Summer in DC Bucket List

Sunset over National Harbor

This post is about two things I love: summer time and making lists.

      1. Enjoy as many summer sunsets as possible. I took the picture above a few weeks ago on a visit to the Capital Wheel at National Harbor.
      2. Pack a blanket and snacks and watch a film outdoors at the park.
      3. Make watermelon granita.
      4. Practice more yoga.
      5. Go hiking at Shenandoah National Park.
      6. Host a successful picnic or an alfresco dinner party.
      7. Go to an observatory and star gaze.
      8. Paddle boat on the Potomac.
      9. Make s’mores, preferably over a bonfire.
      10. Visit the Library of Congress.
      11. Go hang gliding.
      12. Visit Monticello, home of my favorite president.
      13. Go to an outdoor concert. One Republic and The Script on June 27!
      14. Rent a bike from Capital Bikeshare and tour DC from a different perspective.
      15. Take a road trip to Philadelphia to see the Liberty Bell. And eat a cheesesteak. And a soft pretzel.
      16. Finish a beach read.
      17. Go to Busch Gardens and ride all the roller coasters.
      18. People watch in Dupont Circle.
      19. Go to a Nationals baseball game.
      20. Make homemade ice cream.
      21. Take a nap on a hammock or porch swing.
      22. Catch the meteor shower in August.
      23. Watch fireworks.
