5 Adventurous Activities That Make the Most of a Rainy Day

A rainy day shouldn't dampen your plans to get out and explore. That's why we've partnered with the FIAT® 500X to share fun rainy-day ideas.

Instead, take the downpour as an opportunity to go on an adventure with the spacious FIAT® 500X! From rediscovering your love of cooking and old-fashioned board games to actually taking the time to appreciate the scenery as it passes you by, read on for five fun, adventurous activities to try the next time the forecast calls for rain.

If you love a gourmet meal but never quite seem to reach that level when whipping up dinner at home, use your next rainy day to perfect your cooking skills with your best friends! Many restaurants, kitchenware stores, and community centers offer a variety of cooking classes based on skill level and type of cuisine. What could be better than honing your talent — or even learning the basics — as you cozily cook up a storm inside? Hop in the FIAT® 500X with four of your friends to head to a cooking class.

It can be tempting to let the rain put the kibosh on your plans for a Sunday drive, but don't let it! Take a day trip outside of your comfort zone by traveling down a local highway known for its ocean views or a back road that winds through a forest. Regardless of your destination, viewing the local flora and fauna on a drizzly day will perk up your mood. Use the available Navigation System in the FIAT® 500X to chart a beautiful course; with its available all-wheel drive capabilities, you can take on varied terrain even in wet weather.

A sunny day isn't the only time to whip out your camera and stage a photo shoot. During a storm, rolling dark clouds and a haze of mist can serve as a dramatic backdrop for breathtaking images. Find a natural space — such as a park or coastal cliff — to truly take advantage of the visual drama of a rainy day. Pack up the FIAT® 500X with your gear and equipment for a truly sensational shoot.

You can binge-watch the shows in your streaming queue any day of the week. Instead, take the next rainy day as a chance to treat yourself to a live stand-up comedy show with good friends — so good that they won't encourage the comedian to laugh at you. Dreary evenings tend to put everyone in a blue mood, and a touch of comic relief is the perfect fix for a rainy-night funk. Enjoy the opportunity to reconnect with your squad.

If the notion of spending prolonged periods of time outside in the rain makes you shiver, round up a group of friends and find an old-school gaming center that's fun AF instead! Whether you're a fan of classic board games or you're obsessed with virtual reality video games, gaming is making a major comeback this year. Carpool to the nearest arcade or board-game cafe by piling into the FIAT® 500X, which fits up to four friends. When there, be sure to fuel up with a selection of comfort foods, and challenge friends to multiple matches.
