November 6th is National Play Outside Day! In a technology-centered world, we can easily get wrapped up in binging our favorite Netflix show, playing video games, and scrolling through social media. The goal of this day is to simply enjoy the outdoors with friends, family, or even by yourself! With the crisp autumn air and vibrant colors of fall painting the trees, there’s no better time to enjoy the great outdoors. Check out these outdoor activities around Waldorf to celebrate this special day.
Take a Hike
Take in the beautiful fall foliage on one of the many hiking trails around Waldorf! Head down the road to Cedarville State Forest, and explore their 19.5 miles of trails or go fishing in their four-acre pond. Or, simply pack a picnic to enjoy at their picnic pavilion! You can also enjoy a beautiful waterfront view at Patuxent River Park. Many different parks around Waldorf are perfect for picnicking or enjoying a casual stroll with family and friends.

Play on a Playground
As a child, there’s something exciting about playing on a new playground. In unexplored territory featuring different slides, monkey bars, and more, there’s plenty to experience! Perhaps you can take your children to a different local playground on Play Outside Day. Check out the Charles County Parks playgrounds here.
Start a Pickup Game
You don’t have to be a pro to enjoy a good game! Baseball, basketball, kickball, and more — get a group together and enjoy a pickup game! Head to Oakridge Park and play on their little league and full-sized baseball fields. Or, head to Laurel Springs Regional Park to play a soccer or football game on their field. Text some friends and play a friendly game or two!
Hit the Golf Course
Whether you’re a seasoned player or a beginner, golfing is a fun way to spend time outdoors. Test your skills at one of the local Waldorf golf courses like Henson Creek Golf Course or National Golf Club. Whether you play a round of golf or simply hit balls at the driving range, it will be a fun experience!
