Whether you're swimming, kayaking, road tripping, or doing any other summer activity, there's one thing that will make the whole experience even better - music. We've all heard a song that “feels" like summer, and if you're anything like me you'll listen to it in the winter just to feel like you're on the beach with your toes in the sand. But luckily, summer is almost here and we'll no longer have to pretend to be in the sun blasting our favorite songs! Which is why I saved you the time and made the ultimate summer playlist.
