Summer Bucket List 2019

Initially I thought I would not make a summer bucket list this summer because I am starting classes again 3 days after graduation and I won’t have my typical summer off. But then I realized I still wanted to make a list of fun things I can do on days off to enjoy my first summer in Michigan! I have always gone home for the summer previous years, so there are a few summer things I have yet to experience! This bucket list is part Michigan or Grand Rapids specific places and thing and part just summer things in general I want to do. In case you missed it, I have done a Summer Bucket List since 2013, so click here to see all my previous ones!
