Carpe Diem in the Windy City

We all have one — that long bucket list of things we’d love to do but just haven’t seemed to have the chance to do yet.  What’s on yours? Skydiving? Going on that cross-country road trip you’ve always dreamed of? Seeing the Northern Lights?

One of the biggest obstacles might be that you haven’t found the right people to take these plunges with.  Enter the Chicago Bucket List Meetup.

Founded over five years ago in the Windy City, this inclusive and active Meetup has endless amounts of wacky adventure. “Our group is diverse but we all have something in common – we love to have fun!”

Ready to go dragon boat racing? Uh, yes. Check.

Pushing yourself to try new experiences gives you not only the chance to check some activities off the ole bucket list (with some great adrenaline rushes!), but also the ability to find that *something more* that you’ve been craving — a deeper exploration of you.  And maybe, just maybe, you’ll add some new friends along the way.
