Summertime Stunners: Our Favorite Venues for Summer Events
Nothing says, “summer has arrived,” quite like soaking in some sunshine with good company in a bright, airy location.
The Peerspace team has “oohed” and “aahed” our way through thousands of awe-inspiring photos from venues across the country and selected the best as our top picks for hosting summer events. From sun-drenched gardens to a chic French chateau, these spaces will not disappoint. Take your company picnic, summer offsite, or birthday celebration to the next level with a unique outdoor venue.
And, it doesn’t hurt that these spaces are also an Instagramer’s dream. Bright colors, loads of light, and green outdoor spaces that are enough to make any photo pop. You can check out some of the summer events that are already happening with #MadeInPeerspace.

Bright Sun, Big City! The worst of New York in the dead of summer: riding the subway, anywhere.
