We’ve talked a lot about the importance of spending some time outside this summer. We wanted to put our money where our mouth is, so to speak — as a team, we’re sharing what gets us outside and in the sun this summer!
By far, my favorite thing to do in the summer is spend time with my daughters doing fun outdoor activities now that they have more time outside of school. There are so many fun, free events in New York in the summer.
We love going to the beach and traveling. We do a lot of small weekend trips to areas around New York and always one big trip with the whole family. This year, we’re going to France!
As some of you may know, I also love golf, and it’s a great time of year for it! My husband and I have also been getting into outdoor salsa dancing events—in the summer, there are a lot of free events in the parks, like at Washington Square Park, every Wednesday!
In the summer, I love spending time near the water. I always try to explore hiking trails that feature running water like streams and rivers, and hanging out in the pool is a great way to cool off in the heat.
Day to day, I like to take breaks around the neighborhood. I try to take a walk around the neighborhood during my midday work break every day, even if it means running errands! There are so many great parks in my city, and I love to relax and read on a bench while getting some fresh air.
I try to get outside regularly, and for me, I’m always trying to keep it exciting. Going to farmers' markets and flea markets is a great way to get some fresh air and sunshine while also getting something useful done (and getting my steps in doesn’t hurt either).
I love outdoor yoga to unwind and relax. And to be social, I’m all about summer barbeques with family, outdoor concerts and movies with friends, and everything in between!
For me, it’s 1000% about the beach day. There’s nothing better than just lounging on the sand and falling asleep to the ocean.
A great pool party is also a way to get me out of the house. Having a fun gathering with friends and family where we can all socialize while staying cool is a great experience.
Sometimes, it’s nice to just go on a walk. The circle rings on my Iphone that usually don’t get closed in the winter are almost always sealed tight when the amazing summer weather comes around.
Taking advantage of the sunshine and warm weather in the summer is an absolute must for me. I try to do as much work outside as I can, as well as take daily walks around the neighborhood to start my day and get the blood flowing.
On weekends, I love camping and hiking in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania—basically anywhere I can drive to on a Friday! It’s so nice to unplug and unwind while the weather is nice and the days are long.
The beach is my favorite place, and I love snorkeling with the turtles. It's my favorite thing to do with my family. I like whitewater rafting too, and summer is the best time to enjoy the rapids.
Regular, day-to-day fresh air is so important to me. Outdoor yoga is an absolute must, and reading on my patio is my daily routine.
And when I feel the heat is on—I like to run to the hills… for milder weather and amazing hiking trails…
During the summer, I absolutely adore spending time at the beach, soaking up the sun, and playing beach volleyball with friends. Exploring nature trails and going on refreshing hikes is another favorite activity of mine. Additionally, I love having picnics in the park with my daughter. We stay busy with waterparks, roller skating, and biking, too!
As a native New Yorker, I like to think "outside the box" to get my summer outdoor time! Luckily, my options are abundant. I love exploring the city, and in the summer that means street festivals, craft festivals featuring independent artists, and so much more.
I also enjoy discovering the outskirts of New York City to escape the "hubbub of the city" for some peaceful time; Upstate New York is a great change of pace without straying too far from home.
But for my daily routine? I love taking my dog, Zane, for walks around the neighborhood.
