NYC Summer Bucket List: The Summer that Never Sleeps

Summer is here, which means the days of flip flops, ice cream cones, and longs walks on the beach are upon us. With a million things to do in the city and only so many summer days to spare, my friends and I decided that we needed a summer bucket list (obviously!). And since any self-respect bucket list means a ton of fun and doesn’t leave you with empty pockets, most of the things on this list are free.

So here’s our list so far in no particular order:

  • Walk the Brooklyn Bridge
  • Kayaking on the Hudson River
  • Brooklyn Museum’s First Saturdays
  • Rollerskating
  • Photoshoot in Central Park
  • Brooklyn Botanical Garden
  • Walk the entire High Line
  • Go to a gallery opening
  • New York Aquarium
  • Taste Junior’s Cheesecake
  • Start a book club
  • Brooklyn Bowl
  • Afropunk Festival
  • Jones Beach/Fire Island
  • Go to a play at Shakespeare in the Park
  • Start a book club
  • Watch a movie outdoors at the HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival
  • Ride the Wonder Wheel on Coney Island
  • Try a new food at Smorgasburg
  • Run a 5K
  • Salsa in the park
  • Ride CitiBike through Manhattan
  • Buy something unique at a flea market/street fair
  • Attend free yoga classes around the city
  • Take the train to Rockaway Beach
  • Have fun at Summer Streets
  • Go to all 5 boroughs
  • Visit Governor’s Island
  • Find a hidden bar
  • Laugh at a new comedy club

…let the games begin!
