Best things to do outdoors in Manchester
The sun is out (when it wants to) and you need plans to fill your days
Have a wander down to the park
Pretty obvious but All Saints Park is right on your doorstep (unless you live in Daisy Bank... sorry!) and is always a hotspot for sunbathing, taking Insta-worthy photos and making new friends!
You can also have a walk down to Whitworth Park, Platt Fields and Birchfields (or hop on the bus if you loathe walking like me)
Leisurely stroll along the river perhaps?
Whenever I'm stuck on what to do I like to walk along the River Mersey and smile at all of the cute dogs finding sticks for their owners (SO CUTE).
You could also just stroll along the canal in the city centre if you don't want to go too far out!
If you are going to walk alongside a canal or river, please be extra careful and watch where you walk.
Take a trip into town and enjoy the sunshine!
This can literally not cost you a penny if you think about it. Walk into town (save the pennies and the environment ofc), take a bottle of water with you (or a drink of your choice from home), take some snacks from your cupboard, maybe fruit for the extra hydration, a blanket and relax in Piccadilly Gardens!
Granted it is not as Insta-worthy as it used to be [see below] but you can always get a good Boomerang of the fountains!
And another thing that's free (because who can say no to free things?)
Reading! It passes the time, increases your knowledge and vocabulary and means that people won't bother you! Winning!
