Here's an idea for summer vacation. Stay in your own state. Start off by visiting your local state tourism office and picking up brochures of state attractions. If you have time, you could also send off for your state's tourism booklet. People seem to always want to travel outside their own state or country to vacation/holiday. Why? I'm sure there's places within your own state you've probably never seen and would enjoy. State parks, national parks, campgrounds, museums, etc are all available within each state. So when was the last time you vacationed within your own state?
