It’s late morning and your tummy is getting grumbly. You could enjoy a meal inside or meet up at a cafe, but it’s summertime and that means it’s time to get outside! Bre @hungryhipsters shows us how it’s done with her awesome brunch picnic. Having a picnic is a great way to enjoy summer without breaking the bank, plus who doesn’t like an opportunity to eat their weight in watermelon?

Noon – Chase Some Thrills

You’re never too old for a trip to the amusement park! Jack and Graham @thebrothersbuoy show us that during their day-trip. Ferris wheels, roller coasters, funnel cakes and retro vibes, there’s nothing that we don’t like about a good carnival. This day-time adventure is a must-do at least once over the summer and you can find carnivals, fairs and amusement parks all over the country.

Night – Hit Up a Local Show

Summer nights have such a unique vibe. Keep the adventure going even when the moon comes out just like @franciskenneth by hitting up your fave band, artist or show at the coolest venue in your hometown. Heat, live music, dancing, going-out clothesconcerts and summer nights go hand in hand. Warm-weather months are when most bands’ tour schedules pick up and finding local shows and free music events is as easy as checking out facebook or your fave online concert ticket service.

Repeat – Make Your Own Adventure

Summer is all about freedom. Long nights, sun-drenched days and all the small moments that make the best three months of the year so incredibly epic. At rue21, we like to say that “every summer has a story.” Cheesy? Maybe. But our #1 tip to make this summer amazing is to fill it with small moments like the ones we highlighted here, because it’s really the little things that make a summer memorable.
