We all have them. Hopes, dreams, bucket list items we’d love to cross off the list. So, what’s on your bucket list? Your answers and dreams are revealed here. Based on this unofficial reseach, it’s quite clear that most of us want travel, above all. With concert ticket prices so high and so in demand, it’s not surprising that made the list.

I posed the question on social media, and have complied a list of some of your answers. See if you dreams and your bucket list items are included here. What would you add? I loved some of the more creative answers too. Some of you are incredibly adventurous. “Hold a baby tiger” was one of the answers. Another bucket list item revealed the risk takers. “Get in a cage with great white sharks” came from listener Greg. Mark wants to run the Boston marathon.

Close your eyes and ask yourself, “what is something I’d LOVE to do on this earth, before kick the bucket?” Not to be morbid, but it’s inevitable, so we might as well dream. And who knows maybe your bucket list dreaming will help manifest something into reality.

What’s on your bucket list? Your answers and dreams are revealed, below. Bucket list dreaming is actually good for you, according to In fact, the article states: “Fitting more hobbies and fun into your lifestyle can bring a significant payoff as well. One fun and effective strategy for ensuring that you take the time you need for the “more fun things” in life (as well as some important goals you may have) is to create a “bucket list,”‘

  • 2. See All 50 States

    Visiting all 50 of the United States was the #1 answer. Some of you mentioned getting a RV to do so. I can tell you I did a cross country trip once and I would highly recommend it. There is so much to see, right here at home. Here are some city suggestions from Travel + Leisure. You can skip #10. You’ve likely already been to Boston.

  • 2. Nashville

    The 2nd most popular answer is easily attainable, and pretty affordable. Nashville is on the bucket list of quite a few of you, understandably. It is the home of country music. And you can walk up and down Broadway and see live music in most of the clubs, bars and restaurants. The Ryman Auditorium, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Bluebird Cafe and Grand Ole Opry are all must-sees.

  • 3. Alaska

    I too have dreamed of visiting this beautiful state. People who done the train or boat cruise in Alaska have raved about it. Quite of few of our Country 1025 listeners have this trip high on their bucket list. So much beauty and nature all around you. But there are better times to visit.

  • 4. Concert tickets

    Supply and demand. There is little supply and a big demand for the really popular shows this year. The ticket prices are driving us to dream, instead of be in the seats. The shows sell out so fast, if you blink, you’re out. It’s created a great frustration for music lovers like you and me. #1 on the concert ticket bucket list, according to you, is Taylor Swift at Gillette Stadium. Morgan Wallen’s shows at Fenway got a few mentions too.

  • 5. Aruba

    There seems to be a lot of love for Aruba, coming from New England. It’s a doable bucket list item, for sure. The flight is under 5 hours to get to tropical paradise  (from what I hear). I am putting this on my bucket list too!

  • 6. Europe

    At #6 on the list is in Europe. Some of you dream of Italy,like me. Some want Ireland. Some just say “anywhere in Europe.” It’s the history, the beauty, the food and the wine that have us yearning.

  • 7. Meet Country Stars

    Kenny Chesney and Taylor Swift are apparently at the top of your list of celebs to meet. Well done.

    Here’s Kenny connecting with his fans in 2018.

  • 8. Hawaii

    It’s a longer trip, and probably on the pricey side, but from what I’ve been told a trip to Hawaii is so worth it! Some of you have this as your #1 bucket list item. I mean…look at it! How could you not want to put it on your list?

  • 9. Other Bucket List Answers

    Some of you expressed a desire to start a business. Others have a 2nd home on the list. Florida is definitely a favorite , based on your answers. And one of you even answered, “Tuna fishing.” Keep those dreams and bucket list items coming.
