11 Things to do in Canyon, Texas.

People will complain that there is just absolutely nothing to do in Canyon.

However… they’re just absolutely wrong.

So, I decided to compile a list of fun and exciting things that college students can do in Canyon. :)

1. Rent a movie. I’m pretty certain that there is a tv in every single room, if not a laptop (which could play a dvd). You can use your legs and just walk a few blocks to Hastings or United, where you can use and abuse the handy-dandy Red Box for only a $1 a night. :)

2. Midnight Mc Donald runs. Who would have ever thought people would be up and about, at Midnight, getting Mc Donald’s? If you’ve ever been at the drive thru line, you’d validate this. There are always more than 7 cars waiting in line for some tasty, hot french fries.

3. Sonic Happy Hour. As you very well know (or should know by now), I am a self-proclaimed sonic addict. If you are not aware of what SHH is, all drinks and slushes are half-priced. Large drinks come out to $0.93… f.y.i. :)

4. Free Movie Night. Varsity Theater (located across and down the street from the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum) has a free movie night every other Sunday night. Just make sure you go on the right night though. :)

5. Golfing. I’m not an avid golfer. Actually, I have never been golfing. However, I think I might have heard about people going golfing… although I do not know where and when to go. Coming to think of it… don’t quote me on this.

6. Mani/Pedi. There are just those special occasions when a girl needs to go get her toes and nails done. For instance… a breakup, sorority event, hot date, a much needed spa day, or they are just having some awful looking toenails.

7. Shopping Spree. While there is not a large mall in Canyon, there are several cute boutiques that you can find the cutest and one-of-a-kind things.

8. Wal-Mart. Believe it or not, in 8th grade, going to Wal-Mart was the thing to do. And personally… now that I’m a Sophomore/Junior in college, I personally still find making trips to Wal-Mart rather exciting. You never know who you will see or what you will find.:)

9. Physical Exercise at the Activity Center. The AC has lots of choices when it comes working out. For instance, rock wall climbing (if you RWC, you’ll most likely see my roommate there. :) ), treadmills, ellipticals, weights, running on the indoor track, playing basketball, playing racquetball, swimming.

10. Reading/ Studying at the Library. For those who do not read nor study, move on to #11. For those who do like to read and study… The Library can be your new favorite place. There, you can take your laptop, plug in your headphones, listen to Pandora radio while you’re studying for a class or working on project.

11. Volunteer. I know that not many college students have the desire to go volunteer. However, you may have an afternoon with a lot of free time with absolutely nothing else to you… so go volunteer and make somebody’s day. :)
