As the sharp-witted Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless, Justin Hartley finds himself in heaps of drama. But, in the real world, his life couldn't be any more different. Instead of courtrooms and corporate offices, the actor loves spending his free time swimming and traveling.

Justin chatted with about his travel plans, how he stays cool when the temperatures rise, and what's in store for Adam this summer. Read on for all the details. 

What are some of your favorite summer activities?
Justin Hartley: I'm with Chrishell [Stause] right now, and we're driving to Palm Springs. We're going to spend some time in the hot, hot heat and have some adult time. We go everywhere. Just the other day, we were going over the list of places we've gone over the past couple of years, like Mexico, Canada, Paris, and Brazil. 

I also love having a pool. I'm a big water baby. I'm a pretty good swimmer, but I'm also a pretty good lounger.

What's the best trip you've ever taken?
Paris is really hard to beat. I had been there a couple of times before with my mom and my sister, but I went with Chrishell a while ago. We sprinkled in tourist and local spots. It's good to do both. I'm a big fan of the tourist spots, but there's something so cool about going where the locals go.

How do you stay active during the summer?
I love hiking in the summer. My girlfriend [Chrishell Stause] has me taking these bootcamp classes with her, and they're really tough. I'm a big fan of doing anything you can do outdoors. 

How do you stay cool during the summer?
My daughter's a big fan of water balloon stuff, so we toss those at each other. 

What's the one thing you have to do this summer?
Justin: I gotta move! I've got to get in a pool.

What can you tease about what's in store for Adam this summer?
The deck is stacked against Adam and it’s not looking good. Maybe he’ll out smart Victor but he’s got to figure this out. 

Stay tuned for more interviews every Friday, and make sure to watch The Young and the Restless on CBS and CBS All Access
