Believe it or not, summer is finally here! How do you normally unwind during the summer? I personally like to just mellow out, do things that make me happy, and if I’m feeling adventurous, I might take a walk on the wild side and step a bit out of my comfort zone. While I don’t particularly enjoy scathing temperatures, I love being outdoors. Always at the top of my list is a fun rooftop outing or a cruise along the Hudson River. New York City boasts spectacular views, especially when you’re high above it on a rooftop. Here are a few others:
Picnics: Lounging on a comfortable plush blanket in the middle of a park is incredibly relaxing. My go to place is usually Hoboken, NJ, where there is a beautiful park right off the PATH train. Often my friends and I go there to relax and catch up on our busy lives.
The Hamptons: Only a few hours away, The Hamptons is a great escape for me. Last summer, I recall making at least 8 trips to the Hamptons to attend various charity events, hit the beach with friends, and take in the nightlife. I would highly recommend it, especially if you’ve never been before.
Book a Flight and Leave: The best summer motto ever! Who doesn’t enjoy a much-needed getaway? Traveling is so soothing for me. I love seeing the world and learning about different cultures. Last summer I spent some time in Puerto Rico and Costa Rica. This summer, I already have a few trips planned. I recently returned from a 10-day getaway in Aruba where I enjoyed a private beach and snorkeling.
Concerts: Music lovers rejoice! There are a bunch of festivals and concerts going on this summer. The Governors Ball and Fire Fly festival have made my short list.
Home Sweet Home: While I do enjoy covering nightlife for xoJohn, I also need my alone time. Staying home for a night of good music, a page turning book, or watching my favorite television show can keep my attention far longer than any club or bar could.
Throw a party and let the good times roll: My inner circle and I make it a habit to get together every so often for a little house party. Recently, I hosted a few friends for a game night. We played charades, munched on a few sandwiches and chips, while sipping cold bottles of Bud Light Lime®. Bud Light Lime® is the perfect beer for summertime refreshment – and it now comes in a cool and unique new bottle. My guests most certainly enjoyed it. Whatever you decide to do this summer, make sure you’re happy and enjoying life!
