Summer Bucket List


There are signs of summer all around us. This is the favorite season for many. While the temperatures in the desert get quite warm in the summer, there is still a lot of fun to be had.

Summer officially kicks off on Friday, June 21st, on the summer solstice. This is not only the start of summer, but it’s the longest day of the year.

Whether or not your summer has already begun, you still have time to make a summer bucket list. A seasonal bucket list is the perfect way to make sure that you make the most of the long summer days. I honestly think that bucket lists are great for everyone. I’m serious, you’re never too old or too young for a bucket list. Breaking your bucket list down by season allows you to plan and make sure you really cross off those items on your list.

A Few Tips

  • Add something new and a little out of your comfort zone to your list.

  • Snap a few photos as you work through your list. You’ll be happy you have those images in the future.

  • Bucket list items can be small and easy to do.

  • Don’t worry if you don’t accomplish everything on your list, you can always carry a few over to the next season.
