The pre-scientific, ancient Greeks explained the complexity of all matter around them in terms of simple substances. They narrowed it down to four elements: earth, water, air and fire. (Nacho cheese came much later, and would’ve been in a category all its own.)

We’ve decided to narrow the elements of a rad summer into those four categories. We’ve taken a few liberties. For example, for earthly fun you could visit a topiary garden; paddle the ocean on an illuminated stand-up paddleboard; catch some air doing indoor skydiving; or make your own s’mores over the tabletop fires supplied by Halcyon.

You get the picture. Enjoy all these elemental summer endeavors.
