The best way to kick off the summer is season is with a list of fresh ideas of things to do to relax and have fun this summer season. Here's my Summer Bucket List. Enjoy!
1. VISIT THE BEACH
I cannot make it through a summer without dipping my toes in the ocean.
2. GET CRABBY—BLUE CRAB
One of my favorite traditions is getting messy eating Maryland Blue Crabs. Sweeter and more flavorful than Dungenes, these guys are the perfect summer treat to pair with grilled corn on the cob. Don't live on the east coast? Have a bushell overnighted from here!
3. HIT THE FARMER'S MARKET
Summer is the season for fresh vegetables and stunning formal bouquets.
4. HAVE A PICNIC
Take an afternoon to enjoy the weather and beautiful scenery or sunset.
5. MAKE POPSICLES
The adult kind that is...... Here is a great recipe for Raspberry & Lime Sangria Popsicles. These are so refreshing after a hot day.
6. DRAW WITH CHALK
Summer is the perfect time to find your inner child. Your art could also make a great Instagram image #HALESUMMER2015!
7. STARE AT THE STARS
With great Apps available on your phone like Nite Sky Lite™ you can learn a few things and get help searching for your favorite constellation.
8. GO FOR A BIKE RIDE
Grab a group and make it a social pub crawl.
9. BE A TOURIST FOR A DAY
Get out of your bubble and see the sites in your own town - visit a museum, walk around a new neighborhood or try a new restaurant.
10. TAKE TO THE AIR—HOT AIR BALLOON
This last one is on my personal bucket list. After making this list, I now need to make this happen.
