Summer Bucket List

Summer bucket lists are fun, they give us something to look forward to and are great when we need a little inspiration when we're looking to shake things up a bit on weekends that can become more routine than spontaneous! Here's a few things I wouldn't mind checking off my list! 
Explore more of New England // If our trip over Memorial Day Weekend taught us anything, it's that you don't need a car to explore some of New England's best destinations. We'll be making a dent in some hot spots soon! 
Berry Picking // For as much as I love going apple picking, I can't believe we've never gone strawberry or blueberry picking! There are loads of farms that you can pick your own berries near the city! Might even have to make a pie to commemorate all the fresh fruit! 
Head to the arboretums // We take advantage of being outside as much possible this time of year, as I'm sure all of you do! Pretty lucky to live so close to two really pretty arboretums - The Arnold Arboretum & there's actually one at Mt. Auburn Cemetery - found out about this through Christina's Snap Chat!! 
Franklin Park Zoo // I haven't been to the zoo in years!!! I love animals and we wouldn't have to go too far to enjoy the zoo so it's a no-brainer that we have to go this summer!
Enjoy as many lobster rolls as possible // I don't think this one needs much explanation, but I plan on enjoying as many lobster rolls as possible this summer and I suggest you all do as well, especially if you come to Boston! Check out my favorite one here

Go to a drive in movie // This has been on my list for years!!  There is something quintessentially summer about seeing a movie outside and ever since I saw the movie Grease (when I was so little) I've wanted to go to a drive in!! We don't have any nearby, but it's possible so we'll make it happen! 
What's on your Summer Bucket List?

  1. I haven't been to a drive in since I was little!!! My dad used to pop popcorn and put it in big brown paper bags and I'd take my favorite blanket. I'd be eating as many berries as I picked!! So fun!! Love your list and I need a lobster roll!!' ;-)

  2. These are all great summer bucket list items! I haven't ever been berry picking, either. I love going to the zoo, such a fun time, and drive ins are awesome. I went once in high school and it was really neat!

  8. This is such a fun bucket list! I have ALWAYS wanted to go to a drive-in movie theater but the closest one to us is pretty far away. And we make a point to go to the zoo every summer so I DEFINITELY support that one--it's such a blast!!

  12. I would love to go to a drive in! I don't even know where I can find one in Canada. And berry picking for the win!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. omg yes to all of this. you could almost rename it "new england summer bucket list" which is perfection. i LOVE the drive in movies - there's still a SUPER old one in my home town in PA. and berry picking is the best! then you can freeze all the ones you don't eat. love!

  16. I'm actually posting a very similar post today. I have loved reading other bloggers goals, or in your case, a bucket list. I find time escapes me (I mean all of us, really). I started setting seasonal goals for myself. I hope you tackle these! Drive in movies are so much fun! The oldest drive in theater in Ohio is located in my home town! I've been there a million times!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Those all sound like super fun things to do this summer! I hope that you're able to do them all.

  18. my goal is to get to the arnold arboretum! you'll love the cemetery! you won't even feel like you're in one bc there are so many pretty things to look at. get a map beforehand or use the mobile app! xo

  19. Great list. I haven't been to the Franklin Park Zoo in years, I totally want to go there.
    There is a Drive-In Movie theater in Wellfleet that I have heard is great. However, that is a ride for us. Wish it was a little closer.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Drive-ins just scream summertime! They're so much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh this is such a great list! I definitely want to go berry-picking this year and there are a few places close to me I want to check out. There are a few drive-in theaters too that I have been DYING to go to for years also. Hope you get to cross all these off your list and have an amazing summer :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Such a fun list! We went berry picking one year and loved it. A drive in sounds perfect too. I love the idea of making a list. The last time I did that, we actually made more of an effort to get to the things we talked about.

  24. Living in the country, I have lots of places that have blueberry or strawberry picking. I'm like, just pick it for me & let me drive up & let me buy a fresh carton ;) haha

    ReplyDelete
  25. What's on my bucket list is to head up to New England and enjoy some fresh seafood, especially after seeing your little lobster roll peaking through in the collage...yummy! I've never been berry picking either and haven't gone apple picking in YEARS! I definitely need to suggest it to my husband, it bet it would be so much fun! I hope you're able to check all of these off your list this summer, beauty! Thanks so much for sharing and Happy Wednesday!

  26. I've always wanted to go berry picking! Fresh fruit for yogurt in the morning is my kind of summer. And, yes to a drive in movie - so, so fun.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Always love your seasonal bucket lists! Omg a lobster roll sounds amazing! We have a food truck by us that has them and I haven't tried it yet! I guess that's now on my bucket list for summer ;)

  29. Lots of fun things on this list! I think a drive in movie would be so fun! I dont think there are any close to where I'm at though (I remember looking a while back). Hopefully you get your chance!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I wish we had a place where we could go berry picking, I would love that! And drive in movies are THE best! We have a drive in theater in our city and we love it and try to catch a movie there at least once a month. So fun! Hope you get to check all of these off your list!

  32. Do drive-in movie theaters still exist? lol I haven't been to one in prob over 15 years but they were always a fun outing. I've been dying to go strawberry picking and blueberries would be my second choice. I'm looking forward to exploring New England vicariously through your upcoming trips.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Going to the zoo is definitely on the list for my summer this year!! I'd also love to go to a drive in movie!! Hope you manage to do all the fun things on your list! x

  36. A drive in movie sounds so fun! And I absolutely love going to the zoo! One of my favorite things, although I prefer to go in the fall or winter here lol! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  37. Bucket lists are so much fun and even more fun when you get to cross things off of them! A drive-in movie has been on my list for years, too! One summer :) xo

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh, I have ALWAYS wanted to go to a drive-in movie!!!! We don't have one here, though. Our city does always do a movie night under the stars, though, so we'll have to try to make one of those eventually! So much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  39. We have to go to the drive-in at least once every year, it's definitely the quintessential summer activity! I love lists so that I actually get some fun things done and because it's the only way my brain can function anymore haha. I hope you're having a great week beautiful lady! XO -Kim

  40. Gosh I haven't been to the zoo in years, I think I might need to add that to my list as well. My kids were so small they would probably love to go again too!

  41. Drive-n movies are the best! We really don't have them in Michigan, but I grew up going to them during the summers in Pennsylvania!

    ReplyDelete
  44. These are such great bucket list items! I need to make some moves on getting mine together because it's nearly July 4th already..GAH!

  45. A drive-in movie sounds like such a blast! There's a drive-in theater close to us, and Chris and I just need to actually make it out there one Friday or Saturday night! They always remind me of the movie Grease too!

  46. I've been wanting to go to a drive in movie forever too! I really wanted to go berry picking this year, but it didn't work out. The berries are so delicious this time of year!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love your list! Berry picking is the best - you get SO MUCH for your money and they're way more delicious than buying them in the store! And lobster rolls, all the heart eyes!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love that you picked some unique things - berry picking is such fun and I love the idea of a drive in movie!

  49. Summertime in the Boston for me is all about Red Sox games and eating as much lobster as I can ;) I love this list!

  53. I hope you find a drive in! There's one in Atl I visit every summer. You can grill out beforehand and it's really fun. I've also rented a projector and shown a movie at my house on a white sheet--there's an old post on it. Love your list.

  54. This all sounds so perfect, especially the lobster rolls and drive in movie!

  60. Such a fun list!!!! I have always wanted to go berry picking yet I never make it a priority and I dont know why? Exploring new areas is always fun.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yes to enjoying as many lobster rolls as possible! We have a lobster roll food truck in town that I practically stalk, it's so good! I can't imagine how good they are in NE though!! Happy Summer :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Great list! Most of these are on mine too... Except I definitely spend as little time outside as possible! Way too hot. But we can still do things like the aquarium (indoors) and various museums. We just need to save trips to the arboretum and the zoo for spring and fall :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love everything on your list girl! The zoo is the best... have kids and you'll go all the time! Ha!!

  68. I'm having so much nostalgia from your list! My grandparents took us blueberry picking every year when I was younger, but I haven't been in forever. We went to the drive-in all the time in high-school and actually had two different locations I think, which is probably kind of weird since I guess they're not that common? I can't wait to see the other things you cross of your list, so I have more fun things to add to my to-do list for my return trip to Boston one day! haha

    ReplyDelete
  69. Ahh yes to the drive in! We have one near us and we haven't went in a couple years. Growing up it was one of my favorite things to do! Great list of fun summer things!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Great things for your summer bucket list. I'm crossing off a few of my bucket list items this weekend and can't wait!! I've heard Houston has some drive in movie theaters so I need to check one out after I move :)!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I want to go strawberry picking as well! We will see if it happens. Sounds like a fun list!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Sounds like the perfect summer bucket list!! I'm dying to explore more of New England... I drove out to Wheaton last week and I was like, "okay... there's a whole different world outside Boston that I need to explore!"

    ReplyDelete
  73. There is ONE drive-in left in NJ and it's not all that far away. I've never been but think I need to add that to some bucket list of mine!

    ReplyDelete
  74. oh i love the drive ins! we used to go allllllll the time when i was a kid but i don't even think there is one in KY anymore. i'll have to look, or maybe i can make my mum take me when we go back next year. so fun. i have never been berry OR apple picking, hopefully this year!

    ReplyDelete
  75. On my summer bucket list is lots of pool time and traveling! And just adventuring in general. I get bored easily so I love a good weekend trip or adventure somewhere. Going to drive ins are so much fun! And I love apple picking. I used to do that in CT all the time. :)
