What we missed out on last summer during the pandemic

(NC) With restrictions lifting, many people are eager to get back to the activities they once took for granted. It’s been a long time since we could enjoy a cup of coffee in a café or host a family reunion. This summer let’s fill our calendars with all the things we can do once again and enjoy the season to its fullest.

Get togethers
There is a lot of catching up to do with family and friends both near and far. The warm weather and easing of limits make this the perfect time to celebrate with children’s birthday parties and backyard barbeques. Or avoid the cooking and cleaning and enjoy the vibrant buzz of a crowded restaurant.

Activities and entertainment
From little league to the big leagues, baseball is back in full swing along with soccer, summer hockey and camps. For the evenings, there’s nothing like experiencing the fine arts with live concerts and theatre performances.

Travel freely, whether it’s in your own town visiting the local tourist attractions or to far-off places that you’ve always wanted to see. You can make your travel, entertainment and dining more cost-effective with a best-in-class travel reward card, like the BMO Ascend World Elite Mastercard. After two years of staying close to home, it’s time to take in the sites.

With all these activities to catch up on, the next time you chat with someone you haven’t seen in a while you might not even mention COVID at all.
