Summer Inspiration: Summer Bucket List

Summer is officially here! I always think it goes way too fast, and while I have the best intentions to do certain things, I tend to run out of time. So this summer I created an inspiration board and a Summer Bucket List! I tried to make the summer bucket list generic enough that it could give you guys some fun ideas of things to do too!


Summer Bucket List

  • Visit a waterpark
  • Hang out at our local pool
  • Have low key date nights with the husband
  • Discover new walking trails
  • See an outdoor movie
  • See fireworks
  • Visit the Arboretum
  • Try a new summer water workout
  • See a summer blockbuster type movie
  • Eat ice cream on the porch swing
  • Make summer salads
  • Spend time on the water
  • Host a summer get-together with friends
  • Host a game night
  • Attend a local summer fair
  • Catch a firefly

As you can see, most of these are things that anyone can do anywhere. Summer is such a great excuse to spend more time with friends and family and game nights and dinners are a great example.

Enjoying ice cream on our porch swing is one of our favorite past times, and I want to make sure we do that a ton this summer. One of our favorite ice creams are Weight Watchers Ice Creams! We love the Dark Chocolate Mint and the Dark Chocolate Raspberry which have the most fun bright colors. Perfect summer dessert! Plus you can enjoy it without any worries! Who wants to worry in the summer? NOT ME!

Visiting a waterpark is something I have not done since I was a kid. I love waterparks. I especially love lazy rivers. Floating on a raft all day? Yes please!

I am someone who feels like the epitome of summer is anything outside (even though I do NOT love the heat) so enjoying a drive-in movie or a movie outdoors in a park is something that I just can’t say no to! At the Nasher Sculpture Center in Downtown Dallas they do movies in the dark where you can bring blankets, snacks, wine, etc. I am all over that!

Probably my favorite part of summer is watching fireworks or setting off fireworks. Nothing says summer nights quite like fireworks. Aside from maybe catching a firefly. Also something I haven’t done since I was a kid. Gotta love semi country living!

What is something on your summer bucket list?

  1. I don’t have a summer bucket list but if I did I imagine the item on top of it would be sleeping in uninterrupted for one day. Those ice pops sound yummy!

    Yay for summer! I’m currently on a road trip around the States and Canada with my partner so it is already turning out to be a great season for exploring some new areas of my home continent. I also love getting out and hiking in the summer, and outdoor rooftop movies are the best! 🙂

    Great list! I’m hoping to spend some time on the water as well by going sailing with my dad. I also really want to get back into horseback riding which I miss so much since I moved to the city. The only question is where to find a horse is downtown Toronto…
