SUMMER VACATION

SUMMER VACATION

“Travel is certainly more than seeing the sights; it is a change that goes on deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”   –  Miriam Beard

I attended a graduation this evening which led me to realize school is almost finished for this part of the year and that means summer vacations.

And given the economy, you might be wondering what you can possibly afford to do and still enjoy the season.  Well, there are actually a lot more things than you might imagine.  Budget travel has come a long way since the roadside motel and “staycations” have become a popular way to take time off in your very own neck of the woods.

Whether you’re looking for a fun family overnight trip or something interesting to do closer to home, the following link to an article titled “Budget Vacations” will give you some pretty great low-cost/no cost vacation ideas that will be sure to make your summer sizzle.

Have a great summer and don’t forget the sunscreen!
