Stars reveal their favorite summer memories

Jennifer Nettles

"There are a ton, but just watermelon always comes to mind, barefoot always comes to mind, fireflies come to mind, sitting out on the swing with my great-grandmother in the afternoons. Those visuals come to heart, I should say."

Nick Lachey

“When I was a kid, and my brother was a kid, we would go every summer with our grandparents to Lake Michigan and camp. And every summer, seven years in a row, we did this. That was a trip that we would always look forward to, and my grandfather is no longer with us, so those are memories that are very very meaningful to my brother and I."

Erika Christensen

"My dad used to take us out for ice cream every Saturday, and one of my little brothers would never finish his chocolate ice cream. He would get it over half his face, and he'd still have half a cone left -- and I would eat his too."

Carly Rae Jepsen

"Probably back in Canada, my dad used to throw all of us like sardines in the car and go on these two week-long camping trips that were probably really awful at the time, but I look back at them, and I'm like 'That was so much fun!' "

"Smash" star Katharine McPhee

“My grandparents had a lake house on Lake Idaho. They had the most beautiful house. There was a forest behind it, and they made a fairy trail for all the grandchildren. We had all these little traditions. My grandfather would be Ranger Rick and he would have campfires where we would roast marshmallows. Most people wouldn’t think that’s cool, but I think it is.“

Ballerina Misty Copeland

"Most of my summers are spent performing at the Metropolitan Opera House. So I'd have to say stuck in the theater not seeing daylight."

Model Tyson Beckford

“Hanging out with my son. We love relaxing and jumping in the pool. I’m a single dad so it’s good to have that father-son time. This summer I’m going to drag him on a trip to Spain.”

Model and "Girls Next Door" star Holly Madison

“Every time I take a trip with my daughter it’s a big event. My husband and I try to take her everywhere. We took her to New York over Memorial Day and that was a lot of fun. Every trip with her is a fun new memory.”

Singer Bebe Rexha

“Being back in Staten Island with all my friends in our backyards. We would have water balloon fights and take the hose and put it over our heads because we didn’t have a pool. Silly stuff like that. I just loved being a kid and being carefree.”

Radio personality DJ Prostyle

"I like traveling during the summer. I’ve lived so long in Florida so I’m so into the sun. I live in New York now, so in the winter it’s just like, ‘UGH!’ For me, summertime is feel-good energy. You walk outside and you feel the heat and the blue skies on a sunny day and you just automatically become happy."
