Summer time is almost upon us again. And it is time for planning a summer vacation. Many people are on a much tighter budget these days and look for a way to vacation closer to home or even have a staycation. And that is certainly what I am thinking about this year. Many friends and work associates often talk about wanting to visit exotic or faraway places and bask in the beauty of the country. Well, this year they are focusing more on staying right here at home like me. This year we have planned to vacation close to home.
Maybe we will head to the beach for a few days or maybe a week. There's plenty of activities to enjoy. Playing games at the Casino, walking the boardwalk, and of course basking in the sun on the sandy beaches. And it's easy to take one of the many day cruises, go wind surfing, or even deep sea fishing. On rainy days we can take advantage of the big screen tv and get direct tv movie channels . The kids certainly enjoy building sand castles on the beach and riding their bikes on the boardwalk. This is starting to sound like a great family friendly vacation close to home. I guess I'll have to settle for visiting exotic faraway lands by watching the travel channel on my satellite TV.
