Introducing your official summer bucket list:
If you’ve gone on a camping trip before, you know it’s a refreshing experience to get out and enjoy nature. Get away from all of your screens and technology and just focus on what matters most: your loved ones and the beauty that surrounds you.

Head to the Zoo
Didn’t come across enough wildlife during your camping trip? The zoo is the next best thing for you and the whole family.
A zoo trip is a must in the summer. There’s just something about seeing all of the exotic animals up close, rather than having to watch them on the Discovery Channel. Plus, your kids will never forget that time they were face to face with a lion, tiger, or an elephant. The zoo is a great place for photos and creating plenty of memories.
Check out a Ballgame
Even if you aren’t the biggest baseball fan, the experience of spending the day at the ballpark is uniquely enjoyable. Most ballparks, especially for minor league games, are excellent environments for kids. Who knows, they may even come away with a souvenir!
Wherever you live, there’s bound to be a ballpark or two near you whether it’s an MLB stadium or the home of a smaller minor league team. Either way, just grab a hot dog and some popcorn and have yourself a day to remember.
Have a Picnic
A summer necessity. There’s nothing like preparing a lunch and snacks, bringing along some towels and chairs, heading to the park, laying out and enjoying the day with the family. Pack a cooler with some of your favorite foods and beverages, and you’ll be well on your way.
If you want the camping feeling without spending the day in the wilderness, bring the Radiate Portable Campfire along with you to make your picnic even better. It doesn’t get much more simple and convenient than that.
Go to a Concert
Is your favorite band touring this summer? If so, great! If not, there still will be plenty of summer concerts worth checking out near you.
Even if it’s just a concert at your local park or restaurant, it makes for an eventful day with the family. Plus, there’s no denying that music in the summer is better than all other times of the year. Concerts are a summer staple.
We hope this gives you some great ideas for summer fun to enjoy with the whole family!
