Let’s be totally honest here. After being cooped up for more than a year, most folks have been ready to get back out into the world, rediscover what they love and return to some major fun. You can create a luxurious summer in 2021, and our luxury experts have some wonderful suggestions. Or as the ancient and wise Greek philosopher, Socrates, once said: “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”
Get On Board
For many people, travel is that gateway to freedom, and there are a number of travel options still available where you can outsmart the crowds.
Here’s one tip: Midweek is always better than weekends for travel, so try to be flexible.
Hawaii has been very popular, but you can try heading to Kaua‘i, Lāna‘i, and Molokaʻi if you can’t get to Oahu or Maui.
Florida is another traveling hotspot, especially in Miami, but you can still enjoy gorgeous Florida beaches when you choose St. Petersburg and Clearwater, for example.
If your heart is set on a journey farther away this summer, things are good because more of Europe has put the welcome mat out for US leisure travelers, especially if you’re fully vaccinated. On August 9, Canada also joined the ticket.
Buy Your Own
That’s right. More and more Americans are taking fun and enjoyment into their own hands this summer like never before. Recreational boating is at the top of the list, which isn’t surprising.
The boating industry is booming, and demand is at an all-time high as folks make a plan for a summer on the water. People really enjoy their “blue space” as it’s called. Psychologists say that human beings are drawn to being around water. Water makes us happier.
Being outside and on the water is hard to beat, especially when you can find incredible boats for sale to make this happen. From fishing to watersports, boating is a blast and one of America’s finest pastimes.
Go Vineyard Visiting
Another amazing way to indulge in the luxe things in life this summer is by heading to a vineyard, winery, or tasting room. There is so much to observe and learn and “swirl, see, smell, sip, savor and select.”
Wine experts would suggest that you look out for the visual aspects of the vine such as its leaves, grape bunches, and berries, and this includes studying the color, shape, productivity, and integrity of the plant.
Vineyard visiting is such a classic and elegant way to absorb all you can about a wine’s history, culture, and creation.
Some wineries feature impressive art collections. Others have museums you can visit or grounds you can explore.
The United States is filled to the brim with outstanding vineyards. Some of these include the Vincent Arroyo Winery in Calistoga, California; Von Stiehl Winery in Algoma, Wisconsin; Zephaniah Farm Vineyard in Leesburg, Virginia; Blue Ridge Winery in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania and Clearview Vineyard in Warwick, New York.
Try A Fancy Vacation Rental
Choose a luxurious spot wherever that may be, and do it via a vacation rental where you can totally relax with friends, family, or lovers in digs that have all the comforts of home and then some incredible extras.
It’s time to say yes to your jet-setter lifestyle and enjoy the taste of something truly special.
You can even rent a mansion for a day for that romantic gesture you’ve been dreaming of.
California boasts some lovely, luxury rental mansions, for instance.
Maybe you’re thinking about a stunning, white, Spanish villa with a colorful, hibiscus-filled garden. Look no further than Santa Barbara.
Or maybe sexy Malibu is more your speed where you will find awesome, sleek homes with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook pristine beaches that are perfect for renting and living the good life that you deserve.
The summer of 2021 signifies pushing the reset button on those important luxuries of life. People are out and about and thrilled to be enjoying their freedoms once again and living for today. Everyone has their own definition of luxury, and now’s the time to envision it and go for it!
