Summers were made for rendezvous on rooftops and sharing those new heights on the 'Gram. From up high, you feel so much closer to the warm sunshine, and the view is beyond gorgeous. It’s the definition of Insta-worthy, which is why you need some Instagram captions. As far as rooftop captions are concerned, though, it really depends on what you're celebrating up there.

Are you and your ride-or-dies hitting up a rooftop bar for happy hour? Maybe you're fortunate enough to have access to the roof of your place and plan to barbecue the entire summer away. You could also enjoy a movie under the stars with your own setup or Rooftop Cinema Club for date night with bae. Either way, there's no excuse for not taking advantage of the rooftops this summer and soaking up as much vitamin D as you can.

Let’s not forget those long heart-to-hearts on the roof with your squad that last longer than the sunsets. Those are the kinds of memories you’ll want to cherish forever, and the right rooftop quotes will help you do that. While looking down at your city from a rooftop gives you so much perspective and clarity, you may need some help coming up with your own Instagram captions. After all, the view is bound to leave you speechless, so just use any of these 35 rooftop quotes that are sure to make a big impression.
