Rainy season is upon us! As raindrops wash away the old and reinvigorate our environment, many prefer to stay indoors to avoid getting wet. Luckily, there are tons of ways to celebrate a rainy day without getting washed away outside. Read on for the best ways to make the most of the wet weather!


Cozy Self-Care Here at Home


There’s nothing quite like cozying up on the couch when it’s cloudy out. Brewing up a nice cup of tea, bundling up in a blanket, and listening to the raindrops is an experience that can’t be matched. If you’re a fan of kicking back on a rainy day, level it up with some self-care! You can draw a hot bath and drop in a couple of bath bombs, made yourself in your Orion apartment. Or, revitalize your body with a hearty stew perfect for warming up your bones. These revitalizing activities will energize your body and soul as the rain does the same for the earth!


Enjoying the Rainy Day from Orion


You can also make the most of your rainy day with the wonderful amenities here at Orion. Get front row seats to the rain (along with gorgeous views of the San Francisco skyline) at our apartment complex’s covered rooftop lounge! Rather warm up a bit? Orion’s fully-stocked coffee bar is waiting for you. Or, have a spa day in the rain and relax in the soothing waters of the spacious outdoor hot tub. Each of these amenities come included with your lease, so take advantage!


Oakland-Based Indoor Fun


While staying at home on a rainy day is ideal for some, others may itch to get out and explore. Thankfully, fun things to do in Oakland on a rainy day are everywhere! For a family-friendly option that’s as educational as it is entertaining, try The Chabot Space and Science Center. Perfect for those interested in astronomy, the center hosts changing interactive labs as well as eye-catching shows in its planetarium. Or for a little fun and games, visit the Pacific Pinball Museum. The museum hosts a playable collection of arcade staples, some dating back to as early as the 1940s!
