Summer / Grand Rapids Bucket List

Now that summer has officially arrived in my book I figured it'd be a good time to make our summer bucket list! There's nothing I love more than checking items off of a list so this really shouldn't be a surprise ;) Something else worth mentioning about this list is that it might not just be a "summer bucket list" it might be our Grand Rapids bucket list as there is a very high possibility that we will be moving come August. But that's a story for a different day.. so onto our list!

  • Visit John Ball Zoo
  • Paddle board at Millennium Park
  • Attend at least one Movie in the Park showing
  • Go to a Whitecaps game
  • Watch the 4th of July fireworks in Downtown
  • Visit the Meijer Gardens
  • Attend at least one comedy show at Dr. Grin's
  • Walk/ride bikes around Reed's Lake and stop for ice cream at Jersey Junction
  • Have professional pictures taken Downtown
  • See the Pink Floyd light show at the Planetarium
  • Have a picnic at Lookout Park
  • Visit the Gerald R Ford Museum
  • Enjoy a beach day in Grand Haven
  • Eat at all of our favorite GR spots (I have a list of 15 restaurants!)
  • Spend one Saturday at the Farmers Market
  • Wander around The Downtown Market
  • Host one final party at "Casa de Veto"
  • Play a round of mini-golf
  • Check out a movie at The Wealthy Theatre
  • Land an SLP job- bonus points if it's in West Michigan!

Phew! It's quite an extensive list so we'll see if we have enough time (and money) to check all of these off  :) What are some fun things that you'd like to do the summer?


  1. This looks like a really fun list of things to do! I hope you have a great summer.
