Nothing is better than a warm night and a cool patio. This week we are celebrating the weather warming with everything Patio: the sacred space where indoor meets outdoor. Thoughts of BBQs, beach days, and hot nights bouncing are buzzing around in our heads. Whether you're curled up with a good book and a spicy kombucha, or cracking open a summer beer with friends. Enjoy our visual tour of the best patios we could find, as well as our Local Patio Companion Guide: A playlist of local musicians, landscapers, and drinks to enjoy on your outdoor haven.
