We’ve been there. There’s only so much time before summer ends and your first year of college begins. Things to do, people to see, vacations to enjoy. For those of you looking for ideas to make this summer the best one yet, we've compiled 31 of our favorite summer activities. 

Some of these are easy to check off and some of them require a bit of effort and exploration. Either way, we're sure these will make some outstanding memories. Share your achievements on Instagram with #PacificBucketList!
