27 Rooftop Instagram Captions, Because It's Almost Happy Hour

Summers were made for many rendezvous on the rooftops and sharing those new heights on the 'Gram. On rooftops, you feel so much closer to the warm sunshine, and from that view, your pics are beyond gorgeous. As far as rooftop Instagram captions are concerned, 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. Either way, there's no excuse for not heading up to a rooftop this summer and soaking up as much vitamin D as you can. The rooftops have been pretty lonely since this past winter, so you've got to make up for lost time.

You and your girls love those long heart-to-hearts on the roof that last until way after the sun sets. In fact, most of your warm summer nights have been enjoyed while clinking wine glasses on the beach or on a rooftop. And you have to admit that looking down at your city from a rooftop gives you so much perspective and clarity. Everything below you might seem pretty small from where you are, but with any of these 27 captions, your pics are going to make a big impression.
