Try New Things this Year

Since it’s the new year, it’s the perfect opportunity to branch out and try new things! Depending on your preferences, you have plenty of activities to choose from. In this week’s Virginia Square Plaza Blog, we’ll share with you some suggestions for new things you should try this new year!


Since the weather is still cold, why not try snowshoeing? Take a trip to the closest mountain resort and strap on snowshoes for some winter hiking experiences you’ll never forget! Snowboarding and skiing are great winter sports, but you’ll be able to enjoy the beauty of the mountains and nature in the winter by snowshoeing. Instead of blazing down the slopes, you’ll be trudging through snow at a leisurely pace. It would be a perfect time to snap pictures and enjoy each moment. Try it today!


When most people think of a warm vacation, they think about sitting on the beach or even swimming in the clearest water they’ve ever seen. If you haven’t been before, we suggest trying snorkeling!  Some of the more popular destinations for snorkeling are Hawaii and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. You’ll be able to witness the swimming fishes, the beauty of the coral reefs, and the amazing clarity of the water.


If you consider yourself an adrenaline junkie, you’ve probably already gone skydiving, but if you haven’t, it would be a thrilling activity to try out in 2019! Experience the rush of free falling from great heights and, if you’re not too busy screaming from fright, you’ll be able to see the vast horizons of wherever you choose to skydive!

Go ahead and be adventurous this year! If you plan on doing something new that isn’t on this short list, let our Arlington, VA apartment community know of it so we can try it too! Thanks for reading!
