Summer is Coming to Baltimore…Take Advantage of These Fun (and Healthy) Things to Do!

Summer is coming, and the WellPower Blog Team would like to suggest some free or low-cost ways to get involved in the community and stay healthy!

Go to Artscape

From July 18-20 go to “America’s Largest Free Arts Festival.” Here you will find magnificent exhibits, designers, artists, film, and a packed tight schedule of live concerts, dance, theatre and so on. You don’t want to miss it!

Volunteer at Velocipede Bike Project

Volunteer on Sundays at Velocipede, a non-profit focused on helping people to “acquire bicycles to benefit their lives.” Meet new friends and learn all about bikes as you polish up your new skills. Then, on your own time you can use Velocipede’s extra bike parts to make a bike of your own!

Go to Single Carrot Theatre

Expand your mind at Single Carrot Theatre. See a show, or sign up to volunteer and have a chance to interact with some of these talented and interesting people. Information on when different volunteer opportunities arise can be found here.

Have a picnic

Pick up some healthy organic snacks-Ok Natural Food Store is a great option (and it’s not just because of their Polydactyl cat). The charming store is packed with a great variety of natural foods, vitamins, and supplements that keep you healthy and happy. Then grab a blanket and head to Patterson Park…the “Best Back Yard of Baltimore,” for a relaxing, outdoor afternoon.

Go to Crystals, Candles & Cauldrons

Visit this eclectic, New Age store filled with essential oils, crystals, candles, and stones. Have your fortune read for fun! I’ll be aiming for health and longevity.

Volunteer at the Whitelock Community Farm

Volunteer at the Whitelock Community Farm. You can volunteer on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9am-1pm. After your hard work you are rewarded with fresh produce. Don’t forget to say hello to a fellow volunteer Michelle Geiss, our friend from the socent hustle event. (She’s the one who told us about this hidden gem)

Sign up for the Baltimore Running Festival

Consider running for a cause when you sign up. All causes can be found here. Race day is October 18th, so take advantage of training in the nice weather!

Visit Fort McHenry

Be sure to check the Schedule of Events before you arrive. If you’re a nature lover, you can jump on the Saturday Monitoring Bird walk.

We would love to know what you enjoy doing during the summer time in Baltimore. Please comment below!
