5O WAYS TO CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY

Okay... So our birthday comes around every year, same time and day and it seems every year we (most of us) never know what to do. Some people go to dinner, some people go to the club, or some people sit at home wishing they were doing something. Either way, if you're looking for something different to do then keep reading/scrolling because I've got you covered. I've compiled 50 different activities that you can do with a group of friends and family, just you and your significant other, or all by your lonesome. Please a take a moment to look through the different activities and ideas and Be Inspired! I hope this post will give you some AllurINSPIRATION to enjoy your birthday the best way for you. I challenge you to look through the list and mark off all that you've already done on previous birthday celebrations and only aim to engage in those activities that you haven't experienced for your birthday. Do this every year and enjoy the celebration of YOU!

Enjoy!

Adult Arcade

Gather a group of your friends and go to a local arcade that is 'Adult-Friendly'. This is always a great fun atmosphere that you can enjoy playing some games, eating, and having a few drinks with your guests. This is a great way to bring everyone out. One popular arcade is Dave & Busters (click on the link to find one in your area)

Amusement Park

There is nothing wrong with being a kid again by enjoying the adrenaline rush of the roller coasters and rides along with the overpriced foods and drinks. It's your birthday so have fun and live it up! **Note: I actually did this for my last birthday and I had a blast. We got a speed-pass, so we were able to ride the major roller coasters twice, and that was actually the best amusement park experience ever!**

Bar Hop

Get your crew together and go to your local 'downtown bar area' and BAR HOP! Start with one bar and enjoy the different cultures of each bar, while enjoying a few drinks along the way. **Please Note: It is extremely dangerous and against the law to drink under the influence, so please either have a designated driver 'DD' or use your local Taxicab or Uber service to ensure everyone gets home safely.**

Belly Dancing Lessons

Try working those hips like Shakira and take a Belly Dancing Class with a group of friends. Check online to find a class in your local area.

Brewery Tour

Get a few of your friends together and take a tour of a 'local' brewery. This is a great idea for those that enjoy drinking a nice cold beer every now and again. **Please Note: It is extremely dangerous and against the law to drink under the influence, so please either have a designated driver 'DD' or use your local Taxicab or Uber service to ensure everyone gets home safely. Also check with the brewery, as they may provide some type of transportation.**

Broadway Show

Bull Riding

Enjoy the ride, while having some great laughs as you are thrown off an electronic bull. These are normally in more 'Western' themed restaurants and bars so go all out and dress the part. Throw on some cowboy boots and have a great night!

Bungee Jumping

Face your fear and just JUMP. If you make it then be blessed and continue to live it up every birthday there after, as this is a day to celebrate your life.

Burlesque Show

Enjoy the sensual dancing routines with an amazing atmosphere. This is something you can do with just your significant other, or a group of friends. Either way, enjoy!

Camping

This is an amazing way to spend quality time with your close friends and/or family. Gather some tents and meet around the fire for s'mores and great conversation.

Casino

If you have a little extra money or got some good 'Birthday Cash' head over to the casino and live on the edge. You never know if you're going to come home a winner or not, but most importantly, have fun. **Beware that gambling can become very addictive. Set to a strict budget with an amount that you are comfortable with losing and let that be it.**

Cigar Bar

If you can tolerate it, something I can't, then grab a group of friends and hang out at a cigar bar. This is ideal for those that enjoy smoking cigars and have a big interest in them.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Comedy Show

Bring your birthday in with some laughter. This is perfect for just you and a significant other or a group of friends. **Beware, if you don't want to be the topic of discussion, then you may not want to sit in the front. Also, a lot of smaller comedy show venues have a tendency to seat you with other couples and those not in your party, so don't be alarmed.**

Cooking Class

Look online to find a local cooking class that can accommodate you and your significant other or a nice sized group.

Cosmic Bowling

Bowling is always a good time for dates as well as groups. Find a local bowling alley that will accommodate you and your guests' needs and aim for nothing but strikes on your birthday.

Dinner Cruise

This is a great way to celebrate your birthday with your significant other and/or close friends and family, if you don't have an issue with 'motion sickness'. Most people enjoy the experience and atmosphere, so if you haven't been on one before, your birthday would be a great way to try it out.

Drag Brunch

This is a definite group activity that you and your guests will remember forever. Enjoy a nice brunch will laughing and enjoying the vibrant energy of those dressed in drag as they sing and dance all around you.

Flash Mob

Your birthday is a great day to go viral. Gather up some of your friends, family, neighbors...etc and create a simple or extravagant (your level of discretion) routine and go somewhere public and let the flash mob begin. Make sure some one records it, although I'm sure in this day and age you won't have to worry about that. Post the video on social media sites like Facebook and YouTube and see if your epic birthday flash mob moment can go viral.

Fondue Dinner

Gather a group of friends or your significant other and try out the popular fondue experience. This is intended for a slow-pace meal experience and one that you are likely to enjoy.

Four-Wheeling

For those seeking an intense adrenaline rush, this is a perfect birthday activity that you can do with your friends. Live on the edge and get dirty doing it.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Game Night

If you are looking for something mild and 'low-key' to do for your birthday then a game night would be perfect. Gather all your board games or have each guest bring a different one and enjoy the night with light finger foods and drinks. This is a perfect way to have fun inside without spending too much money.

Gun Range

Take the power into your own hands and go to the gun range. It would be really fun to gather some friends and make it a party. Most gun ranges can accommodate large groups. Look online and contact your local range to inquire about associated prices/fees.

Helicopter Class

Live the 'High Life' and take a helicopter class. This is an an awesome activity to do with just you and your significant other, but can also be done in small groups depending on the company providing lessons. Look online to find local classes for you.

Hiking

If you like to adventure the outdoors, what better way than to go hiking. Pack a backpack and gather some friends and begin your journey. Look online to find great hiking locations in your area.

Hookah Bar

Try going to a hookah bar for the first time. This has become extremely popular in the recent years and something that can be enjoyed by a group of friends/family. Most hookah bars are equipped to serve groups of people. Look online to find Hookah Bars in your area and enjoy the different flavored tobacco.

Karaoke

Grab your friends and make it a 'Singing Party' at your local karaoke bar. Be the next Cher, Beyonce, and/or Tim McGraw and put your singing skills on display.

Enjoy a night of mystery while attending a murder mystery show. This is a great interactive experience that I'm sure you will enjoy. This can be with a group of friends or just you and your significant other.

Nightclub

You can never go wrong with a night club. Put on your best fits and let the vibration of the music take over you will you enjoy the music, drinks, and atmosphere. **Again, Beware: It is extremely dangerous and against the law to drink under the influence, so please either have a designated driver 'DD' or use your local Taxicab or Uber service to ensure everyone gets home safely.**

Paint Ball

This is a fun and interactive activity that is great for a large group of your friends and family. Keep an eye out on Groupon because I always see deals for this.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Paint Nite

This is becoming a popular thing and again, I always see deals for this on Groupon. Check it out, it's lots of fun and you would be surprised how well your picture turns out.

Paparazzi (be a celeb for the night)

This one is actually hilarious to me and I'm really curious to see how many people would really do this. Supposedly, there are companies out there that you can hire to be your paparazzi for the night to make it appear to the public that you are a 'famous celebrity'. This seems like something you would do if you had the money to blow and wanted to have a good laugh with your friends. I honestly don't know if I would ever do it, but I'm extremely excited to hear the experience of someone who has used this service before. Check out this link to see more about it!

Party Bus

This seems to be the 'Go To' for my 'crew' when it's some one's birthday. It's always such a good time and a safe alternative to drinking and driving. To find out more information, go online and look for companies in your area.

Passion Party

This is a fun and nasty way to celebrate your birthday with a group of friends. You can complement the night with nasty treats and cocktails.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Penthouse

This seems like an awesome idea and I actually think I may plan this for my 30th (which is coming sooner than I think or want to admit). I suggest going to a major 'happening' city like New York, Vegas, or Miami and gather a group of friends and live like royalty for the weekend or however long you plan to stay. Look online to find the ideal penthouse to rent in your desired location.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Pole Dance Party

This is a fun activity to do with a group of friends and a really great workout as well. You will surprise yourself on how well you really are working the pole and it may tempt you to want to invest in one for your house.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Road Trip

This is something you can do by yourself, your significant other, or a group of people. I suggest you pack a bag with just you and your spouse and see where you end up. Take videos and pictures on the way and just live carefree for a few days.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Rock Climbing

This activity requires some endurance and strength. This activity is more geared toward the active individuals that seek a great challenge.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Skiing

This is typically a winter activity, but you can look online to find all year ski resorts. I personally prefer snowboarding, but either way this will be a great time for you and a group of friends/family.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Skydiving

If you're bold enough, gather up your friends and recreate this image. Looks like a lot of fun, but not sure if myself and my friends are brave enough to take on the challenge. Good Luck!

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Sleep

For the 'work-aholics' that are sleep deprived... You may want to take the day to do absolutely nothing, but sleep. This may sound boring to some, but for others this may be exactly what you need to feel like yourself.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Spa

Take the day to pamper yourself. This can include getting your hair done, massage, manicure, pedicure, facial, makeup....etc. Do whatever will make you feel nice and refreshed and what is within your budget limitations.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Streaking

Be a daredevil and go streaking. You have to be careful because in most states, this is absolutely illegal and you could get indecent exposure penalties, if caught by authorities. This is super risky, but so full of fun and will guarantee an amazing adrenaline rush if you are able to do it without getting caught. I leave this decision up to you, but this will definitely make your birthday celebration an epic one.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Strip Club

If you're into a little adult entertainment then try out a local strip club with a group of friends and have a great time.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Swingers Club

This one is pretty frisky and should only be experienced by those that are mentally prepared for this. I have not been to one, but if you and your significant other are into this type of activity then go for it. Some couples go just to feed their curiosity and that is your business. Just be sure to go into this experience with well understood limits and boundaries. Enjoy and be safe!

Theme Party

Host a party with a theme at your house or a local venue. Some fun themes include: Mardi Gras, Casino Night, Hollywood, Pajama...etc. Have fun and enjoy your celebration.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Top Golf (cosmic golfing)

This is becoming very popular and locations are starting to open up all over. The idea is awesome and the set up is great for groups of people to enjoy. Look at the website to get more information on locations and pricing.

Volunteer

Spend your birthday giving back to the community. Sometimes you feel better about yourself when you do good for others. Look online to find local community events that you can volunteer for and make your birthday about helping others.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Winery Tour

Gather a group of friends and head out to a local winery to take a tour. Check on Groupon to find deals (again I always see these on Groupon) **Please Note: It is extremely dangerous and against the law to drink under the influence, so please either have a designated driver 'DD' or use your local Taxicab or Uber service to ensure everyone gets home safely. Also check with the winery, as they may provide some type of transportation.**

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Yacht Party

This is a fun idea for a summer birthday celebration. Gather a nice amount of friends and family and throw a party on a yacht. Look online to find companies that rent out yachts and let the planning begin.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

Zip Lining

This is an amazing experience and should definitely be experienced at least once in your lifetime. My husband and I did it in Dominican Republic and it was so much fun. My best friend also found a place in Atlanta, Georgia so try to search on Groupon or online to find a local location.

<For Photo Source, Click Here>

I hope you enjoyed these ideas and this gave you some AllurINSPIRATION on how to celebrate your next birthday and those there after. I enjoyed researching these ideas and can't wait to try some of these that I haven't experienced.

Happy Planning Folks!
