Summertime for kids in Maine is full of adventure and relaxation.  In a few months, they'll be back in the classroom and hitting the books.  It's the perfect time to make a list of things to do and experience to live up the free time of summer and we want to help you with that list.

We took some great suggestions from our followers on what to include in the 'Maine Kid's Summer Bucket List' and here are some items to start your kid's list or to add to what they've got already.

1. Dance to live music on the Bangor Waterfront
