12 Things You Should Put On Your Summer Bucket List

There is so much I am going to be doing this summer, and I want you to enjoy it just as much as I will be. Here are some things that you should do or plan to do so you can make the best of your summer!

1. Go canoeing or kayaking.

Go to your nearest business that rents kayaks or canoes with some friends and spend a day on the river. I promise you won't be disappointed!

2. Go hiking.

I know, ew, exercise. But being one with nature and the fresh air is so nice. Even if you live in the city or not so close to mountains, you don't need it. Find some trails!

3. Volunteer

Go volunteer, you will feel like a million bucks, I promise. Go to your nearest homeless shelter, hospital, or even go to your neighbor's house and mow their grass. Do something for someone else. Do it with some friends, it could be fun!

4. Go camping

Grab a few friends or family members and go on a camping trip. Instead of staying in a camper, though, stay in a tent. Get the whole experience.

5. Go to a theme park or carnival.

Tap into your inner child and go ride some roller coasters, Ferris wheels, and other rides. Get that adrenaline pumping.

6. Go fishing.

I don't know about you, but fishing is when I go to my happy place. It's so peaceful to just sit there in the quiet and wait for the bite of the fish. Get your pole and go to your favorite fishing spot.

7. Have a bonfire.

Invite a bunch of friends, turn on some country music, and relax by the fire. Forget about everything for the night, and just be in the moment.

8. Have a movie marathon.

Be a couch potato for one whole day and grab some of your favorite movies. Watch them all day and night long. Don't get up unless you have to go to the bathroom or get more snacks.

9. Read a book or two.

I know during the rest of the months you don't have time to read, but this summer get those books that are collecting dust out. If you are like me, you buy books and never set away time to read them. Now is your time.

10. Go to a concert.

And again, during the rest of the year there is never time for a concert. This summer, make time for that too. You won't regret it. Plus, who doesn't love a concert?

11. Go on a road trip or just cruising.

Pack your car up and just ride on the open road. Stop at any place you want and enjoy your time. Don't have the money for that? Get in your car, roll the windows down and just cruise for an hour or two.

12. Go to a beach.

Whether it's an actual beach by the ocean, or just one by a lake or ocean. Go and enjoy the water and sand. Relax and tan.

Now I think you can do SOME of this. Why not try for all of it? Make the best of this summer and make some memories!

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
