Summer Nights

With the sun out past quittin’ time, summer is the season to take advantage of the long, warm evenings and fit in a little extra play time. Here’s 5 must-do summer activities:

  • Bonfire: It’s a classic that can’t be overdone. Every time I skewer a marshmallow and put it over a fire, I’m eight years old again. Whether it is at the beach, bay, or backyard, nothing is more nostalgic than giggling around a fire with sticky s’more fingers.

  • Outdoor concerts: With the sun staying out longer and plenty of great SoCal venues, grab a ticket to an open air concert.

  • Old school dance party: Dance the night away without the fuss of club attire by hosting an outdoor dance party in your own backyard or deck. Throw on some throwback tunes, spike the punch bowls, and dance until the cops come! (Okay, don’t get that crazy.)

  • Rooftop bar: Get gussied up and head to a swank rooftop bar for some amazing views and a martini. This makes a great summer date or girls’ night out.

  • Skinny dip: I know it is not legal but live a little. You won’t have to worry if you’re bikini ready because you won’t be wearing one anyway!
