To be perfectly honest, as much as I’ve enjoyed the freedom of summer (and blogging), I can’t wait until school starts again. The chance to meet new people, join organizations, and the all-encompassing upcoming football season will make this a year to remember.

However, that doesn’t mean I’m done with summer completely. As a matter of fact, I still have some things that I’d love to do before I’m shut away in a lecture hall for the next nine months.

3. What’s Left on your Summer Bucket List

First on my Summer Bucket List is to go to San Antonio and enjoy the River Walk. I’ve been before but since the River Walk comprises of mostly bars, I haven’t really been able to enjoy the atmosphere that San Antonio provides. Besides, who could forget the Alamo? The history, charisma, and of course the River Walk itself, make me want to go again, especially after already visiting Galveston, Austin, and Houston.

Look how pretty!

Next on my list is actually in Colorado. Since I’ll have a week to spend up there, I’ve taken another look at some of the sights and sounds that I’ve grown up with, and realized that there wasn’t a whole lot I explored. Sure, I did Denver, Castle Rock, Red Rock, and Boulder, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. This is one of the reasons why most of my list has Colorado-esque stuff to it, and I’m starting with Mesa Verde.

Soooo pretty!

Mesa Verde has the most beautiful ancient ruins in the whole of North America. It’s rock that’s been carved out into multi-functioning structures that are still around today. I’ve always wanted to go, and this coming week, I want to take that chance.

Next on my list are two towns: one I’ve been to before and one I’ve never been. I’ve never been to Vail and I’m ashamed to admit it. Pretty much any person who’s grown up in Colorado has skied down Vail’s resort once, and yet I haven’t. Now I doubt there’ll be any snow in Vail when I get there, but I’ve always heard good things about the town and things to do there.

The town I’ve been to before is Silverton. I camped there once with my mom and brother a few years ago, and I’d love to go again. The train is awesome, the town is adorable, and the camping was actually pretty comfortable (and before you ask, we were in a tent. There’s photo evidence of that somewhere).

Last, but certainly not least, is an activity that I can do in either Texas or Colorado, but something I’ve never done before. I would love to go river tubing. I’ve only gone snow tubing once in my life, and now that summer is almost at an end, I think it would be fantastic to pop open a drink and just drift down the river.

So, that’s my summer bucket list that I’ve yet to get to! If you want to find out what else was on my bucket list, put it down in the comment section or hit up that Contact page. Now what about your summer bucket list? Have you completed it yet?
