Morning breakfasts on your patio, evening cocktails by the lake and an entire month of warm, lazy days. June is here, and along with it, summer. We’re sharing a few of our favorite ways to celebrate the month.
- A day trip with friends. Pick a spot on the map that’s within a two hour drive of your home, pile your closest pals in the car and set off for a day trip to a new town you’ve never visited. Make sure to chat with local residents to discover the best cafes, boutiques and natural wonders in the area.
- A picnic in the park. You don’t have to leave your city to find summer inspiration. Fill a picnic basket with seasonal goodies, grab a blanket and enjoy an afternoon at one of your city’s parks.
- A dip in the lake. Even if the water temperature is still frigid in your favorite lake, now’s the time to go, well, jump in a lake. That first dip of the season is the real way we gauge the summer season’s official beginning.
