5 Fun Ways to Spend $10,000
If you have an extra $10,000 laying around and aren't quite sure what to do with it, check out our list of five fun things to do with the money!
1. Take a Friend to a Baseball Fantasy Camp for Two
In January, before the official opening of baseball season, you can usually find a Baseball Fantasy Camp that allows you to get on the same fields as the pros. If you fantasize about playing ball in a major league facility while being coached by former major leaguers, this is your opportunity. With $10,000 you can afford to bring that family member or the best friend you used to play catch with growing up! Camps usually run about $5,000 and typically include round-trip airfare, lodging, transportation, personalized home and away uniforms, and a team jacket.
2. Fly an American Fighter Jet
Now that you got that extra 10 grand, why not take flying to a whole new level? You can live out your dream of being a fighter pilot by taking a course available in a variety of places. Experience what it's like to break the sound barrier, roll, loop and dive with an actual Air Force pilot.
3. Fly Around the World
Travel and see the world you've yet to see. Experiences shape your life's story. According to psychologists, spending money on an experience like travel is more rewarding than paying for things. Ireland, Australia, Africa—the world is yours for the taking! Ten thousand dollars can pay for a trip that changes your worldview.
4. Kick Your Kid Out of the Basement
If your child isn't a child any longer, yet hasn’t gotten around to moving out of your basement, you have $10,000 to lure him out. Set him up in his own apartment and turn that basement into a state-of-the art entertainment room!
5. A Trip to Las Vegas and One Hamburger
You could take a friend to the Fleur de Lys restaurant in Las Vegas and share a $5,000 burger! Located in the Mandalay Bay® Hotel and Casino, this restaurant's $5,000 burger is made with 100% Kobe beef imported from Japan, topped with a slab of foie gras, black truffle and truffle sauce served on a brioche truffle bun. While you're splurging, wash it all down with a $5,000 bottle of Chateau Petrus 1995.
