I’m a gal of lists, so I thought I’d share with you some of the things on my “It isn’t summer until we do this” list. Please share what’s on YOUR summer list in the comments!
In no particular order:
See a movie at The Drive In:
Drive-Ins.com is your source when you’re wondering “Where is the Drive In Near Me?”
(I’ve mentioned before that I’m really concerned about how the transition away from 35mm film to digital projecting is going to affect these independently owned mom & pop businesses, as so many of them are only open seasonally. In a perfect world we wouldn’t see any of them close because of this, but with it being reported that the conversion costs around $100,000 I’m really afraid that next summer their numbers will have sharply declined. So get there while you can – and put your money in their pocket so they can afford to make the switch!)
Eat at a Seafood Shack!
Since this is my list, and I’m a New England gal, this means fried clams with bellies, and on my birthday,if I’m lucky, a lobster! and nothing fancy, please – a cardboard box and a picnic table are all I need.
Get Burgers and Hot Dogs!
Road Trip to Someplace You’ve Never Been:
Get Ice Cream!!
Ride on a Vintage Carousel:
Visit a Wacky Roadside Attraction:
Then the next thing you know you’re doing THIS!
Play Some Classic Arcade Games:
Play Miniature Golf:
The sport of miniature kings.
Get Car Hop or Curb Service!
Nothing says summer to me more than eating a meal in the Retro Roadmobile with the food and drinks perched precariously on a tray hooked to the window. Bonus points if there’s icy root beer in a frosted glass mug!
Visit a Regional Fair:
Go to a Vintage Amusement Park!
We took the Retro Roadfam to Knoebels and they LOVED IT!
Go To The Beach:
Or Just Hang Out on The Patio:
It’s all good!
So what’s on YOUR summer fun list that isn’t on mine? I’d love to hear all about it!
