Summertime! It’s the season of pool parties, fireworks, and grilling out. Days are longer with sunlight and the evenings are balmy and sultry. Kids are out of school and us parents are scrambling to find things for them to do.

So today, I’m compiling a list of some of my family’s favorite Summer activities – The Ultimate Summer Bucket List.

Things To Do

We almost always take a small staycation. It’s fun to play tourist in your home town and explore where you live. We also do a summer road trip. This can be to a neighboring city on a weekend or a full trip across the country. Summers are a great time to satisfy your wanderlust.

Here in Texas, we survive summers by living in water as much as possible. This can be in your own backyard, water parks or resorts. But water activities automatically make me enjoy the scorching hot days of summer.

I always consider summer the season of simple pleasures. Sipping tea on a porch in the afternoon, catching fireflies at dusk, watching the fireworks on July 4th. It’s a great time to enjoy the little things in life.
