3 Fun Birthday Party Ideas

Go Bowling:

Bowling is always a lot of fun, and it is definitely not just for kids. You get to play games while hanging with your friends. It creates a sense of community and allows for people to have conversations with each other, rather than trying to hear each other in a loud club. A great option is cosmic bowling, which starts around 10 pm. The bowling alley dims the lights, and adds strobe lighting, as well as opening up the bar so you can sip on something while sharpening up your bowling skills, and mingling with friends.

Go Dancing:

For those who love to dance and just have fun, this is a great birthday celebration idea. Put on your dancing shoes, grab your girls, and head out to your favorite ballroom dancing spot! Some places also have dance instructors, who come in to teach a class before they open the dance floor for the evening, so if you don’t know how to dance that well, you can get comfortable before you’re all on your own on the dance floor.

Go Glamping:

For those who haven’t heard of this, glamping is like camping, that is “glammed up”. Straight up, traditional camping in a tent is not for everyone. The bugs, no electricity, and a sleeping bag, does not sound all that appealing to some. So, glamping is a way for you to enjoy the wildlife, while bringing a piece of comfort with you too. Instead of tents, you’ll have a cabin, housed with beds, food, and get this, electricity! Now, glamping with a crew of your friends doesn’t sound so bad.
