5.    Napa Valley Road Trip

The best way to take in California’s wine country is to sample the goods along the way. Drive through the scenic countryside in Napa Valley and Sonoma, and stop to enjoy a glass of cabernet or take a winery tour while you stretch your legs.

6.    Grand Canyon Adventure

For the ultimate US road trip, explore Grand Canyon National Park. Experience the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon with heart-pounding adventures like hiking, white-water-rafting  … or trying to catch your breath on the Skywalk’s 800-foot vertical-drop overlook.

Hello, summer! Today marks the first day of summer and we’re gearing up for a fun-filled few months with our summer to-do list. There’s no excuse for boredom with our list of things to do this summer. So, get up, get out, and go!

1.     Head to the beach.

Nothing says summer more than a lazy day at the beach, soaking up some sunshine. We can dream of lounging on celeb-favorite beaches in places like Rio de Janeiro and St. Barts, but we’ll be just as happy digging our toes in the sand stateside at East Coast beaches like Cape May and the Outer Banks.

2.     Hit the open road.

Road trips are the perfect summer escape and the best way to see this beautiful country of ours. Whether it’s an iconic drive like Route 66 or a road trip through California’s wine country, there’s nothing more American or adventurous than taking a road trip.

3.     Take your workout to the water.

Nobody wants to be in the gym on a beautiful day. There’s no shortage of watersports that burn calories and cool you off — surfing, stand-up paddleboarding and white-water rafting are just some of our favorites. And who wouldn’t want to swim a few laps in these cool pools?

4.     Get some fresh air.

After being cooped up all winter (and possibly spring), this is the time to explore the great outdoors. If you can’t manage one of these bucket list treks around the world, there are national parks in nearly every corner of the US to explore. Take a break from traffic and crowds this summer and get back in tune with nature!

5.     Watch a movie under the stars.

On a nice summer night, there’s nothing better than watching a movie outdoors. From San Francisco’s Film Night in the Park to Washington, DC’s Screen on the Green, there are outdoor movies to take advantage of all over the country this summer. Don’t forget to pack a picnic.

6.     Take your bike for a spin.

It’s time to dust off your bike and leave the car in the garage. For a heart-pounding ride try mountain biking at Whistler or for something more relaxing (and flat) take a bike tour of Charleston’s lowcounty. And if you happen to live in one of these cycling cities, you don’t even need to leave town — your city was made to explore on 2 wheels.

7.     Cool off with a treat.

Did someone say ice cream? Count us in! We’re burning off so many calories outside this summer; we deserve a little indulgence, especially one that’ll cool us off on a hot day. Whether it’s artisan ice cream shops or ice cream trucks, dish us a scoop, please.
