Summer Bucket List: 6 Activities To Try Before Summer Ends

Summer Bucket List: 6 Activities To Try Before Summer Ends

As the peak of the summer season approaches, that bittersweet feeling of embracing the warm weather and anything-goes mentality starts to kick in.

After a carefree summer with salt in the air, those end-of-summer blues may hit you in the feels hard. However, you can end the season with a bang with these six activities to try before summer ends.

Spend Your Day on the Water

While there were plenty of ways to enjoy the lake this summer, you want to end the season with a water activity you have yet to experience. If you’re into boating, consider kayaking as a step outside the box. Kayaking allows you to see wildlife up close, helping you establish a deeper connection with nature. You can explore the scenery and, who knows, even catch the sunset to end the relaxing experience.

Have a Last Hoorah at the Beach

You can expect to have a great time when there’s sun and sea. The Lake Michigan beaches have much to offer; you can lounge shoreside, work on your tan, hit the waves, and try surfing, snorkeling, or scuba diving. Why not let your inner child roam free and build a sandcastle? Sand is a natural exfoliant, so you’d essentially have fun and preform skin care at the same time here! 

Have Fun at the Fair

Nothing sends off the summer season like a fair in town. If you haven’t gone, now is the ideal time to treat yourself! Whether you’re just walking around, riding thrilling rides, or enjoying a corn dog and fresh lemonade, it’s worth it to spend a day at the fair. And, of course, who can say no to funnel cake? It’s the star of the show! Find an upcoming fair here.

Become a Tourist in Your Town

For those partaking in big city living, a journey awaits, and it involves plenty to see and do. Visit a niche museum, discover new restaurants to expand your palate, or check out an attraction you’ve had on your sightseeing bucket list. Just because you live in an area doesn’t mean you’re automatically familiar with your surroundings. Exploring new horizons is magical, and you never know what’s in store. There are lots of attractions in Northwest Indiana ready for you to explore.

Become One With Nature

Whether hiking on a new trail or visiting a botanical garden, the outdoors are there for you to embrace. Being one with nature allows you to appreciate the beauty around you, enriching the soul with inspiration galore. Northwest Indiana is home to over 35 Hiking Trails.

Kick Your Feet Up and Relax

Between the outings, summer itineraries, and excitement, sometimes all you need to end the season is a much-needed break to unwind. Lounge in the open air on a hammock and let the birds sing you to sleep. You’ll be ready to continue your end-of-summer farewell when you wake up.

Having a summer bucket list with activities to try before the season ends is the blueprint for making your break the best one yet!
