It doesn’t matter how old you may get, summer always seems to bring the promise and allure of awaiting adventures to be had. Although we often create long, detailed lists of things we’re “actually” going to get around to doing this year, we rarely put those dreams into action. This summer, it’s time to make that change. To help, we’ve compiled a list of 7 things everyone should have on their bucket list for this summer.
1. Go on a picnic
Who said picnics were for your childhood? Grab a group of your best friends, some lawn games, a giant blanket, and your favorite dishes for an afternoon in the park you’ll never forget. (Click here for picnic experiences)
2. Get in tune with mother nature
The sun is basically beckoning you to get outside and explore! Try a new hike you’ve heard about, go swimming in the lake, rent a kayak for an afternoon, or even just go for a walk around the park. You just might be surprised what you’ll find! (Click here for outdoor experiences)
3. Spend a day being a tourist in your own city
See your home from a brand-new perspective as you tour the main sites and attractions. It’s never too late to fall in love with your city all over again. (Click here for a list of experiences by city)
