Looking for some inspiration to make the most of the season, we turned to a group of athletes, musicians, actors, and chefs who know how to have a good time. Whether it's barbecuing all night with Chris Hatfield, setting sail with Dario Franchetti, jumping off 70-foot cliffs with Chris Sharma, or following six more pieces of advice, we now know exactly how to do summer right.
Purify Yourself with Mark Leibovich
Mark Leibovich, author, This Town
"The best part of summer in Washington D.C. is getting the hell out of Washington D.C. I head to Maine, where my father has an old farmhouse in a small town called Hiram, on the Saco River. I don't feel like I've officially been purified from the muck of D.C. until I dip into those waters. Somehow, no other place feels far enough away."
