Summer Bucket List

Summer break is only a few weeks away, and while those weeks feel like years, it will be here before you know it! If you’re like me, summer boredom sets in about halfway through. Below are a few fun activities to do when you can’t decide. 

 

1. Go on a Road trip! 

Road trips are always fun, even if you don’t go far. If the only place you can go is an hour or two away, that still counts! Grab your best friend and a playlist and hit the road to see some roadside attractions or a city in your state that you’ve never been to. 

2. Go to a Museum 

Your city probably has a history museum or some historical site nearby that you can go walk around and check out. If you like learning new things and going on tours, then this is for you! You could also go to an art museum or an aquarium if that's more your style. 

 

3. See a Play 

In my hometown, there are a lot of community theaters that produce plays and musicals throughout the summer months. They also sometimes do them outdoors in a park in the community which is really fun, especially on a summer night! 

 

4. Go to a Drive-In 

Drive-in theaters are so fun and a lot of times they play double features, so you can see two movies instead of one! They’re typically cheaper than actual movie theaters as well, as some only have you pay one price per car rather than per person. 

 

5. Go to the Beach 

Who doesn’t love getting tan? Grab a book and some sunscreen and head to a nearby beach (or pool if sand isn’t your thing) and lay out in the sun! Swimming in the lake or ocean is also really good exercise and feels nice after spending time in the sunshine. 

6. Have a Bonfire

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is have people over to my house and have a bonfire. We all sit around the firepit and catch up over s’mores and stories. It’s a lot of fun and it’s always really low key. 

 

7. Have a Water Day 

Invite over some friends and fill up some water balloons and water guns. It’s so fun to be a kid again and get some relief from the hot temperatures. 

 

8. Go Mini-Golfing 

Real golf can be pretty difficult, but luckily there’s a smaller version that’s also a lot more fun! Grab some friends and head to the course; you can even make a competition out of it. 

 

9. Go to an Amusement Park 

If you like rollercoasters, go spend a day at an amusement park like Six Flags. Ride all the rides and make sure you bring your sunscreen! 

 

10. Go to the Farmer’s Market 

Your hometown may have a local farmer’s market on some days or nights during the summer. These are super fun, and it’s cool to see what people are selling. Farmer’s markets are a good way to get fresh fruit, but they’re not always only food! Sometimes other goods are sold at these, such as jewelry.
