5 Best Places to Enjoy a Cigar Outside
2 July 2022

There are few things in life more relaxing than enjoying a cigar with friends, but the right place and activity can make this experience even better. Here are my top five picks for enjoying a smoke outside:

1.  On the deck

One of the best places to enjoy a cigar is on the back deck. Why? You can smoke a cigar while enjoying the outdoors, while enjoying the company of friends, or enjoying the company of family and pets. This is especially true if your outdoor space is surrounded by trees or other foliage that blocks out any light pollution from neighboring houses and streets. An outdoor fire pit, some tiki torches and your favorite drink puts this smoking experience at the top of my list.

This is the most popular place to enjoy cigars among my male friends, but it’s not limited to just men—it’s something everyone can do and when the wives join in, it makes for an amazing evening! Make the experience even better with some old fashioned cocktails using the Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrel aged old fashioned mix!

2.  On a boat

If you’re looking for a way to relax and enjoy some quiet time with friends, smoking cigars on a boat is one of the best ways to do both. When you smoke cigars on a boat, you can watch the scenery go by as well as catch up with friends in an atmosphere that’s more relaxed than being indoors. Plus, who doesn’t love being on the open water, rocking gently in the subtle waves and catching a cool breeze.

A relaxing afternoon on the water is a perfect time to enjoy your favorite wine and has always been one of my favorite pairings with a great cigar. Check out the Bright Cellars wine club to discover your new favorite wine and lace up your boat shoes for a great time!

3.  In a park

A park is a great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors, and generally has the benefit of tables or benches available for hanging out with friends or family while doing so. You can take in nature, enjoy the sun, or get lost in your thoughts with a great book. And if you’re looking for some company, there’s nothing wrong with that either! Whether you’re alone or with friends and family, having a cigar in a park is always fun—and maybe even relaxing. Just be sure to adhere to any ordinances or regulations in effect – with all the liberal cry babies attacking our right to smoke in public, finding cigar friendly parks might become harder.

One additional benefit of many parks is the availability of outdoor grills – hosting an afternoon cookout at the park is a great way to enjoy some family or good friend time while smoking your favorite cigars. If you need some primo meat cuts to complete your park cookout experience, check out DeBragga Butchers and get premium steaks, chops, chicken and more delivered right to your door!

4.  While fishing

Fishing is a relaxing hobby – usually, and one that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. It’s also a great way to spend time with friends or family, as well as take some time out of your day to rejuvenate yourself. Bonus: Fishing is a great way to get some exercise!

It may not seem like it at first glance, but when you consider how much time many people spend sitting at desks during their workdays (and even at home), it becomes clear that doing activities that get us moving—even if they’re simple—is important for our overall health. With this in mind: If you want an excuse for some exercise while enjoying your favorite cigar, head down to your favorite nearby body of water; take along your favorite rod and reel for catching fish (and maybe something tasty for cooking and eating them), and a travel humidor and you’ll be set for hours of relaxing fun!

5.  On a mountain peak after a long hike

There are few places more beautiful and peaceful than atop a mountain peak after a long hike. The view of the mountains will be breathtaking, while the fresh air and quiet will help you relax. You’ll also get to spend some quality time with your friends who are there with you on this adventure! It’s an especially good idea if any of them are cigar smokers too; then you can enjoy your stogies together while taking in all that nature has to offer!
