Summer (as if it doesn’t already feel like it) is HERE!!!  We thought we would jot down a few ideas on how to make the most of it – a Summer Bucket List if you will.  

Living in Nanaimo, we are extremely blessed with all of the gorgeous scenery to look at and explore.  So here is a quick list of how you can get out, enjoy and make some summer memories.  

🌞A bike ride through one of the amazing trails around town. May we suggest Bowen Park.  

🌞Camp out (or Glamp out) …and the backyard does count!

🌞Have a water balloon fight, just remember to clean it up after.

🌞Swimming – A lot of swimming.

🌞Movie nights (drive in or one of your local community events).

🌞BBQ’s – We don’t hide our love of BBQ’s and Summer backyard events.  Check out our recipe blog for some ideas.

🌞Read – go hit the library and get their suggested Summer reading list for this year.  You will be happy you did!

While you are enjoying all of the incredible Summer activities Nanaimo has to offer, here’s a few things to keep in mind….

  • Sunscreen 
  • Hat
  • Blankets in the car for impromptu picnics
  • And try to go device or electronic free mode as often as possible
