Stay Cool and Beat the Heat on the Longest Day: Summer Solstice Survival Guide With Free Country

We’ve got you covered for a sizzling summer: Keep cool and look good in the scorching summer heat while enjoying unforgettable experiences.

With the summer solstice upon us on June 21st, it's time to celebrate the longest day of the year and officially give a warm welcome to the summer season. It's time to break free from the confines of inside and indulge in the great outdoors. Whether you're planning a beach vacation, a hike in the mountains or simply lounging by the pool, find out how to stay cool and comfortable while beating the heat.

Dress for Success
When the sun's rays are at their strongest, choosing the right clothing is essential. Free Country's collection of lightweight and breathable apparel is designed to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the day. Opt for moisture-wicking T-shirts and airy tank tops to allow for maximum airflow. Pair them with quick-drying shorts or versatile skorts for effortless style and freedom of movement. With Free Country gear, you can stay on-trend while keeping the heat at bay.

Hydration is Key
Hydration is crucial during summer's long and hot days. From insulated water bottles to backpacks with hydration reservoirs, pick up gear to ensure you have easy access to water wherever your summer adventures take you. Staying hydrated not only keeps you cool but also boosts your energy levels, allowing you to fully enjoy the activities and experiences that the summer solstice has to offer. Remember, when it comes to beating the heat, hydration is your best friend.

Embrace Water Adventures
When the heat becomes intense, there’s nothing better than refreshing water activities. Whether you're heading to the beach, a nearby lake or just a neighborhood pool, any aquatic escapade is the optimal setting to to cool off during the summer solstice. Consider out-of-the-box options, too, like standup paddleboard yoga, which combines the tranquility of yoga with the thrill of stand-up paddleboarding for a unique and invigorating experience. Or opt for sunset kayaking and glide your way through calming waterways during the golden hours of the evening. Watch as the sun dips below the horizon, casting a warm glow on the water while you navigate through the serene setting.

Outdoor Cooking and Picnics
Summer is the perfect time to partake in outdoor cooking and enjoy picnics with family and friends. Whether you're grilling burgers at a campsite or setting up a charming picnic in a park, the longer days provide the perfect setting for alfresco meals. Don't forget to pack an insulated cooler bag to keep your refreshments chilled.

Seek Shade and Timing
While the summer solstice brings longer daylight hours, it's important to find shade when the sun's rays are most intense. Plan your outdoor activities earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon to avoid the peak heat. Seek natural shade under trees or bring along a portable canopy or umbrella for added protection. And remember, always don a hat to shield your face from harmful UV rays when shade isn’t immediately available.
