Hot Tub Pastimes
All The Things You Can Do In The Hot Tub
Hot tubs are a surprisingly versatile addition to any patio that can catapult your backyard from simply average into the talk of the town. The list below offers a number of imaginative and not-so-normal uses for your hot tub.
1. Relax By Yourself In Peace & Quiet…Sorta Of
Depending on where you choose to take a soak, you can really relax in a hot tub. However, beware of trouble. There can be all kinds of written and unwritten rules and you never know who will be there to monitor your soak and enforce the full letter of the law.
2. Go Snow Diving
Sometimes you can’t appreciate what you have until it’s gone. The next time you’re sitting in your hot tub and find yourself taking the warmth for granted, get out and roll around in the snow – we guarantee you’ll appreciate your hot tub exponentially more upon your return.
3. Wine and Dine
There’s nothing quite like mixing guilty pleasures – George Castanza proved it best when he brought food and TV into his sex-life. Will Ferrell proves it again. Next time you’re soaking a soothing hot tub, maybe try mixing in some fine wines and slow-roasted chicken.
When you find yourself in a disagreement and the only way it can be settled is through a physical altercation or all out throw-down, take it to the tub. As long as it’s in good fun, hot tubs are a good place to roughhouse without the painful rug burns. Just remember, it’s all fun and games until someone pulls out the pile driver.
5. Hot Tub Swan Dive Training
Maybe you lost a bet or you’re simply trying to impress a pretty girl with your swan dive into a hot tub, whatever the case, a hot tub can be a great arena to test out your belly-flop techniques before taking it to the diving board. In this controlled environment you get to limit the variables and get it just right before going big. By the way, don’t actually try this, especially with a motorcycle in the spa.
6. Bathe the Dogs
When it comes to giving your dogs a bath, it can be difficult to obtain full canine cooperation. If you want to avoid the inevitable wet-dog wrestlemania, just let the pooches kick it in the hot tub for a while – they’re sure to come out clean, right?
7. Take a Bubble Bath
There’s nothing quite like a bubble bath but sometimes your standard bathtub just isn’t enough space to stretch your legs and fully enjoy the suds. When that’s the case, turning your outdoor hot tub into a big old bubble bath is…well it’s an option.
8. Pull a Prank
A hot tub is some prime real estate for a variety of practical jokes. It may take some creativity, killer AV skills, and patience, as this kid shows, but with some hard work and an open mind, the pranking possibilities are endless.
9. Stunt Man Training
All successful stunt men know how to fall without severe injury. What better place to practice than near a hot tub, but make sure to actually fall IN the hot tub. This guy gets a solid “C-” for this effort.
