Travelling has always been a large portion of summer. Niagara Falls is a picture perfect spot to visit, which is where this photo was taken.

The summer heat often draws people to the water to indulge in activities such as boating. The sunrise makes these activities much more enticing in this photo.

Casting Away the Cares of the World

Fishing is a typical activity that many people, including Samantha Woolcock, partake in during summer. It can alleviate many of the burdens faced in everyday life.

Leisure and Luxury

Fine dining is often on the menu for people hoping to enjoy the summer.

The Avenue of Ethereal Heavens 

Sometimes you don’t have to go far to enjoy the simple pleasures of summer. A gorgeous sunset just like this one could be right outside your window.

Young at Heart 

While everyone may be growing older, a lot of people feel like a child at heart. Amber Holt, the teenager pictured, still enjoys frequenting a local playground with her family and friends during the summer.
