5 ways to plan a fun-filled summer trip

Enjoying summer.

Get the right swimwear

From a bikini to a full-body swimsuit to swimming trunks and more, if you want to truly be prepared for a great summer, you need to make sure that you have great swimwear to get wet and enjoy all the water-related activities possible.

From trendy styles to hilarious looks that make people laugh, there are so many different kinds of swimwear styles to try out. Just make sure you invest in a few pairs so that you can always have a spare for any watery occasion. Any fun-filled summer definitely includes some water, so make sure you’re ready for it.

Go to a festival

Summer is a time of fun and festivals, live music and more. Attend festivals in your city or book tickets to some of the famous U.S. festivals that take place in the summer.

It’s a time when students are on break and when a lot of people take PTO, so if you have a little bit of time to spare, don’t hesitate to enjoy summer festivals. Don’t forget to stay hydrated while attending festivals during the summer!

Road trip during your time off

If you’re someone who gets time off in the summer, why not go and vacation somewhere new? Book a rental car and get out on the open road, alone or with close friends. There’s just something great about seeing new places and time spent driving on highways with your favorite music blasting away.

Make sure that you plan your lodging well and fill up on gas before your tank hits near empty. Download apps that show the cheapest gas stations and map out your road trip route in advance. Bring plenty of snacks and water, as well, since it’s one of the best ways to plan a fun-filled summer trip. Stay safe and enjoy!

Go to the beach


If you love the beach, there’s no time as perfect as the present (summertime) to enjoy the combination of sand in your toes and the sound of the waves crashing against the shore.

When the weather is warm, there’s nothing like getting in the water to cool off while getting all the great effects of vitamin D. Just make sure you protect your skin with the best sunscreen possible—make sure it’s environmentally-friendly. Book a flight to Bali or Tulum or simply drive down to the coast for some fun in the sun. Summers are better when there’s a beach trip involved.

Enjoy the outdoors

Even if you can’t get away during the summer to far away beaches or destinations, you can enjoy the outdoors in your city. From lakes to rivers to ponds and open fields, get outside when the weather is warm, but don’t forget to stay hydrated with your Yeti tumbler.

Take your hydration a step further and make sure you have electrolytes so that you can play outside the whole summer long before the weather gets too cold and the days get shorter — one of our 5 ways to plan for a fun-filled summer trip. Don’t forget your hat and sunscreen as well.

Make summer a time full of fun and friends. Whether you stay put in the city or you visit a new destination, summer is a great season for simply enjoying the company of friends and family. Festivals, road trips, beach visits, and so much more—we love summers full of fun.
