Summer Bucket List

I’ve got summer fever.

With Memorial Day just around the corner and the weather kind of warming up, I’m dreaming of all of the things I want to do to make the most of next few months.

Here in New Hampshire, I think we are very lucky.  We’ve got the ocean and the mountains right in our backyard.  We are a summer travel hot spot.  We get travelers from all over the world to see the beauty our state has to offer.  Lots of locals feel like there’s no need to leave the state for summer vacation.  Pick a spot, any spot, in NH for a day trip, weekend away or longer, and you are guaranteed to have fun.

Here’s what my summer bucket list travel plans in New Hampshire look like:

Beach time

I love the beach no matter the season.  But there’s something about sand, sun and surf when the temps are hot.  Granted, I’ve lived in New Hampshire for over 12 years and have never fully submerged my body in the Atlantic – It’s too dang cold!

Over the years, prAna dresses have become a staple in my summer wardrobe.  My newest obsession is this prAna Ardor Dress.  Super comfy with a built in bra, this dress can easily go from beach to town with no worries.

FYI – If you are in need of new swimsuit, prAna has THE BEST suits for active ladies.  There’s no need to worry about wardrobe malfunctions while chasing after your kids or playing a game of catch on the beach.

Be a Tourist

There are so many charming little towns in New Hampshire that I’ve yet to really explore.  Whether it’s finding a hole in the wall restaurant or quirky shop, I love pretending to be a tourist.

You may notice my prAna Brenna pants.  They make an appearance in every season.  I love the fabric, the cut and the color.  Although I really think I need to get another pair in a different color.  I was hesitant about ordering the Yvonna T-Shirt in white but I’m so glad I did.

It’s super cute, lightweight and perfect for summer.  Now if I can just keep it free of stains.

SUP Yoga

Two years ago I fell in love with SUP yoga.  My fears of falling in were quickly put aside as I enjoyed the gentle sway of the water under my board.  And what if I did fall in?  Sure it would be REALLY cold but I’d warm up quickly once back on my board.

Mountain Top Yoga

First we hike, then we yoga.  I only got to go once last year, but it was so fun to hike to the summit of Gunstock Mtn. and then enjoy a yoga class under a blue sky.  Have you ever stood in mountain pose on a mountain?  It feels pretty amazing to have the sun warming your face and the wind blowing gently through your hair.

Of course, my summer bucket list contains a million things running related too.  Like hitting the trails, running up some mountains and soaking in the warmth and sweet sweat before the temps drop again.

  1. Hello! I haven’t been reading blogs in a while but felt compelled to post a comment because I just ordered my first prAna swimsuit and spent the weekend in it. It’s AMAZING! And totally running-after-a-2-year-old friendly! Going to have to check out some of your other suggestions!
