What are the signs that summer has arrived? Aside from the increased temperature, pool openings and slew of school-free kids roaming around, here are some of the sure-fire activities that show summer is upon us!
1. The Driving Range is Full
Thinking you’re going to hit a bucket of balls at the driving range? So is everyone else! The summer sun and clear skies is bringing out the golfers, as they loosen up their golf swing for the summer. Golf is the ideal summer sport. You can get together with some friends for 18 holes on the course, or go solo at the driving range. OGIO has a great selection of women’s golf bags and golf bags for men. If you need to get some new golf gear, check out OGIO golf bags!
2. Break out the Camping Gear
The summer season is great for camping out. The higher temperatures ensure that you’ll be comfortable in your tent at night. Can’t find a campsite in your area or don’t have time to plan a full camping weekend? Try camping in your backyard. Just because you can’t find a suitable campground doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the great outdoors. Crank up the grill for hot dogs and s’mores, pack up your sleeping bags and set up camp in the backyard. Summer activities like camping are more about experiencing the outdoors and unplugging, whether in a wild forest or a suburban lawn.
3. Cyclists are out and about
Breaking out the two-wheeled or three-wheeled mode of transportation is a definite sign of summer! Cyclists are out in force, whether they’re peddling or revving their motor. Summer is prime riding and biking time, so expect to see bikers on the road. OGIO has a great selection of moto backpacks for bikers who are using their motorcycles as their daily commuter this summer. Don’t forget to watch out for bikers when you’re out driving around, as they can be easily lost in the blind spots of vehicles.
4. It’s Road Trip Season
Time to pack up the car with food, friends and overstuffed OGIO travel bags! Summer is road trip season! Grab a few of your best friends and a great mix CD, and hit the open road. A road trip is a great way to bond with friends over laughs, sights and probably some petty fights – because being trapped in a car for more than 4 hours isn’t always all fun.
5. There’s a Race Every Weekend
Lace up your running shoes! In the summertime, there are a variety of races to join if that’s your thing. Whether you’re participating in a color run or a warrior dash, there are plenty of races, runs and triathlons to choose from! People walking around in running gear, with paper numbers pinned to their shirts and possibly covered in colored powder is a for sure sign that summer is here.
Summer is a great time for fun in the sun. Try any of the activities above for some guaranteed outdoors fun this summer! Don’t forget to check out OGIO’s great selection of athletic bags, apparel and shoes. Whether you’re golfing, camping or participating in a summer color run, OGIO has something for everyone!
