Popular Hobbies Starting with Letter D

You might be wondering why I’m starting with the letter D. Well, I am always looking for new hobbies to try out since I get bored quickly. Learning a new hobby is a great way to keep from feeling restless and having too much free time on your hands. There are so many different hobbies out there that you can do by yourself or with friends and family! In this blog post, I’m going to talk about some of my favorite hobbies that start with the letter D but feel free to check out other parts of this blog too.


Dancing is a popular hobby that can be done solo or with a partner. It’s not just for children learning how to walk, either. Dancing is an activity enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. Dancing may seem like it would be easy to do, but there are many different styles of dance that you must learn before you can even think about becoming proficient at any one style.


Drawing is a classic hobby that has been around for thousands of years. It can be a very freeing activity to just draw whatever you want and not worry about what other people will think about it. You don’t even have to have any artistic background or knowledge! Drawing can be as simple or as complicated as you decide, the possibilities are endless.


Throwing darts is a great hobby for those who may not always feel social enough at bars because darts can be done without having to interact with other players very much. Dart leagues are popular all over the world. The team aspect of dart games really makes them fun too! You do need several friends who also enjoy playing darts in order to form a team but once you do, you can play together all the time.

Disc Golf

Disc golf is a great sport to get into for those who like spending time outside. This hobby has similarities to traditional golf but instead of clubs, you throw discs (frisbees) at targets (called “holes”). You can also do disc golf on your own or with friends.

Diorama Making

Dioramas are scenes made out of small objects and materials like paper, wood, plastic, etc… They may seem complicated but they aren’t! Dioramas are usually meant to recreate specific moments in history or tell a story. Some people make dioramas only out of clay while other use photographs as reference materials. It’s up to you.


DJing is great because it’s basically like being a real-life DJ on your favorite radio station, only you are the one who chooses what songs will play! You can do this alone or with friends. All you need are some simple equipment and of course, music to play! Although disc golf may require more physical ability, DJing does require more knowledge about music which can be learned relatively quickly.

Dog Training

If there is one thing I love almost as much as dogs, it’s training them! Dog training requires obedience skills but also patience and understanding for both the handler and the dog. This hobby is perfect for those looking to have an animal companion but doesn’t want the responsibility of owning a pet.


Dominoes is like playing with Legos, only these particular Legos are for adults. Dominoes can be played by yourself or in large groups of people, usually when socializing over food and drinks (like darts). This game requires strategy and logical thinking skills in order to win!

Drone Flying

Another hobby that requires equipment but not an enormous time commitment is drone flying! Drones are remote control vehicles with cameras attached to them which make them perfect for taking video footage from high altitudes. Drone flying has become popular recently due to drones being available at affordable prices. Plus you get all the fun of being a pilot without any of the risks! Professional drone pilots often use them to film movies and TV shows, for example.


Drums are similar to dominoes in that they’re fun to play by yourself or with friends. Playing drums requires hand-eye coordination skills and rhythm which can be learned easily if you put your mind to it. Once you learn how to play one set of drums, most likely you can pick up another set of drums and learn how to play them too with little practice!
