An outdoor hammock is an easy and effective way to bring vacation vibes to your backyard. If you're anything like us, you're mourning the holidays that should have been – but with so many beautiful spring days, you can still have a staycation from the comfort of your own backyard with a hammock. After all, is there anything better than lounging around on a comfortable swinging bed with a cocktail in hand? We'll answer that: no, there is not.

Because hammocks come in all shapes, sizes and styles, there's plenty of options out there to suit your space. Some come with hardware included, so you can set up straight out the box, but others require you to buy a frame separately – something to watch out for before you buy. Of course, if you're that way inclined, you can even hang some hammocks between two trees for truly exotic vibes.
