Summer Bucket List

“Cause a little bit of summer is what the whole year is about”

-John Mayer


Summer should be spent having fun with your family and friends while making unforgettable memories. Trying to find something to do can be difficult, we all feel like that sometimes! Especially when you’ve lived in one place a long time, you may feel like you have done everything there is a hundred times, but what if there was a list that gave you some ideas of things to do with your friends?
