The Ultimate CMB Summer Bucket List {with Challenge}


The Ultimate CMB Bucket List

Thank you to Gorman Heritage Farm for sponsoring our 2016 Summer Bucket List and for providing Cincinnati families with an amazing place to visit, learn, play and enjoy time as a family. Gorman Heritage Farm is a 122-acre working farm and outdoor education center, which invites its visitors to explore and learn the history, methods and values of a working family farm in a natural setting. We are located on Reading Road in Evendale, Ohio. The Farm is one-half mile south of Glendale-Milford Road.

gormangreenThis year’s bucket list offers 60 ideas to keep you busy this summer. There is something for every budget, interest and age. We know you are going to want to dive right in to all of these fun ideas, but before you get started, we want to issue a challenge.

This year we are extending an official CMB Summer Bucket List Challenge. It’s simple to play.

  4. After all 6 pictures are posted, email us at [email protected] so we can verify your completed challenge.
