10 Summer Bucket List-Worthy Activities

Hey all!

As a bucket list blogger, I thought it might be fun to compile ten items you can cross off your bucket list this summer. Have fun!

1). Go to an indoor trampoline park: These are springing up everywhere and they’re a blast! Try to find one near you.


2). Go horseback riding: I tried this one for the first time last summer and had a blast! Even better, go horseback riding on the beach if you can.


3). Go geocaching: If you have never heard of geocaching, it is basically a giant outdoor treasure hunt. Visit this website for more information!


4). Go strawberry/[insert fruit for appropriate season here] picking.


5). Watch a sunrise and sunset in the same day.

6). Go parasailing!


7). Start a “nice things jar”: Write at least one nice thing that happens to you everyday and put it in a jar.


8). Go to a wine tasting.


9). Explore caves near you. Many places offer fun caving tours. Go explore!


10). Go on a hike.


Has anyone crossed any of these off their list already? I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Reading your list is almost as good as the season. Thanks!

    I love this! What a great idea. πŸ™‚ Although I might have to replace the horseback riding one with something else considering I have a couple horses and ride regularly. Thanks!

  3. Love this – I’ve been fruit picking a lot as a child but never as an adult, I’ve also done hiking, horseback riding and watched a sunset and sunrise in one day and I’ve done loads of indoor trampolining. I will definitely start a nice things jar – love that idea! Thanks for posting!

    I went horseback riding once when I was a teenager. My first horse decided he wanted to go back to the barn after about three minutes. My attempts to persuade him otherwise resulted in him trying to knock me off… he won. The next horse I got insisted on following behind another horse and would not let me ride along side. He even bit the other horse in the butt. I think he liked her. I decided after that I was probably not meant to be a cowboy. πŸ™‚

    I love your list! I’ve been hiking, geocaching, horseback riding (but not in a very long time), sunrise/sunset watching, & cave exploring. I don’t drink, so wine tasting is out. Once my bummed shoulder is all healed up from surgery, I’ll add a trampoline park. Parasailing continues to sit on my bucket list for whatever reason. I will start the “Nice Thing Jar” today. Thanks for sharing.

  6. What a great list! Parasailing would take some major convincing but it looks fun πŸ˜‰

  7. We have “Skyzone” trampoline park here near Cleveland, Ohio. I took my girls and I had the best time. And it is great exercise! Yes, you must try this!

    I’ve been to an indoor trampoline park! They’re so fun! You hit the nail on the head with that one (:

  9. Denise [But First, Live!] says:

    LOVE IT! I need to parasail this summer!

    And everyone should also try PADDLE BOARDING! =D

  10. it was so nice to see how blessed I am because I have done everyone of those if not more than once πŸ™‚ Truly blessed πŸ™‚ thanks for your blog it always reminds me of this.

  11. equinoxio21 says:

    About 8 out of 10 I guess. But I’ve been around more. Parasailing no, but parachute yes! (Crazy!)
    Have a lovely week-end!

  12. trentpmcd says:

    I watched the sun rise over a small lake this morning (before 5 am) and will go out in a few minutes to watch it set

  13. Summer Lover says:

    I love geocaching and parasailing! Keep it up!

  14. Nussaibah says:

    That’s is definitely a great list! May add some of them to mine

  15. Such a great list! The trampolines sound fun! As for me, I’d love to save up money and go for a private pilot’s license! Thanks for sharing, and God bless! =)

    • Yes, it’s so much fun! But ah, that sounds awesome too πŸ™‚ Same to you!

      • Thanks for your kind words, and take care! I hope you don’t mind my saying, but you are pretty as always! πŸ™‚

        I’m really excited about someday starting the flying lessons, because they’re honestly not as expensive as I expected them to be (they are about $150 / hour, but that includes instructor fees, which can be deducted once I get ready for solo flights–apparently sites like this one [ http://www.aso.com/ ] actually have aircraft for sale at prices that are pretty reasonable as well).

        I was wondering–are there any non-profit restaurants where you live? My city’s downtown area has a cafΓ© that generally runs on donations and makes itself available to people who may not otherwise be able to pay for their meals. Instead, they can volunteer their time to help out the restaurant, and they get their food through essentially a service-bartering system. Of course, other people come by and help simply because it’s a lot of fun! While I’m very thankful to have found and started a new job, I do regret not having the time to volunteer there like I had been doing. Actually getting to help prepare meals for people along with friends who really know how to have fun is absolutely a blessing from God, and I couldn’t have more to be thankful from that experience even if I stopped and thought about it. I don’t know how common this sort of establishment is, but if any exist in your area, I’d definitely give helping out at one of those a try.

    Love this blog and will be accepting the challenge to do as many as I can this year.

    So rebloged this…

    Thank you xx

    Such a great post! Loving the pics, going to start a nice things jar πŸ™‚

  18. Noni Sadzi says:

    Been wine tasting already!! I definitely want to try Geocaching πŸ™‚

  19. I go geocaching quite a bit. My favorite one was one morning at a hotel in Texas. My road trip partner needed another 30 minutes of sleep so I jumped on geocaching.com and found one nearby. That was my first out of state cache. πŸ™‚ I plan to cross a few more things off my bucket list this summer, including but not limited to: going hiking in Tahoe, moving to another state, getting back down to my pre-broken leg weight, learning how to operate a tractor, and learning more survival skills. πŸ™‚

    • That’s awesome you go geocaching often! I love the Texas story. I did something similar in Georgia when everyone was still sleeping or working out at the hotel we were at and it was so fulfilling finding one out of state πŸ™‚ Those sound like some great bucket list goals!

    For me, it’s gonna be my first triathlon. Excited!

  21. shalilah2002 says:

    Yes I can really go for the nice thing jar.

  22. frugoal says:

    Great list! I am doing something that terrifies me this summer…doing a new blog all 93 days of summer…ugh!

  23. Atiba says:

    I’ve done horse riding on the beach!

  24. I wanted to take a long walk….I did, it was 500 miles and took 56 days. I am 68, but don’t act my age, I removed it from my bucket list. It was #10 on my list, new list in the works! It was the Camino de Santiago from France to Spain.

  25. Enjoying the updates loads! I have nominated you for the very inspiring blogger award take a look at my blog to participate πŸ™‚ Terri x
