Even though summer is supposed to be a time of kids being out of school, summer camps, and sleeping in, most people look forward to their summer vacation all year. There is always time for your family’s summer activities, sports and camps, but always make time for that one (or two) week trip that you and your family can enjoy!
Kids Are Out of School
The stress of school can be felt by all of us. No matter if you are a child, parent or teacher, the school year affects all of us. Even though most receive a fall break, holiday vacation and a nice spring break, there really isn’t anything like a summer vacation.
From staying up late, having no real plans, to the salty air and sandy feet, there is nothing better!
To a parent, the ability to not plan one solid thing for a week might be the top reason for a vacation. Being able to throw a swimsuit on each kid, grab a chair, and sit on the beach until golden hour is somewhat of a dream! No carpools, no scheduled lunches, and definitely no after school activities. What are you waiting for?
Because Work Can Wait
In today’s world, everyone is expected to be available 24/7. This means emails on, phone on, and having to jump into a meeting, no matter when or where. We are not sure when this happened, but this stressful, never-ending work day can be put on hold.
Not only is a vacation physically needed, but mentally as well. There is always someone who can step in to help, and the world can wait for you to get some sun, relax, and reboot your creative mind while on your best summer vacation yet.
Summer Activities are the Best
As you grow up, one of the things that are always remembered are summer vacations. Either with family or friends, there is always some sort of activity and day that you think back on. Some of our favorite summer activities include building sandcastles, bike rides, and late summer nights.
The beach is a great summer activity for the whole family. You can play a game of flag football, build a sandcastle bigger than your house, or grab a book and sit the entire time. Any of these deserve to be done! A family bike ride is also a beloved summer activity. You can ride to the beach, the shops in town, to dinner, or just feel the salty outdoors – just make sure to check the weather.
Late summer nights are also thoroughly enjoyed by all. You can bring the kids to local live entertainment where they can sing and dance, or get a babysitter for a date night out.
You Have Something to Look Forward to
There really isn’t anything better than thinking of that warm, summer air while at home during the winter. Not only the winter months, but the school days can seem to drag on forever, so booking a summer vacation can give you something to keep you going.
For the Family Time
Life goes by so quickly, and nothing makes you realize this like a family photo at the beach. A summer vacation at your favorite spot, or a new vacation spot altogether, allows you to make those memories that you will remember. Allow you and your family to enjoy those moments, splurge on some ice cream, and see the smiles that only the beach can bring out.
You don’t want to look back to your summers and realize no one had a day off. To look back and say, “Those baseball camps really took up our time,” or “I really needed to work all of those hours.” You want to look back and reflect on all the memories that your summer vacation made. Life is too short not to!
A summer vacation is like a reset button, allowing whoever needs a break to take one. It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you come from, when you hear summer vacation, we all get that burst of excitement. Whether it’s the next school year or your 9-5 job, a vacation will give you the energy to get back and appreciate what you have. So, find your vacation spot, book the condo, and get ready to have a week off from whatever life is throwing at you!
