9 Alcohol-Free Activities You Can Enjoy with Friends when in Cebu

I have yet to meet someone who does not enjoy spending time with his close friends and family members. Almost everyone I know has their own 'squad' and 'crew' (I feel like I'm trying too hard to speak Millennial). I know I have my own group of friends I enjoy hanging out with-- people from my workplace, from Church, my own barkada, my husband's friends, and of course, our families.

Whenever we get together, I often look for ways we can interact with one another instead of stay in a cafe and end up getting bored; even if we snapped a photo, uploaded it on social media, and used #BestTimeEVER! Who am I kidding right? I always love a good adventure and want my closest friends to indulge in the same with me.

This is why I have gathered a list of things to do or places to go in Cebu that will keep you and your friends entertained when you get together with them. If you have any other suggestions, feel free to leave a comment below.
