Summer Bucket List Ideas

By Hayley Donigan

Don’t let summer pass you by without doing something different, original, and out of your comfort zone. Here is your inspiration to try out a daring new activity, stay somewhere quirky, and go somewhere you’ve never been before. Glamping Hub has got you covered—this is the ultimate bucket list for making the most out of summer 2015.


Have an Adventure

From going on an African safari to scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, each of our glamping sites is surrounded by opportunities for thrilling recreational activities. Seize the day and get your blood pumping by trying white-water rafting, zip-lining, or mountain climbing in the great outdoors. Your adventure awaits.

Stay Somewhere Unusual

The best part of glamping is the opportunity to stay in a completely unique vacation rental, such as an igloo, a tipi, or a cave. Most people go on several vacations throughout a lifetime, but few stay somewhere entirely original and extraordinary. Choosing just one place to stay is the hard part, but feeling like a kid again is the priceless pay-off.

The Dalai Lama once said, “Once a year, go some place you’ve never been before,” and this summer is the time to put those words to action. Whether you’ve always dreamed of exploring the Amazon rainforest or you’re dying to take a road trip across Europe, there’s no better time than the present. Pack up your bags, hit the road, and get that last-minute flight—we promise you won’t regret it.

That's what your summer bucket list should really be all about, anyway—adventures, experiences, and memories with your loved ones.
