7 Items To Check Off Your Summer Bucket List

Summer is in full swing and there is plenty to do downtown! Make the most out of your summer and check everything off our Summer Fun Bucket List!

1) Go for a dip in the river
With extreme heat warnings becoming more and more frequent, nothing beats the refreshing feeling of jumping in the river! Grab your sunscreen and beach towel and head on over to the waterfront!

2) Attend An Event
There are lots of events happening during the summer! Whether you're looking for music, food, shopping or something fun check out what's happening downtown here

3) Spend a rainy (or maybe extremely hot) day indoors
The Aquatarium, the new escape room, museum, and library all offer loads of fun for every age.

4) Enjoy a summer exclusive beverage from one of the cafes. 
Whether it's refreshing iced tea or a frozen lemonade, check out one of the cafes for a cooling beverage! See the list of cafes here.

5) Eat on a Patio
Dinner with a view! Waterfront sights, beautiful sunsets and historical architecture add to any dining experience downtown!

6) Go on a walking tour
Ghost Walks, Criminal Past Walking Tours, and Waterfront Sunset Walking Tours, all fill summer evenings with fun facts and stories you couldn't even imagine that happened right here in Brockville! 

7) Buy that perfect summer piece
 Sun hats, vans, maxi dresses, crop tops, no matter your style there's an abundance of choice in fashion downtown. See everywhere to shop here. (Insider tip: loads of stores are already making room for fall items by having sales on their current summer stock)
