Sights on Summer

Sights on Summer

Spring is essentially one four–month–long tease of what we're really all waiting for: summer. The days are longer, hemlines are shorter and on the whole, everything feels better. Today on The Mix, we're counting down the top 10 things that have us looking forward to the official start to summer.

  1. Summer Fridays at the office—enough said.
  2. Bare shoulders, because we obviously plan on indulging in this season's off–the–shoulder trend.
  3. Hawaiian shaved ice meets ice cream at LA's Blockhead's Shavery Creamery.
  4. Weekend getaways to The Surf Lodge in the Hamptons. We suggest making the drive with the top down and music up.
  5. Head to California's El Matador Beach for some sun and old–fashioned R&R.
  6. When nothing but a swim sesh will do, head to the rooftop pool—aka The Beach—at the Dream Downtown. Nothing beats cool water, cute boys and sprawling view of the city below.
  7. July through August is spa month in Miami—which is the perfect excuse to get that facial you’ve been dreaming about. Opt for the honey massage at the Eden Roc Spa—you won’t regret it.
  8. Head to NYC's famed nail salon Paintbox during lunch breaks and pamper yourself with seasonally–mandated pedicures.
  9. Rent a bike and spending the afternoon enjoying the view of Manhattan from Governors Island.
  10. Rooftop drinks with a view: head to Cindy's in Chicago for excellent cocktails and some of the best views of the city.
