The weather here on the SouthCoast has been starting to heat up, so cue the official countdown to the first day of summer!

I grew up on the complete opposite side of the U.S. from Southeastern Massachusetts, so my summers may have looked a little different than those here on the SouthCoast. As a kid, I remember taking trips to Washington's rock-filled beaches, spending whole days braving the rickety, old rides at the Evergreen State Fair, and visiting the animals every year at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle.

It has officially been two months since I moved to Massachusetts and started my new journey here on the SouthCoast, so earlier this week, I asked FUN107 listeners to send in activities that are either on their summer bucket lists for 2021 or perfect suggestions for what a SouthCoast summer first-timer should add to their to-do list for the months ahead.
