END.

While it has been far from a normal summer — or year — thus far, we haven’t lost it all yet. There’s still time to enjoy the warmer temperatures, and with the world opening up again, heading to an open area for some sunshine and fresh air with friends has never looked so good. Having lost out of several months of park trips, it’s important to make sure that the ones we make in the coming weeks are worthy replacements. That means perfecting every angle of the trip, from the blanket to the entertainment.

From sunscreen by JAXON LANE to a sneaky flask by Snow Peak, and of course speaker options from Bose and Marshall, we’re pretty sure we’ve covered every aspect of a successful trip to the park. Impress your friends with your preparation, and don’t let any more of this summer slip by without making the most of it.
