We love summer and everything is brings. The sunshine and the smell of burgers grilling is what this season is all about. Aside from barbecues, lounging by the pool, surfing at the beach and enjoying all the fun that summer offers, there’s another activity that’s on our minds as the summer season gets rolling. This summer, we’re all about enjoying some great music under the stars (or the sun). When you’re on the hunt for a great summer activity that allows you to sing and dance to some of the best musical artists in America, there’s no better way to do it than at an outdoor concert venue.
Whether you choose to go to a famous amphitheater or a free concert on the grass, you’ll rarely have an unpleasant experience at an outdoor concert. Some venues allow guests to bring their own wine and snacks to enjoy during the performance. From California to New York, we found some of the best summer concert series and concert venues to attend this season and be sure to check out their summer concert series schedule (some of the shows may even be free for attendees!)
Have we convinced you to check out a concert yet? If you’re trying to catch a show by your favorite band or just enjoy the smooth tunes of a jazz band, you have a variety of different venues and shows to choose from this summer. Take a look at some of our favorites not to miss this summer.
