Hello Summer! Celebrate the First Day of Summer Outdoors


It’s summertime and the living is easy in Pardee Homes communities. Mark the first day of summer, June 20, by celebrating the natural beauty and interesting places surrounding your community. Here are a few ideas to celebrate outdoors.

Plan a campout.
Say hello to summer with a “Welcome Summer!” backyard campout. Break out the tent, sleeping bags and s’mores on the grill for a night under the stars. Want to venture out a bit? Check out one of the many campgrounds within an easy drive of your Pardee Homes community. Choose from one of eight campgrounds in San Diego County alone. Be sure to book your reservation in advance.

Make an ice cream bar.
Nothing says summer like ice cream. And with lots of nearby farmers markets and pick-your-own farms, why not create your own unique fruity concoctions at home? Head to Los Rio Ranches in Oak Glen where fresh strawberries will be ripe for the picking on June 20. Or hit up one of the many nearby farmers markets to source just-picked peaches, nectarines, cherries, apricots and other in-season stone fruits. Your Pardee Homes outdoor kitchen is the perfect spot to gather around the ice cream maker for a treat sure to please the entire family.

Get your steps in.
Start the first day of summer with a leisurely stroll. The 10 a.m. Saturday morning downtown Redlands walkabout showcases the town’s history. It is approximately 90 minutes and covers six blocks of downtown Redlands.

New to the area? Book a free, private tour offered just for new residents, and come home with a gift from local businesses and the new Redlands City map.

Go day tripping.
Set in just the right locations, Pardee Homes communities make it easy to enjoy epic daytrips and unexpected outdoor adventures close to home. How about a hike on one of the dozens of Santa Clarita-area trails? Or, venture out to one of the countless national and state parks nearby. From Pardee Homes Las Vegas communities, Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park provide easily accessible Instagram-worthy views to remember your first day of summer.
