The Best Nostalgic Sounds of Summer

The Best Nostalgic Sounds of Summer
  • Opening Intro -

    There's no doubt about it, summertime is when the best memories are created.

    Every year people make memories without realizing it until one is triggered by a sight, smell or sound in the future.


If you recently had a surprise pop-up memory, maybe it was caused by one of these five most nostalgic summer sounds.

Singing Cicadas

If you remember those long, hot summer days that seemed to go on forever, they were often marked by the high-pitched sound of cicadas. You always knew the day would be a scorcher when you heard that sound.

Cicadas singing from the treetops definitely brings back memories of swimming and drinking lemonade on endless, hazy days.

Screen Door Slam

No summer sound is as recognizable as the slam of a screen door. You can almost hear mom yelling at you to stop slamming the door!

Reliving those memories can be fun when you add a cedar screen door to your own house.

They’re a great part of summer, giving you easy access to your backyard and letting the kids run back and forth between indoors and out, just like you did!

A Carousel

Amusement parks seem to always sound the same, although they bring back different memories for everyone. The sounds of the carousel, the roar of the roller coaster and faint sounds of kids screaming on rides all mesh together to create unforgettable memories of summer fun.

When you hear those sounds, you can almost taste the fried dough and cotton candy.

Hungry Seagulls

If you spent summers on the coast, you only have to hear the sound of a seagull to bring those memories front and center. Couple that with waves crashing on the shore and you’ll be taken right back to the beach. You’ll swear you could almost smell the ocean water.

A Thunderstorm

Have you ever wondered why people seem to love thunderstorms? Storms often are accompanied by a warm, cozy feeling after the skies darken and you’ve run for cover.

The sound of thunder brings back memories of being safe inside, often under the blankets by candlelight if there was a power outage. For many, just the roar of thunder brings back these thoughts in an instant.

Sounds From the Past

Remembering a long-forgotten summertime memory is like getting a little gift from the past. Sometimes they can also be great additions to the present, like a screen door or, if you can swing it, a long day spent swimming without a care in the world.
