Summer break is upon us, which for many of us means warm weather, hanging out at the pool or beach, spending time outdoors, having a cookout with friends and family, and of course, taking a summer vacation or road trip.

We understand the importance of creating lifelong memories with your loved ones, and even though we’d all love a summer getaway, an elaborate vacation isn’t always in the cards. The rising costs of going on vacation are impacting families and individuals more than ever. Vacation costs add up quickly when you start to take into consideration the cost of transportation, lodging, food & drink, entertainment, attraction tickets, and souvenirs, to start. Luckily, there are ways you can plan an affordable summer vacation or enjoy local attractions to stay on budget.

1. Road Trip to the Nearest Beach, Lake, or National Park

Wherever you live, chances are that there’s a beautiful beach, lake or national park within driving distance. So why not make a road trip out of it? First, determine what your final destination will be. From Virginia Beach to the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, the Adirondack Mountains, or anywhere else in between, there’s a trail or shore to explore! As a free bonus, look up some fun places you want to visit along the way. Some ideas could include an amusement park, a cool theater, scenic routes (think Historic Route 66 or Pacific Coast Highway), or other historical landmarks. If you have young children, you can even come up with trivia questions to keep them interested and help them learn about specific landmarks along the way. 


One great thing about taking a road trip is it’s up to you how much money you want to spend, the two biggest expenses being lodging and transportation. You can make it a one-day or a week-long adventure - you choose what’s best!

3. Backyard Camping

3. Backyard Camping

Whether you’re on a strict budget or reliving your youth, backyard camping is one of the easiest summer activities to plan. The best part: you decide how much money you want to spend. From the traditional tent under the stars and smores night to an all-night outdoor extravaganza filled with a fire-cooked meal, outdoor games, constellation watching, and spooky stories by the campfire.  


Delicious camping meals might include summer must-haves like hot dogs or burgers, corn on the cob, and fresh fruit like watermelon and fresh grapes. Swig Life’s Island Breeze Loopi Tote Bag is the perfect tote bag to load up and bring to the backyard with you when you don’t want to keep going in and out of the house for drinks, snacks, and more.  


If you’re planning to make an entire evening out of your backyard camping, then you’ll want to plan some after-dinner activities. If you’re competitive in nature, a potato sack race is always fun. Water balloon fights are also a classic summer staple. As the evening winds down, prep your campfire for smores! 



While your fire is getting nice and hot, you can have a campfire song sing-a-long, tell campfire stories or bring out the telescope or binoculars for some stargazing. You can even take backyard camping to the next level by inviting your neighbors and friends to join in the fun!
