Minecraft is a huge, diverse world – you can go anywhere and do anything. However, there are some things that people have deemed so worthy of exploration that they have been memorialized in Minecraft itself. As well as this page being a handy one stop shop for information about these various discoveries, we also strive to be as up to date as possible. So, if you’re the kind of player who likes to set out and experience everything for themselves rather than reading a list, then good luck – we applaud you.

However, if it’s adventure that you seek (who doesn’t like adventure?), then read on below! You’ll find some of our favorite things to do in Minecraft, as well as a few honorable mentions.

Starter Houses in Minecraft

One of the first things you’re likely to want to do in Minecraft is find a place to live. This can be anything from a basic wooden shack to a luxurious estate with all the amenities. The great thing about Minecraft is that there is no one right way to do things – it’s all up to you!

Dig a mine and find precious resources

One of the most basic – but also most essential – things you can do in Minecraft is to start digging. You never know what you might find underground, from rare ores to vast caverns. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you could even try starting a mine!

Make an army of zombies to fight your enemies

If you’re looking for a bit more combat in your Minecraft experience, you could always try creating an army of zombies. Not only are they essential for taking down those pesky players who think they’re tough, but they also make great pets!

Build something incredible

What’s the point of playing Minecraft if you can’t show off your skills? If you’re more of a builder than a fighter, then why not try creating something incredible? You could build anything from the Eiffel Tower to the Statue of Liberty (yes, it has been done – and you can find out how).

Defeat the Enderdragon

We have saved what is probably one of the most sought after goals for last – defeating the Enderdragon. This terrible beast is the final challenge in Minecraft, and defeating it is sure to bring you immense glory (not to mention a hefty sum of XP). Are you brave enough to take it on?

Play with friends by inviting them over or playing online

One of the best things about Minecraft is that it’s a game that can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age or experience. So why not get your friends together and have some fun? You can play cooperatively or competitively, whatever takes your fancy.

Craft cool items like swords, armor, and potions

What good are all these epic things to do in Minecraft without any epic tools? Whether you’re brandishing a diamond sword or sending the Enderdragon running with your potion of strength, there’s nothing quite like having – and using – some cool items.

Explore an abandoned mineshaft in search of treasure

There are many dangers lurking in the world of Minecraft, but there are also untold riches to be found. One of the best places to start looking for treasure is in an abandoned mineshaft. Just be careful not to fall down a shaft yourself!


We hope that this article has given you some idea of the many things that you can do in Minecraft. The best thing about the game is that there’s always something new to explore, so don’t be afraid to try out new things. Who knows – you might just discover the next big thing. Thanks for reading!
