Summer Bucket List

With summertime comes events and activities the whole family can enjoy. Whether going on a vacation or a day out on the town, there are plenty of opportunities for you to stay busy. Don’t waste your summer watching TV when you can go out and experience life to the fullest with this summer bucket list!

Have a beach day

Summer is the best time for beach days! Relax with the ocean waves and your feet buried in the sand while working on your tan on a hot afternoon. So, pack up your towel, put on your bathing suit, and fill up the cooler for a fun day at the beach under the sun!

Embark on a road trip

Summer break brings family vacations that create lifelong memories. Make your stories on the trip, not the destination. Fill up the car and take the opportunity to enjoy the corny tourist traps along the way. Many people go to Disneyland but only a select few have seen the world’s largest pistachio!

Catch up on your reading

Stay indoors and enjoy some quiet time this summer. Pick up the book you started reading 6 months ago and dedicate some time to finally finish it. Reading gives your eyes a break and helps cut back on your screen time. This also improves your brain function and reduces stress!

Attend a concert

Summertime is concert season and it’s not hard to music festivals you can attend. Whether it’s at the arena downtown or a free show at a local park, concerts are an exciting time! You never know what you’ll find and you can always find something new to listen to. Give a new musician a try and take in some live music this summer!

Enjoy a drive-in movie

Visit a drive-in movie theatre and enjoy this summer’s blockbuster movies from the comfort of your car! Take in the nostalgic appeal of a drive-in movie theatre that many yearn for. Drive-ins are a retro movie-going experience and capture memories that will last a lifetime. Whether you choose a blockbuster superhero movie or a low-budget independent film, the drive-in on a Friday night is a great time!

Spend a day at an amusement park

Enjoy a day riding roller coasters, eating funnel cake, and spending quality time with the family! Amusement parks are all over the country and have their own unique draw to them. Go to a smaller community amusement park instead of widely known parks like Disneyland. Go for a ride this summer and hit up a local theme park today!

Buy tickets to a baseball game

Baseball is America’s pastime and the only sport that’s active during the summer months. Attend a game for a local team and show your support! A day in the stands with a hot dog, peanuts, and some cracker jacks is always a fun time!

Learn a new skill

Take advantage of the newfound free time you have and learn a new skill! If you plan on leaving the country, try learning your destination’s native language. Now is the perfect time to start a new hobby, find what interests you, and go for it!

This list is full of fun and we hope that it helps you have the most exciting summer ever!
