21 Ways to Celebrate Your 21st Birthday That Don't Involve the Club

So you're 21. This comes with full-fledged, legal adulthood (i.e., you can buy alcohol, check into hotels, and gamble) and random family members asking you what you're going to do with the rest of your life. Not only is this a very exciting milestone, but you've also reached an age where people start looking to you for adult answers like how to put together furniture and directions. So how are you going to celebrate? If you're not interested in taking so many shots at the club that you can't see straight, check out 21 alternatives.

  1. Take a vacation with your best friends.
  2. Organize a birthday dinner at your favorite restaurant.
  3. Go to a boozy brunch.
  4. Take it back in time and have a slumber party.
  5. Go glamping.
  6. Plan an elaborate scavenger hunt.
  7. See a burlesque or drag show.
  8. Have a cookout/BBQ.
  9. Host a movie night — bonus points if it's outdoors!
  10. Volunteer your time.
  11. Take a road trip.
  12. Go wine tasting.
  13. Take a fitness class.
  14. Go on a helicopter ride.

  21. Spend time with your family!
