How To Have An Epic Summer (+Free Printable!)

How To Have An Epic Summer! + Free Printable Bucket List!

Summer is finally here!  It’s time to break out the bucket lists & make this summer epic!

I’ve gathered lots of links & ideas together to make sure your summer is the best one ever!

Food + Drink

For me, the best part of summer is the food!  There is so much great food in season right now.  I’m loving the fresh watermelon & strawberries!

It would be so fun to go berry picking!  Check out this site to find local berry picking areas!  There are also a ton of roadside stands out there right now.  Just take a drive to the country & follow the homemade signs to find the freshest produce!

Once you’ve picked your berries, it’s time to make them into jam!  Check out my cherry jam post to get the best recipe ever for small batch jam!

Summer is also the time for BBQ’s!  Check out my post about what to bring to a summer potluck for perfect sides to make!  You can even check out my “Potluck Food” Pinterest Board for more ideas!

If you’re into desserts, you can always make my pineapple upside down cake!  It’s guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser!

If drinks are more your thing, check out my 10 drinks to make this summer!  If that’s not enough, check out my “Drinks” Pinterest Board with 1,600+ more ideas!

Fairs + Festivals

Fairs & festivals are so much fun this time of the year!  This site has a good directory of all the fairs & festivals going on!  Also, Facebook & the local newspapers always have the latest on what’s going on in your area!

With the 4th of July coming up, there’s also going to be fireworks!  Doing a quick Google search of “Fireworks near me” yielded tons of results for fireworks displays!

Pools + Beaches

With the weather warming up, it’s time to hit the beach or the pool!

Here are 50+ of the coolest pool floats ever!

Yard Sales

Yard & garage sales are in full swing right now!  I’ve gotten the best deals this year by shopping yard sales.  Neighborhood Facebook groups always have good listings for yard sales.  Craigslist is also a good resource to finding sales.  My personal favorite is just following yard sale signs when I’m out & about!  You never know what you’ll find at a yard sale!

What are some of your favorite summer activities?  I’ve included some of my best ones in my Epic Summer Bucket List printable below!  Just click on the image & print it out!
