‘Tis the season.

Originally Published: 

In the summertime, once the sun sets and a cool breeze rolls in, that's when the real party begins. You may live for long days spent relaxing on the sand, but you can't deny the nighttime is so dreamy. There's just something in the air that makes you want to hit the town with your besties, or cuddle close under the stars with your summer fling. It's no wonder why they sing about those romantic nights in Grease rather than the days, and you'll need some Instagram captions for summer nights to remember it all.

You have plans to make this a summer to remember now that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states it’s safe for people who are fully vaccinated to resume activities they did before the pandemic. Living in the city, that could mean summer nights spent at rooftop bars, toasting with your squad. If you live by the beach, it’s time for bonfires after watching the sun set over the ocean. You might even enjoy a little nighttime drive with your partner. Roll the windows down and listen to your fave songs of the summer before stopping for some drive-thru milkshakes. It’s all about making each day (and night) one you’ll want to remember forever, so snap as many pics as you want.

Post your favorite memories right away with some of the best summer Instagram captions. If you’re looking for specifically summer night captions, this is the list for you. There are plenty of summery quotes for all the dancing on the roof, roasting marshmallows, and cruising around with your fave people you plan to do.
