How to Make Summer Last All Year Long

Florida summers are like nothing else in the world. Those who take long-term or permanent vacations to the beautiful state of Florida often feel as if summer never ends. But if you’re feeling the stress of the end of another summer and getting back to work and school, it might be hard to keep the summer fun feelings going. Don’t let Florida’s fun and natural beauty pass you by! Check out these tips to make sure your eternal summer never gets boring.

Take a hike!

Don’t let your daily routine keep you in your seat all day. Returning to work and school can mean a more sedentary lifestyle, so mix it up by finding new ways to keep active. Gather up the family to take Fido for a nightly walk, or change up your usual route so that everyone has new sights to see. Sanctuary gives your furry friends their own spaces to relax with a dog park and off-leash area.

Break out the grill!

Nothing tastes more like summer than a freshly-grilled meal, but grilling with the family doesn’t have to be limited to burgers, steaks, and hot dogs. Experiment with new dishes and entrees. Challenge your friends and family to try new foods that might not be grilling staples (watermelon, anyone?). Better yet, find new foods to roast over a campfire! Fire-roasted veggies like corn on the cob taste even better when cooked over an open flame.

Hit the water!

Sanctuary is only a short drive or day trip from what visitors love most about Florida—beaches! Aside from these sandy sanctuaries, Florida is overflowing with natural waterways. Fall is a great time to try fishing for the first time (or the millionth!). Sanctuary is home to a heated free-form pool, so no matter the weather you’ll always have a place to make a splash.

Drink Up!

Seasoned RVers and campers know that food and drink just taste different when enjoyed outside! There’s something special about a freshly grilled meal and the rustic flavors of the outdoors you can’t enjoy any other way. Whether you’re enjoying your grilled catch from earlier in the day, or serving up burgers, steak, and hot dogs, a key part of any outdoor meal is the refreshment!

Sanctuary RV Resort is the perfect place to kick back, relax, and stay hydrated this summer! Here are a few drink ideas to wet your whistle. What is your favorite?

Flash Back to Childhood

It doesn’t matter if you’re five or fifty-five, the sugary joy of Kool-Aid or lemonade satisfies in the summer heat. These mainstays of childhood are best served in a clear tumbler with ice. Sense memory of condensation on the glass, and a juice “mustache” completes the experience.

Do you have a blender and an ice maker? Try a DIY snow cone! Scoop the treat out of a bowl with a spoon or dive in to a cone face-first! There’s no better time to embrace your inner child than summer at Sanctuary RV Resort!

Summertime Classics

In the heat of summer, cool is king. Even if your drink is brewed hot like coffee, or in the sun (sun tea), serve it up with lots of ice! If you’re on the go, there’s no better drink than water. Dehydration is no joke, one easy to forget when traveling or having a good time. Keep a bottle of water nearby, and try to down it a few times a day, even if other drinks are on tap.

Imbibe Safely

Do you have a signature cocktail? Maybe you prefer something off the shelf. As perfectly as a cold beer or hard seltzer pairs with a freshly grilled meal, it is important to drink safely during the summer. Stay mindful of how much you’ve had, and balance alcohol intake with food and water.
