Wasn’t it just yesterday that you broke out the barbecue and your favorite beach chair? But take heart, summer-lovers: the water’s still warm, the grill is still hot, and the season’s not over yet. So slather on the sunblock and grab your flip-flops—here are some ideas to make your summer last forever:
  • Rent a convertible
  • Have a scoop
  • Ride a roller coaster
  • Kick off your shoes
  • Read a book on the beach
  • Eat a burger
  • Hop on a bike
  • Plan a picnic
  • Take a hike
