Summer 2019 Bucketlist
The day you have been waiting for is here – the official start of the summer season. Although it may seem like it will last forever, don’t let the time pass you by. If you are seeking an adventurous summer, we have some great ideas for you to make it exciting and memorable. Add these to your summer 2019 bucket list and explore what the world has to offer you.
There is no better way to immerse yourself in nature than camping outdoors. Grab a pair of hiking boots, all of your camping gear, and pitch a tent in the open air. If you don’t live near any camping grounds, there are national parks across the country like Biscanye (FL), Acadia (ME), Hot Springs (AR), Yellowstone (WY), and Yosemite (CA) that are ready for your visit. For the more adventurous traveler, head to Vanoise National Park in the French Alps. As the first and largest mainland national parks in France, Vanoise is perfect for hiking through lakes and mountain biking in the spring and summer season.
2-Attend a concert
Summer is an excellent time to grab a drink with your friends and listen to great music. Buy a pair of tickets to your favorite artist on tour or attend an outdoor music festival. On summer nights, concerts are the ideal way to make lasting memories and surround yourself with good vibes.
3-Take a road trip
It’s a fact that taking road trips is the most memorable way to travel. Hit the road with your favorite driving comrade and seek out your own summer journey. For breathtaking coastal views, head to the Pacific Coast Highway in California, or for natural mountainous terrains, drive through Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. Spending the summer in France and wanting to rent a car? We recommend the scenic drive to the incredible Verdon Gorge, only a two and a half drive from Nice, France.
4-Plan a breakfast feast
If you haven’t experienced the joys of making a homemade breakfast with your companion, then you haven’t had the perfect summer morning. To make your morning hassle-free, try this innovative Cookut Miam Shaker which prepares pancakes, waffles, and crepes with ease. Pair your meal with some mimosas and fruit for a relaxing morning before your big day.
5-Visit a local swimming hole
Long, hot summer days were made for cooling off in the water. If you’re tired of visiting the same lake or ocean, change it up and take a trip to a nearby swimming hole. Stay ahead of the crowd and explore these unique natural springs around America. Ginnie Spring in High Springs, Florida, is coveted for its clear water and underwater caves. Also check out Blue Hole in Santa Rosa, New Mexico, to find crystal blue water and even an underwater cliff. Filled with other adventure seekers, these rare swimming spots are sure to become your new summer paradise.
6-Take a hike and watch the sunset
Skip the daytime summer temperatures and opt for a late afternoon hike up to your favorite view. Not only is it a great way to stay active and get out of the heat, but also it gives you time to appreciate the simple wonders of the world. At the end of a long day, there is nothing like watching the sunset while surrounded by nature.
7-Spend the day on a boat
Boats are a man’s best friend. Grab your swimsuit and get out on the water to cool down from the summer heat. Whether you’re having a day out on the lake, cruising on a sailboat, or lounging on a yacht, soak up the sun rays and enjoy the warm weather while you can. This 1789 Cala Anchor Bracelet is a stylish addition to get you in the mood for your satisfying day out on the boat.
8-Read your favorite book
Take a break from technology and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Need a fascinating summer read? We recommend bestsellers ‘Into The Wild,’ by Jon Krakauer, and ‘Between The World And Me,’ by Ta-Nehisi Coates, that will quench your thirst for adventure and perspective. Get lost in these novels while reading outdoors to earn a well-deserved dose of vitamin D.
9-Go to a sports game
To add some excitement into your summer schedule, cheer on your favorite team and treat yourself to seats at their next game. Whether it’s soccer, baseball, basketball, or golf, sports games are always a great excuse to drink a beer or two and enjoy some stadium nachos. There’s nothing like some friendly competition and an outing with the guys to create good energy.
10-Get outside and volunteer
While treating yourself to notable experiences is a great payoff for hard work, giving back to your community is a reward of its own. Whether its donating money, volunteering outdoors or serving the homeless, there are endless ways that you can support people in need. As you appreciate all that you have been given in life, it’s important to make a difference in other people’s lives so that they can foster this same appreciation.
