Sway Away on National Hammock Day
Set up in the shade and relax this summer! We celebrate National Hammock Day every July 22, and it's the perfect excuse to get out and let your worries float away in the breeze.
Whether you're flying solo or traveling as a team, we've got some great reasons for you to love hammocks.
- Number one, hammocks are comfortable. It's one thing to sit in a chair, but free-floating in the air is a completely different experience. Feel the gentle zephyrs as you sway back and forth, suspended in midair. Relax and focus on nature, read a good book, or just do...nothing.
- If you're in a group, hammocking offers more than just fun. It's a way to build relationships, both with old friends and new acquaintances. Gather a group and head to the forest for a rustic retreat. Try some of our campfire recipes, bring a guitar, and make it day of fun and fellowship. If you're craving the waves, head to the coast and set up in the sun, where you can hang out and embrace the beach life.
- Looking for artistic inspiration? A hammock may just be your best friend. Gather your tools, then travel deep into nature and set up in the great outdoors. Use your surroundings as inspiration, looking at the shapes and considering the colors as you breathe in the rejuvenating fresh air.
No matter how you celebrate, one thing is certain: a hammock makes everything better.

With the rise in popularity, there are a lot of hammocks out there and you need one that checks all the boxes. Is it sturdy? Lightweight? Easy to set up? Do I like the color? Do I like the fabric? Is it safe? Is it big enough?
