Ideal Tunes: John Mayer - Heavier Things

Favorite Spot: Old Lyme, Connecticut
Favorite Activity: "Going to the beach and eating Italian ice."

Favorite Spot: Littlejohn Island, Maine
Favorite Activity: Cooking out by the campfire while playing croquet. I come back every year because I have been going to Littlejohn Island since I was born and my family and childhood memories bring me back!
Ideal Tunes: My dad's Littlejohn Campfire songs.
Favorite Spot: Freedom, New Hampshire
Favorite Activity: I spent my summers at summer camp on Lake Ossipee. I have tons of memories there. I love the lake, the fresh air smell, and the friends I get to catch up with. Even the camp food!
Ideal Tunes: Tom Petty - Wildflowers
Favorite Spot: Santa Barbara, California
Favorite Activity: Sambos on the water has the best chocolate chip pancakes in the world. Starting the morning right with some breakfast food overload and then a stroll down the beach is my idea of a perfect summer day. After growing up in Texas where 95 feels like a blizzard during July, I crave a humid 75 day.
Ideal Tunes: Sylvan Esso - Coffee
Favorite Spot: The Camp (family camp on a lake in Southern Maine)
Favorite Activity: Relaxation, enjoying the sunshine, catching up with family while floating on the lake. Water skiing, kayaking, and watching the sunset.
Ideal Tunes: Frank Sinatra - Bing Crosby, and anything Rat Pack. (This is my grandfather's favorite type of music to listen to while lakeside).
Stay tuned until next week when we'll be sharing some tech tips!
