The Best Hammocks for Summer
When you’re planning to camp out in the backyard for a leisurely afternoon, all you need is an ice cold drink and an easy-swinging hammock. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites in preparation for summer afternoons spent lounging in the backyard or on the deck. We’ve found packable ones that are great for camping and outdoor adventures, ones with stands that are backyard-ready, and pop-up portable hammocks perfect for the beach or pool. If you don’t already have a hammock, find one and learn the true meaning of relaxation. Then pick out the books you’ll read and the music you’ll listen to while swinging—there’s nothing quite like a swing in a hammock in the summertime.
