There aren’t too many people who enjoy the cold months during the winter more than the warmer months during the summer. Let’s face it; when the temperature is 80 degrees and the sun stays out until the late evening, it is hard not to smile and appreciate the great weather.  Throw into the mix all of the outdoor activities that you can partake in during the summer months and it’s understandable why the majority of Americans refer to the summer as their favorite season.

From swimming at the pool to barbecuing to making s’mores by the bonfire, the summer months are definitely filled with joy.

Imagine living at a home where you’d be able to accomplish all of these activities in your backyard. Many apartment communities have all of the above listed amenities. By reading our list below, you’ll find out why living at an apartment is so amazing during the summer!

Meeting New People:

When people think of the summer, a pool is one of the first memories that come to mind. It is always nice to be surrounded poolside by your family and core group of friends for some great quality time. Living at an apartment community with a pool provides you the opportunity to invite your friends and family over while also getting to meet your neighbors and new people!

Whether you meet a couple that has the same aged kids as yours or a young professional who wants to try out the new local bar, an apartment community is a great place to gather to meet and mingle with new faces.

Summer Amenities: 

Let’s face it; the average American doesn’t have a pool, workout facility, and clubhouse in their backyard. The great part of living at an apartment community is you have all of these great amenities at your fingertips. The summer is a time where you can stay inside your community all day and enjoy the outside. Swimming, barbecuing, and the beautiful weather are just outside of your living room!

According to The Wall Street Journal, the share of housing construction as rental apartments is at the highest levels in at least four decades. Coincidence? We think resident truly enjoy all of these great amenities, which is why apartments continue to become more popular.

Relaxation and Entertainment:

ABC News reported that Americans take less vacation, work longer days, and retire later. When we work hard and there is time for relaxation and enjoyment, we want to take advantage of it.

At an apartment community, not only can you enjoy the inside of your home, there are plenty of activities to do outside. Many apartment communities arrange activities that will relieve stress, such as yoga or workout classes. There is also the option to just unwind by reading a book by the pool. On your free days, apartments have plenty to offer.

With so many different activities taking place over the summer, great memories are certain to be made. Whether the memory is laughing at the pool with a friend or barbecuing with family, living at an apartment will definitely help etch those memories forever.
