Rich people have enough time and money on their hands to do whatever they want. The same can’t be said for most of the population, though. The average working class has more practical things to think about than what horse breed best fits their personality or which yacht to add to their collection.
Still, once in a while, it would be nice to enjoy the things the wealthiest class does. Here’s a list of dandy sports and pastimes to make you feel rich.
Forget about baseball or skating. Golf is the way to go. Not everybody can afford a membership in Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, but there are more laid back ones like Cramer Mountain Club. You don’t need to be really good at it. Not all rich people are. Just have fun and think of it as a breather. After all, it is open grounds and fresh air.
Hang Out in a Club
Go to a pool club, a country club, or a nightlife club. Whichever it is, you’re bound to feel posh knowing you’re spending time on spots similar to places rich housewives, mogul husbands, and carefree heirs and heiresses visit.
Well, let’s be realistic. Their clubs are most likely private and exclusive. Still, you’ll find more-than-decent clubs if you know where to look.
Sail on a Boat
Okay, so buying a yacht is far from the mind of the average working class. Racing and cruising are a favorite of the water-loving elite. Joining the California Yacht Club may not happen in the near future, but you can always hop on a more affordable cruise for a vacation. A Disney cruise is a totally different experience from lounging on a billion-dollar boat, but it can be just as fun.
Spend Time with Horses
One more thing the rich people are crazy about is horses. There are tons of activities that involve them, such as polo, horse-racing, and equestrian. You and your friends can probably assemble a team for a polo match or a race if you really want to. On the other hand, embrace the American West and learn to ride like a pro. There are public ranches and trails where you can rent horses.
The richest of the rich may have extravagant and fancy activities, but there are more economical alternatives for the working class too. At the end of the day, you’re both just hanging out with your friends and enjoying your surroundings. It’s like the difference between luxury brands and department store clothes. You might think one is better than the other, but in essence, they’re the same.
