End of Summer Bucket List

New Fire Summer Mini 2021

It may be August, but summer ain't over yet! There’s still time to soak in those long days and warm nights with your friends and family. Here are a few of our ideas for making some late summer memories.

  1. Sunset - Grab a bottle of wine and a blanket and catch the sunset with your boo or your besties. Need some inspo? Check out this list of the best places to watch the sunset in the Ville!

  2. Outdoor Movie - What’s more fun when you’re a kid than an outdoor movie? To be honest, it’s pretty fun when you’re an adult too! Need all the gadgets? This projector and this screen are just a few clicks away!

  3. Ice Cream - Nothing says sweet summertime like a trip for ice cream after dinner. Especially this time of year when temps are sky high. Check out our local faves Louisville Cream or Comfy Cow in the Bluegrass.

  4. Local Farmers Markets - One of our most cherished summer weekend activities is taking the fam to select fresh produce and check out the goods of our local farmers markets. Besides having much more flavorful fruits and veggies than the grocery store, Farmers Markets can be a great learning experience for our little ones. Try discussing which items are in season and why and talk to the farmers about their produce. Plan to take your time, try all the samples and turn that boring grocery trip into a fun and educational experience for the whole family! Not sure where to start? Douglass Loop, St. Matt’s and Eastwood Village are a few of our favorite Farmer’s Markets!

  5. Go on a Picnic - You can’t let summer end without going on at least one family picnic! Don’t stress over packing up all those meals- make it easy and support local restaurants by picking up takeout for your picnic. Check out Louisville Family Fun for so many great ideas for picnic spots with amazing takeout nearby!
