5 Outdoor Apartment Amenities That Are Perfect for Summer

Now that it’s the middle of summer, it is time to fully enjoy the nice weather outside. Spending time outside is not only a way to refresh and energize yourself, but it’s proven to be beneficial for your health. If you live in a luxury apartment building, there might be amenities at your disposal to help you make the most of the sunshine. Here are 5 outdoor amenities that can entertain and excite on any summer day.

Seating areas

Outdoor seating areas are a great perk of living in an apartment community. Many buildings have outdoor spaces with seating for residents to enjoy. Some apartment units have decks where residents can put chairs and have a place to soak up the sun. If you work from home you could choose to work outside in one of your apartment’s communal spaces. Whether you sit outside on a deck attached to your apartment unit, or in a shared community space, it’s a worthwhile way to spend time outdoors. 444 Social has a rooftop deck that features a casual gathering space for residents, as well as apartment units with decks.

Grilling and eating spaces

Many apartment buildings offer places outdoors for residents to make and eat food. Some have communal grilling areas that are the perfect spot to host a family dinner party. Others have outdoor seating options, so once you’re done grilling your meal, you can eat outside, while you appreciate and take in the view. At 444 Social, there are fire pits for residents to roast s’mores and communal grills to barbecue.  


A pool provides a perfect place to rest and relax on a warm summer day. Take a dip in the water to cool yourself off, or spend the day reading beside it. Bring friends down with you or take the time to meet some of your neighbors. If you’re working from home and your afternoon workload is light, you could consider bringing your laptop down with you to do work poolside. At 444 Social, the pool is resort-style, complete with semi-private cabanas for residents to use.  

Walking paths

Regular exercise is just as beneficial to your health as spending time outside. Walking, biking, and running help you get fit and some fresh air. If you have a furry friend, you can bring them along for the walk, run or ride. At 444 Social there is a half mile pathway that gives residents a convenient and easy way to get some fresh air and stretch their legs.

Outdoor activities

There are plenty of outdoor activities to keep you busy when you live in an apartment community. Outdoor activities can be fun to do with your friends and family, and they can help you get outside more. They can range from games to water activities. 444 Social sits alongside a pond and is home to a private dock. Residents can take a ride using the community’s shared kayaks, a unique and wonderful way to enjoy the warm weather. Aside from water activities, 444 Social also has a shuffleboard court. It’s fun for kids and the whole family, and it’s an easy and stress-free activity that gets everyone outside. 

Take advantage of the amenities 

Summer days are best spent outside––walking, exploring, grilling, and relaxing by the pool. If you live in an apartment community, chances are this can be your reality since many apartment communities offer luxurious outdoor amenities. The community at 444 Social offers all of these outdoor amenities (and more) to fill up your summer days.
