Summer 2016 Bucket List

I'm leaving soon for my summer holiday and I'm looking forward to catching up on some of my favorite things in the USA this summer. I have a ten day trip to Japan ahead of me, and then I'll be visiting a few of my favorite cities in the states. I'll only be back for about a month and I have a lot I want to cover, so I put together this list of things I want to accomplish. Each of these cities I've visited before.
