National Eat Outside Day

It's Picnic Season, 10 Meal Ideas for Your Picnic Basket ... Picnic in the Park


Today is the last day of August, which makes this the perfect opportunity to take your breakfast, lunch or dinner into the great outdoors and enjoy the warm summer weather. Today there are many

opportunities to eat outdoors, but for much of history it was uncommon.  Though impossible to quantify, it’s possible that dining in open air was more in vogue in the late 18th century than in 1960.


Celebrate Eat Outside Day with your favorite picnic foods, pack a basket of goodies and enjoy a popsicle on your porch or in your favorite park–of which we have plenty with our beautiful Metroparks.

Whatever you decide to do, just be sure to enjoy as much time outside before the cooler fall air sets in.
