6 Building Blocks of a Great Summer Season

friends enjoying the summer season

Is there a better season than summer? Winter has Christmas, but that’s really all it has going for it. Fall also has some quality holidays, but it can’t compete. I won’t talk bad about Spring, but it isn’t quite on par with Summer.

I feel like I do this for whatever season I’m in, I always hype them up to be the best. Summer really is amazing though. Maybe it’s all the great memories of my childhood, but there is just something special about summer.

There is a lot that makes this season great, and we can’t possibly discuss all of it. We can, however, talk about some of the most important things that can happen in summer to make it awesome.


You don’t need an explanation as to why this is a good thing. It gets really hot during the summer! Nothing is more miserable than a hot home during the summer.

There are a lot of ways air conditioning keeps you comfortable, the most important being that it keeps your house cool. When the house is cool, you feel better. It can help prevent dehydration and overheating.

Pool time

Spending time in the pool is a necessary part of summer.  Seriously, I don’t think it would actually count as summer if you didn’t.

Even if you don’t own a pool you can still go to a community pool, water park, or a family member or friend’s pool. It’s a great way to keep cool and have a ton of fun. Kids of all ages love the pool, and adults do too!


Cooking out is a classic summer thing to do. It is something we all look forward to. Cooking out is an American classic, that’s for sure.

Whether you are just cooking up some hamburgers and hotdogs for your family or having the entire block over for a party, everyone loves to go to a good cookout. It means food, family/friends, and a good time.

Sleeping in

One of the best parts about summer is that many people have the chance to sleep in. Students and teachers everywhere take advantage of this, as well as many other people who have more flexible summer schedules.

Take the opportunity to get some extra Z’s, especially if you are staying up later during the summer.


Vacation is a summer staple. People all over go visit family or just take cool trips over the summer. Road trips are really common, and a ton of fun. Well, maybe they aren’t if you have crazy kids.

Whether you drive a couple of hours to see Grandma or fly to Hawaii, taking a summer vacation is all about making memories and relaxing.

Frozen Treats

You can’t just have one. Ice cream, popsicles, slushies, snow cones, are all delicious and must-haves for summer. Visit the ice cream truck, or guy buy a gallon and have an ice cream sundae night.

With all that sugar it would probably be good to look up some healthier options, there are a lot of DIY, sugar-free options out there.


My main point is to have fun this summer. Go do things that will allow you to make memories, relax, and rejuvenate for whatever you have coming up this year. Summer is a great time, don’t waste it!
