Gather your friends, head to the closest lake or picturesque park, and spread out on your fluffiest blanket. Pack a basket of munchies, maybe a small grill, and some speakers for your music.
Picnics – especially in parks or by the lake – are one of the most quintessential Summer stoner activities there are.
3: Ride the Ferris wheel in downtown Seattle
