Temperatures have finally made their way into the upper 80s and lower 90s here in Hickory, just in time for the official start of summer. Although we’ve had our share of rain this month, the long days and nights assure us that summer has indeed made its appearance. Whether you are a current resident or you are considering renting one of our luxury apartments, you might be wondering about the types of amenities we have here at our award-winning community. As it turns out, there are a number of amenities at The Legends that are perfect for long summer days and nights. Let’s take a quick look at them below.

5 Fun Things to Do This Summer

Take a Swim

It wouldn’t officially be summer without a dip in the pool. Thankfully, here at The Legends, we have two resort-style swimming pools to help cool you off on those long, hot days. Both pool areas feature sun decks with comfortable seating that is perfect for lounging on while working on your tan, reading a book, or catching up on your social media. Even better, conveniently located pergolas offer a reprieve from the intense sun when you need it. Whether you choose to hang out and relax in the shallow end or have a heated game of Marco Polo with friends, you’ll love spending time at our pools this summer.

Get in Shape

Of course, if you are going to be spending a lot of time at the pool this summer, there is no better time to get into shape and shed those few extra pounds that everyone seems to pick up over the winter. Our state-of-the-art fitness center has everything you need to get in a solid workout before work, after work, or even on the weekends. The ellipticals and treadmills in our fitness center offer a variety of cardio exercises to get your heart pumping and your blood flowing. Looking to build or tone your muscles? You can easily do so with our high-quality weight machine and you can even watch TV while you’re exercising!

Play Some Ball

Do you love playing tennis, basketball, or volleyball? If so, you’ll be happy to know that we have amenities that were designed with your competitive spirit in mind. Our luxury apartment community features two tennis courts, a basketball court, and a volleyball court, all of which have nighttime lighting so that you can play virtually anytime you want to. Gone are the days of having to get in the car and drive to one of the local rec centers in town to practice your technique or play a quick game with your friends. The sports amenities here at The Legends are well-maintained and they are completely free for our residents, making them some of our most popular amenities.

Have a Movie Night (or Day)

In a perfect world, the weather would be warm and sunny all day, every day. Unfortunately, this just isn’t the case. Even here in the utopia that is Hickory, we see our fair share of rain and inclement weather during the summer when it may not be feasible to hang out at the pool. Or, there may be a day when you just feel like staying indoors and re-watching the Harry Potter series. You’ll love spending time in our theater room on days like this. Outfitted with a large screen, high-tech surround sound, plush theater seats with cup holders, and a microwave for popcorn, the theater room has everything you need for the perfect movie night (or day).

Cookout with Friends

Who doesn’t love a good cheeseburger with a side of macaroni salad and a nice cold beverage? Summertime and cooking out with friends and family go together like french fries and ketchup, which is why we offer several gas grills in our common areas for our residents to enjoy. While our luxury apartments feature spacious decks, they likely aren’t big enough to host all of the family and friends you’d like to share a meal with, at least not comfortably. Our community gas grills enable you to host your gathering outdoors where there is plenty of space and they are perfect for a light barbeque lunch or dinner shared with family and friends.
