Plan Some Fun!

Scheduling joy into your day pays off.

Fun can be good for you—if you know how to have it. Luckily, there is a fabulous wealth of opportunities surrounding us here in Westport. Go let loose! Here are some ideas:

Try something new

What’s your speed? A beachside sunset? Art class? Golf at Longshore? Star viewing at the Rolnick Observatory? Pickleball? A concert at the Levitt Pavilion? Kayaking down the Saugatuck River? A show at the Westport Country Playhouse? Plopping down in the sand at Burying Hill Beach with a cup of coffee in between meetings? There’s something out in our little slice of the world that’s not one of your same-old standbys, and that sense of novelty alone is fun!

Channel your inner kid

Take a cue from the little ones— maybe sign up for something like ballroom, Latin, jazz, or contemporary dancing at one of the amazing dance studios in town. (They have adult classes!) You can also take an art class at Westport Continuing Education or join a sports league like the adult soccer team through the Westport Soccer Association. 

Take your time

Try leaving a few extra minutes between errands. Even little things— like grabbing avocado grilled cheese from The Granola Bar or picking up fresh flowers at Compo Market— can be more enjoyable if you’re not rushing. 

Let yourself laugh

Hear me out: could Winslow Dog Park be the place for this? I’ve been peed on and knocked over while there, so you never know what’ll happen when you take your pup to this dog heaven. There is almost always something amusing happening. Watching a Yorkie think it's going to take down a Great Dane—one bark at a time—never gets old. 

Embrace the beauty around you

April is the perfect month to see and experience the brightness of our surroundings. Take a drive around town and take in the daffodils. Grab a picnic and head to the Aspetuck Land Trust. And don't forget: bring your people. It’s exponentially more fun when we lean into our lives with each other!
