But you do not have to travel to have a great vacation. There are often many great places to visit close to where you live. We recommend checking out the local newspaper and do a quick search on Google to see what types of activities you can find close to you. Planning a couple of short trips can be very successful and is a good solution if you do not have a long vacation or you are planning a vacation another time. 

Whether you travel or you stay home, you may need to add something new to your wardrobe and this can be a great time for this. There are summer sales several places, not to forget the great outlets. Remember also that you can save a lot of money if you buy winter and other out-off-season products in one of the many outlets.

But no matter how you chose to spend the summer, remember to use the correct sun screen so you do not burn. Sunburn has been proven to increase the risk of skin cancer.
