One on the list of the best of something to do for funContributed by Denise McGill, Top 10 Guru

Everyone likes to have a good time and when it comes to finding something to do for fun, you don’t have to look any further than what these online catalogs have to offer.

From throwing the ultimate bash to watching a Hollywood classic, you will find something to do than ranges from outrageous to a quiet evening at home. These fun things to do might not be a thrill a second like a carnival ride, but they sure won’t disappoint.

Throw a slumber party

Jammies, snacks, movies and you’re there

Remember when you were a kid and went to a slumber party? Odds are you stayed up most of the night watching movies, playing video games and eating jumk food. Well, just because you’re all grown up (yeah, I know…I hate that idea as much as you do!) doesn’t mean you can’t still have a slumber party. Start with some cool PJs from Jumpin Jammerz (yes they have them for grown ups!), stock up on junk food (gotta include popcorn and brownies!), and load up the DVR with funny or scary movies. Tell everyone to bring pillows and sleeping bags, and your slumber party is ready to go.

Find buried treasure

Get rich in the dirt


What could be more fun than digging for buried treasure? How about digging with the electronic equivilant of a treasure map? White Electronics Metal Detectors are the next best thing. They alert you when something is lurking beneath the surface, and give you a glimpse of size and shape, too. All you have to do is dig where it says.

And as if the chance of finding diamond rings and solid gold tieras in your own yard isn’t exciting enough (hey, it could happen!), some of their metal detectors even work in water! That means you can combine treasure hunting with time at the beach. Now do I know how to have fun or what?

Book a cruise

Head somewhere sunny on a budget

Get busy and pick a cruise with lots of on-board and on-shore activities. Or if you are looking to lie around on a sun soaked beach checking out the cute guys or girls, then a trip to the Bahamas may be just what you are looking for when it comes time for something fun to do.

When you’re looking for something fun to do, what could be better than stepping on the gas and heading out for a road trip? Pick a destination you’ve always wanted to visit, or do the dart on a map method of picking a spot. Then fill the cooler, plug your Garmin GPS from SkyMall, and head for the open highway. Just make sure you’re not so focused on the destination that you miss the fun along the way. Sometimes, those random stops and wrong turns end up being the very best memories.
