Besides the holiday season, for many lucky kids there is no time of year more alive with possibility than that first heady, happy stretch of summer vacation. Endless weeks of lazy, hazy days loll out ahead, with not much to do but explore, hang out and have fun.
For older adults, the summer months can hold just as much promise. Daylight hours last longer; getting around is generally easier; flu season is done and gone; there tend to be more family events to attend. Vitality abounds!
The catch for older folks is: summer doesn't seem quite so endless. In fact, as with everything else in life, there are some years when you blink and you can completely miss the whole season. Enter the summer bucket list, a great way to make the most of your summertime experiences. We love the idea of seniors filling theirs with their favorite summer activities. Here are some of our suggestions to get the ball rolling.
