It’s always interesting to see how a friendship develops and evolves over time. In one year, your relationship will be different in who knows what way, these letters about one another are a great way to show gratitude and love.
