It’s important to have some regular fun activity in your life, and if you can find something that also brings some benefit to the table, even better. Popular hobbies change all the time, and if you’re looking to get into something new today, there are some common trends that you can follow if you’re out of ideas. It doesn’t matter if your preferences are more focused on the digital or physical side, there’s no shortage of options that you can check out!

Escape Rooms

If you’re active on social media and have a number of outgoing contacts, you’ve probably seen a good deal of pictures from escape rooms in recent months. There’s a good reason for that – business is booming in this area, and if you’re looking for a Pittsburgh escape room or one in any other area, you’ll have plenty of options to pick from. It’s generally preferable to approach this with a team of people you can trust, but there are also options for individuals out there, and all it takes is a little research. Prices can be quite manageable if you find the right spot, too.

Battle Royale Games

And for those who’re more into computer and console games, a huge thing on the horizon is “battle royale” games. Pitting a hundred players against each other in a battle for the last one standing, these games have gained huge popularity in recent months, and it doesn’t look like they’re going away anytime soon. “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” and “Fortnite” are the two leading titles on the market at the moment, so if you regularly find yourself itching for some computer fun in the evenings, this is definitely something that should be on your radar.


Yes, you read that right! If you’re looking for a slightly more unusual hobby, and also one that can be incredibly rewarding in the long run, blacksmithing is making a surprising comeback lately. It’s not actually that complicated to get started with a DIY setup, and your biggest concern over time is going to be your supply of materials. But once you have everything up and running and you know where to go for scrap, you’ll be able to produce some amazing things with relatively little effort. It’s a very versatile hobby with some real-life applications too. It can net you a nice side profit if you have a knack for it. But even if you don’t move in that direction, it can simply be a rewarding thing to fill your time with and get into a relaxed mode.

Don’t limit yourself to the most obvious choices for your hobbies. There are so many options to explore out there, and we live in a time when it’s easier than ever to find new things that might be right up your alley. Some of the more interesting options might cost a bit, admittedly, but at least you’ll feel rewarded making those investments, rather than feeling like you’re blowing your money on nothing.
