Even though the economy is supposedly recovering, lots of people I know are still stretched thin. Myself included. We normally would take a vacation somewhere during the summer, but this year it is beyond us. Luckily for us, we live in an area where there is a great deal to do that is free or low-cost and vacation-like.
We may not be traveling anywhere, but a day at the oceanfront can seem like a mini-vacation.
If you are stuck, think about some mini-vacations you can do, right where you are.
