18th Birthday Party Ideas?

I just turned 17 and I'm moving to Florida this summer. I don't know anyone there and my boyfriend can't make it down for my birthday due to it being in the middle of our last semester as seniors. What can I do for my 18th birthday when I'm not going to know anyone or have the people I love around me to celebrate?

You will be ABSOLUTELY alone?
NO family members at all around?
IF that is the case, I would look up all the things that your new area is known for and try to visit as many as possible, enjoying your new freedom and place to explore!
Treat it as an adventure!
Document what you do, take lots of pictures and either post them on Facebook or print a nice book of your memories of your adventure from one of the photo printing companies like Shutterfly, etc. IT will be a great memory for you and you will be the expert when friends and family come to visit.

If at all possible, sometime that day perhaps you can Skype with your boyfriend, family and/or friends and that would be great too.

The first year my son moved across the country, we placed our computer monitor on the dining room table while we ate our Thanksgiving dinner and he and his fiance ate theirs while we chatted on Skype!! It really helped us feel the connection!


Make the best of every new situation and your life will be full of great memories! Let us know what you do!

Volunteer! Find some worthy local cause at your new location, whether it be an animal shelter, homeless shelter, soup kitchen, or even just go to the local nursing home and visit someone who also has no close family.

The rewards are great - you make someone else feel wonderful and giving of yourself makes you feel fantastic. Plus you wont be "sitting home alone" and you might even meet some really nice people.

Then when your family can get together you can still celebrate with them, cake, ice cream, and all!
