20 Photos That Will Make You Want Summer Right This Minute

Summer will forever be my favorite season of the year.

I can't say many of my winter nights were all that memorable, considering I spent most of them bundled up on the couch watching Netflix.

However, I'll never forget a single moment of the summers I spent chasing fireflies, roasting marshmallows, building sandcastles and soaking up the glorious golden rays of sun in my backyard.

I'm not sure what it is, but there is something quite magical about summertime.

With Memorial Day Weekend right around the corner, everyone's wanderlust is starting to kick in.

So, when it comes to having fun under the summer sun, you should pack a suitcase full of bikinis and go explore the world.

Let's face it, you should never settle for anything less than summer days filled with beaches, ice cream, tanlines and epic adventure.

Since the weather is finally heating up, we set out to find a bunch of awesome photos on Instagram to get you excited for the season and give you a little inspiration on how to take your summer vacation to the next level.

I should warn you, these photos are pretty much guaranteed to give you a serious case of summertime FOMO and might just encourage you to quit your office job for the next few months.

Take a look at the pictures below if you're ready for summer right now.

Summer is the best time of the year...

To take a leap of faith...

And live in the moment...

As you build memories that will last a lifetime...

And make new friends along the way.

There's nothing better than cooling off with an ice cream cone...

Dipping your feet in the pool...

Or hitting the beach on a scorching day.

Summer is the perfect time to get in touch with nature...

Wander through the wilderness...

And sleep under the stars.

Plus, there's no better time to master the art of grilling...

Or cheer on your fave team (while stuffing your face with cheese fries, of course!).

Playing some ball on the beach...

Boating with your bros...

Keeping it low-key with a backyard barbecue...

Or chowing down on a world famous Coney Island hot dog.

Whether you prefer to spend your summer searching for the catch of the day...

Or perfecting your cannon ball...

You should enjoy every sweet second of this awesome season.
