Summer Vacation Plans

I wrote in a previous entry about making summer vacation plans and exploring destinations in your own backyard. That was a figurative term meaning to see what great attractions are in your local area.

An equally valid plan is to find a far-away destination and go for an extended period of time, at least a week. One of the best summer vacations I ever had was in Las Vegas. Admittedly, it was darn hot in Las Vegas in the summer, but most of the attractions are indoors and well air conditioned. Even the tram is air conditioned so you can get around to a large number of casinos and to the Las Vegas convention center via that method of transportation, thus avoiding the extreme heat. In fact, Las Vegas is one of the few destinations in the world that has an indoor amusement park (located in the Circus Circus) so you can actually experience an air-conditioned day on the rides.

If you want to be a little more adventurous, you can plan an overseas summer vacation. I was even reading a forum recently in which a participant was talking about his flights to Thailand and how he married his girlfriend and then honeymooned there. That would be a memorable vacation indeed! I don’t know how they booked their trip, but you can check rates and information on the website and then talk to someone to book your trip. What’s great about that is that you can do the research on your own and then speak to someone to confirm everything and get more advice or opinions on your vacation plans.

When the kids go back to school every year, the first writing assignment in English class is usually about what was done over summer vacation. What will your kids be writing about next September?
