Now that spring has finally sprung and the weather is warming up, most people are looking for new ways to enjoy the outdoors. As much as we love running, hiking, biking, and jaunts to the river and beach, you don’t need to adventure somewhere to enjoy the breeze. All you need is an outdoor rocking chair to be well on your way to a lovely morning, afternoon, or evening. It’s a piece of patio furniture definitely worth investing in.

Of course, not any rocker will do. You want to find one with stellar reviews and loads of support. To save you from searching, we found 10 top-rated outdoor rocking chairs that you won’t regret adding to your porch this summer.

1. A blue wicker rocker

Why buy a neutral rocking chair when you can opt for cobalt blue?

This isn’t your grandma’s wicker rocking chair. The modern design features a powder-coated aluminum frame and weather-resistant synthetic wicker, helping it withstand even the breeziest salt air. Just keep in mind that it’s not UV-resistant, so fading is possible. There have yet to be any complaints about this, as this much-anticipated rocker just launched at the fan-favorite retailer, Article. Given how much we adore the company’s indoor furniture (we rated Article as one of the top places to buy furniture online), we can only expect the same quality from this indoor/outdoor rocking chair. It’s available in two colors: graphite (black) and sienna red (a rusty orange).

Because why buy one when you could have two?

Wishing you could rock alongside your loved one? While you could purchase two of any outdoor rocking chair that fits your fancy, this set offers you two top-rated chairs for what’s essentially the price of one. The slanted chairs, which are sold in four colors, are designed to help you sit back and relax. They’re made of sturdy steel and can support up to 250 pounds per chair. And, if you’re worried about the vibrant color fading, fear not. The powder-coated finish is designed to keep UV damage at bay.

Swivel Rocking Chairs

If you plan to put your rockers in a place where a lot of movement takes place—say, between the grill and the pool—it’s worthwhile to consider a swivel design. That way, not only will you be able to rock to your heart’s desire, but you’ll be able to turn to keep an eye on the action at all times. These swivel rocking chairs, which are sold in 13 variations, are one of the best-selling pieces of patio furniture at The Home Depot.

9. A child-sized rocker

Sit back, relax, and chat with your loved one.

If you’ve ever been to Cracker Barrel then you know just how synonymous the restaurant is with rocking chairs. With that in mind—and knowing that little ones like to rock, as well—we couldn’t not include a classic Cracker Barrel kids’ rocker. While made of durable wood, it should be placed on covered porches (like those at Cracker Barrel) or indoors because it’s not fully resistant against wind, rain, or sun damage. Even still, it’s too cute (and too well-reviewed) to pass up.

10. A rocking chair conversation set

Sit back, relax, and chat with your loved one.

So often rocking chairs are sold individually, which is why we like this conversation set that’s available in three colors. It comes with two rockers and a table to go between them, which might inspire breakfasts on the deck, happy hours on the patio, and quiet moments watching storms roll in. It’s the perfect set for building connections and memories. And, thankfully, it’s built to last with weather-resistant frames and cushions, as well as strong tempered glass on the table.
