Sure, it’s only February, but with the great weather we’ve been having this winter, we’re already looking forward to Spring! Of course, we’ll have to wait for the “April showers” to bring the “May flowers,” but there are a few things you can do in the meantime to get ready for Spring in Billings. Here are five activities you can do right here in Billings to get ready for the Springtime now!
Get Ready for Gardening
Where to go: Shipton’s, Billings Hardware, Lowe’s, Billings Nursery
Spring is the time to get going on that garden and start growing beautiful flowers and delicious vegetables. Now’s the time to make sure you’ve got all the equipment and seeds you’ll need to get a good start on your garden this year. A trip to the garden center is a great way to start thinking about the warmer weather that’s on the way and the multitude of plants that you’ll be growing soon.
Pick Up Some Flowers for the House
Where to go: Gainan’s
Sure, you’ll have to wait for the weather to warm up before your garden can grow, but that doesn’t mean it still has to look like winter inside your home! It’s time to refresh the foliage inside the house, and Gainan’s will have plenty of plants to choose from to get your home ready for Spring. Even if we get that last blast of cold weather, you’ll have your own little slice of Springtime in your home.
Get a Tan
Where to go: Ultra Tan Resort
We’re all looking forward to that first blast of really warm weather. Get a quick taste of it by hitting the tanning salon! When that weather does roll around, you’ll be looking good and ready to shed those bulky winter clothes for something a little more comfortable.
Take the Family to the Park
Where to go: Any Park in Town
It’s easy to get cooped up in the house when it’s cold outside. Before that last blast of cold weather gets here before spring, get the family outside for some outdoor fun. Throw a Frisbee around, dust off the old baseball gloves, or just go for a run. Whatever you like to do outside, start enjoying those activities with the family now and they’ll definitely be up for more outdoor fun when the weather gets even better!
Hit the Golf Course
Where to go: Par 3 Course
Let’s face it, that golf swing has gotten pretty rusty since last Fall. It’s time to hit the range and get those golf skills back up to par. Hit the Par 3 before running out to the other courses in town, it’ll be good to get back in the swing of things with a practice round before you set out to break your course record.
