Central Coast Family Summer Bucket List

Summer vacation is here and will be gone before we know it. I am always amazed at how fast it comes and goes. This year we asked our kids to help create an epic summer activity list and contribute to our Summer Bucket List. I am budget-friendly and appreciate the value of experiences, so we tried to be mindful of our choices.
