Summer in the City

Summer is the best time for a good, old fashioned road trip! No matter what area of the country you’re in, we think that a road trip to your nearest big city sounds like a great plan. We picked the number one summer activity or destination in a selection of cities– as well as what to wear for both guys and girls!

New York
Sure, New York has plenty to do all year round, from Broadway shows to shopping and just about everything in between. But the place you’ll want to go during the summer is Central Park. You could spend your entire trip doing things in the over 50 block-long park, including visiting the zoo, seeing iconic landmarks, or acting like a real New Yorker and relaxing on the Great Lawn! It can get pretty warm in the city during the summer, so we suggest wearing one of District’s® womens or mens tank tops, shorts, and shoes. They’re comfortable to walk around in all day!

On the shore of Lake Michigan lies the hottest summer spot in the Windy City: Navy Pier. Currently undergoing some renovations, Navy Pier is still open for business and features unique shopping, great restaurants, and the famous ferris wheel! Because Navy Pier has a very nautical vibe, try rocking bright reds, clean whites, and (of course!) navy blues, especially in stripes. District’s® Boardshorts for women and men, a tank top or tee, and a pair of boat shoes will look great!

Los Angeles
There are so many thing to do in L.A. with all the unique, must-see areas. But for a real summertime SoCal experience, the Santa Monica Pier is the place to be. Everyone knows the iconic archway sign, as well as the amusement park, but we can’t leave out the historic biking and walking tours, live music, arcade, aquarium, and much, much more! Go for the surfer vibe here with our Cotton Ringer Mens Tank Top, boardshorts, and sandals!

The entire state of Texas can get pretty warm during the summer months. But that doesn’t stop this city from making the most of it! There are a ton of great summertime traditions and events. Many of them surround the Colorado River that runs through the city. Catch some great (and free) live music, tubing down the river, outdoor swimming at pools and springs, street festivals, outdoor movies, and more! Because it gets pretty hot in the Lone Star State, opt for one of District’s® womens or mens tank tops, athletic shorts, and in an attempt to blend in, an awesome pair of cowboy boots!
