171 Ideas For Your Summer Bucket List For Some Fun & Adventure (& to Sprinkle a Little Kindness Around, Too!)

Photo by David Lezcano

Hello, loves! Summer is just around the corner (and for those experiencing humidity and hot temps, it's already here). I love summer. It makes me almost giddy just thinking about the many adventures to be had, the people to meet with, and the new things to learn about yourself and the world. Bucket lists are a huge part of it, ever since I saw one in Seventeen Magazine a few years ago. I love using them to dream a little and to spring me into a different direction than I normally would go.

Below will be 100+ ideas to add to your summer bucket list. These ideas are meant to inspire you to have fun, seek constant adventures, step out of your comfort zone, and to sprinkle a little kindness around wherever you go.

Choose something if you run out of ideas for things to do or just need a boost in a different direction. I have also included links to the blogs where I got some of the ideas from. Feel free to check them out! I hope these things will help you to have fun, let down your guards, try new things, and become a better version of yourself. I hope you have an amazing summer full of love and adventure!
