Stay Cool at the Pool With These Summer Must-Haves

The hot days of summer are here at Arcadia Run and if you need us, we’ll be spending our days lounging by the resort-style pool! You really don’t need much to enjoy a day at the pool, but we’ve found some items for your pool bag that once you try, you won’t be able to live without for the rest of the summer. Check out some of our new favorite pool must-haves below!


Towel Clips

No need to worry about readjusting your towel every time you rotate to tan, or making sure it doesn’t fly away in the breeze. These towel clips will keep your towel in place, and come in a variety of fun shapes and sizes! At a great price, you can pick up a few pairs for yourself or neighbors who you love to hang by the pool with.


Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

Time to turn up the jams! Whether you’re listening to Lorde’s new album or botching the words to Despacito, these speakers will keep the fun going all summer long. Waterproof speakers are a must at the pool, and these will keep working whether a cannonball splashes them or a sudden thunderstorm rolls through.


Novelty Pool Floats

We donut hate these cute pool floats! Spend a hot day cooling off in the pool on one of these floats, available in shapes such as donuts, pineapples, or even a flamingo. Get the perfect summer Instagram picture of you and your friends on the swan float and you will be the envy of everyone at the pool.


Drink Tumbler

Glass isn’t allowed at the pool, so keep your drinks cold with a plastic or metal tumbler. If you know you are going to get a lot of use out of this tumbler, you can splurge on a Yeti insulated tumbler that will keep your drink cold all afternoon! If you’re looking for a deal, check out these tumblers on Amazon that come in every possible size and color. If there is no room in your pool bag for a tumbler, no worries! You can always grab some water at the Clubhouse, or take a few steps back to your apartment home.


Waterproof Phone Pouch

The pool is for you to go swimming, not your phone! Don’t be afraid to take your phone to pool with a waterproof pouch. They will keep your phone and any other electronics safe from the water, even if you accidentally drop them in the pool. Spending a few dollars on one of these bags is a much better alternative than replacing your phone altogether!


The best part about the pool at Arcadia Run is that you can bring whatever you want and you’re sure to have a great time! Learn more about Arcadia Run Apartments all we have to offer by visiting us online.

Our Top Poolside Reads for Summer 2017

We’re just a few weeks away from Memorial Day Weekend 2017 and you know what that means: the re-opening of the pool at Arcadia Run! Bring on the lazy summer days spent poolside with friends, splashing around with the kids, or laying in the shade with a great book. It can be hard to decide on what book to choose, but we’ve decided to give you a list of our favorites to help make it easier! All you need to enjoy this summer at Arcadia Run is a spot by the pool and a book to read!


Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Big Little Lies was the show that everyone was talking about this spring, but did you know it was a book first? Don’t worry about trying to binge watch all the episodes; you’ll be hooked from the first chapter! Murder, intrigue, sassy housewives…this is the perfect book for an afternoon at the pool.


Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult

From the author who brought us ‘My Sister’s Keeper’ comes another thought provoking story about the real life problems that exist in today’s society. Follow along as Ruth, a nurse in Connecticut, deals with racism, privilege, and how one determines the justice of it all in this book that you won’t be able to put down.


Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Don’t let the title scare you! Think less numbers and scientific equations, and think more about questions that people ask themselves. How do we fit within the universe? What does it all mean? Tyson breaks down some of the most complex and interesting aspects of our world into quick chapters that are easy to understand and will be perfect for contemplating under the sun this summer.


The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines

Calling all lovers of HGTV’s hit show Fixer Upper! Chip and Jojo, the amazing husband and wife team taking over Waco, Texas, decided that a TV show wasn’t enough and put pen to paper to bring to life their entire story. From how they met, to their first fixer upper, with plenty of photos, you’ll fall in love with this book and rush to catch the next episode of their show!


Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Hawkins gripped you with her novel ‘The Girl on the Train’ (also a movie with Emily Blunt) and does it again with ‘Into the Water.’ With twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very last page, your friends will be begging to borrow this book when you’re done with it!
