Its time to go outside! Getting out in the fresh air boosts your mood, reduces stress, and is just generally good for you. Think about it this way: the longer you live, the more cigars you can have. Whether it’s hiking through nearby mountains, fishing in that one stream only locals know about, playing a quick 9, or simply enjoying a cigar on your front porch, there are countless ways to get outside and elevate your cigar smoking experience this weekend. To kick things off, here’s three of the many ways you can spend the next few days with your favorite people and favorite blends…
One of the most rewarding ways to get outside is to explore your local parks and nature reserves. Many of these areas offer miles of hiking trails, picnic areas, and scenic overlooks that are perfect for enjoying a cigar or two. If you’re new to hiking, start with an easy trail and work your way up to more challenging terrain. Make sure to pack a cutter, lighter, plenty of water, snacks, and sunscreen, and wear comfortable shoes that provide good traction. If you’re feeling adventurous, consider planning a camping trip with friends or family. There not many experiences quite like spending a few nights under the stars, especially if you’re located near an area where you can actually see them.
If you’re even a little interested in golf, life offers few pleasures greater than piloting a golf cart while enjoying a cigar on a beautiful day. Many golf courses allow smoking on the course, but you’ll want to plan accordingly by bringing a small range of options so that if it gets too windy or rainy you’re not forced to smoke a cigar you’d rather save for better circumstances. Even if you don’t play your best game, the experience of enjoying a good cigar on the course with friends is worth it.
Spring is in the air, and that means it’s time to fire up the grill and enjoy some delicious outdoor cooking. If you’re a cigar lover, why not plan a backyard BBQ with friends and family, complete with premium cigars for everyone to enjoy? You can set up a designated area for smoking, complete with comfortable seating and an ashtray, and encourage your guests to bring along their favorite cigars as well. And when it comes to the food, don’t be afraid to get creative and try out new recipes that can pair well with your best blends.
