June 21st goes by a few names: the summer solstice, the longest day of the year… and the first day of summer! The last is our favorite by far. The first day of summer evokes memories of friends and fireflies, sunscreen and swimming.
For those of us who reluctantly grew up and stored those experiences as memories rather than plans, today might seem less exciting. There’s no need for that!
Especially if you live in a major city such as New York, Boston, or San Francisco, a quick Google search pulls up a handful of fun, free events organized by other children-at-heart, including music festivals, walking tours, and bonfires at night.
Who says that adults don’t have fun?
Make sure you're living frugally this summer with LearnVest's saving tips for the summer solstice.
