Summer bucket list ideas with friends

What's On Your Summer Bucket List?

2 minute read

Aiming for 10-15 activities is a great start for planning your summer bucket list. The summer is three months at best and you want to ensure that the tasks are attainable within the timeframe. Don't think too hard! Get creative! What have you always wanted to do, but never really had the time or chance to? Have you always wanted to learn how to crotchet? Has skydiving been on your mental bucket list, but you were too afraid to take the leap? Now is the chance. 

Here's what you'll need to create your original summer bucket list:

  • Writing utensil and a sheet of paper 
  • Markers/Creative tools
  • For inspiration 'Summer Bucket List Pinterest' is your best friend 

Similar to a vision board, a bucket list is the perfect opportunity to employ "delusion." Put on a playlist of your choice and vibe out! We highly recommend the 'Brain Break Playlist' , which offers a chill and comforting vibe. Begin your list for your summer bucket list. Having a tangible summer bucket list that you can store in your wallet or within your phone case is helpful, especially as the days begin to pass by. There will be times when you accidentally complete a task while on the go. Checking off or crossing out that activity in that moment provides a sense of instant gratification. 

Summer Bucket List Ideas: 

  • Visit a drive-in theater 
  • Get in the studio and create an original song 
  • Learn something new 
  • Write a book 
  • Whale watching 
  • Skydiving 
  • No Phone Day
  • Host a tea party 
  • Road trip to the nearest city 
  • Go to a concert of an artist I've never heard of 
  • Get a piercing 
  • Get a tattoo 
  • Horseback riding 
  • Dye my hair 
  • Make ice cream from scratch 
  • Camping
  • Drive a boat 
  • Write a letter and mail it/Pen-pal with a friend 

The world is your oyster. Remember keep the list short and if you're unable to complete every task, roll the incomplete items into next year's summer bucket list.  

Are you a solo girly or a team player? 

After attempting to create a summer bucket list with friends, a few summers ago,  I realized that planned summer group activities was no my thing. We put a great deal of effort into planning and prepping, but unfortunately the plans stayed on the paper. Creating group or summer bucket lists with friends was not MY thing, but if you have a reliable friends that are down, go for it. Are you willing to compromise or navigate the schedule and funds of others? Do you enjoy spontaneity? These questions are important to consider before creating a summer bucket list with friends. If you decided to create your summer bucket list with friends or go solo; including them or not including them is always an option down the line. 

Summer bucket lists are inherently fun and challenging. Summer bucket lists are a great opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone and do all of the things! Make sure to take lots of pictures and share with us some of your summer bucket list ideas below!
