Summer is here and the time is right for going out and taking a vacation. It doesn’t have to be a week-long extravagant trip to Disney World or New York. Instead, you can have a weekend vacation that stays right near your home and hardly costs you anything. The whole point of a vacation is to relax and have a good time. That doesn’t mean sitting in traffic or having to hurry through an airport trying to make your flight connection. So here’s a few things that you can do over a few days that won’t break your bank (http://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/my-money/2014/08/26/6-ideas-for-an-inexpensive-labor-day-weekend).

Find something local—You may want to try taking a “staycation.” In other words, look for something fun to do that is only about an hour or so away. That way, you can go, have fun, and not have to worry about paying for a hotel room to stay overnight.

Invite the friends over—Who says you have to go away for a fun weekend? Invite your friends over for a backyard cook-out. Make it an all day party and enjoy the summer with those you love.

Head to a state park—Camping is a relatively inexpensive idea for a vacation. By camping at a state park, you not only have a fun place to stay, but also a location with playgrounds for the kids, picnic tables for dinner, and usually some place to swim or fish so you can unwind.

Catch a game—You don’t have to spend a lot of money on Major League Baseball tickets. Instead, head out to a minor league game that won’t cost as much money. In fact, many places have family weekend deals and offer special promotions including fireworks over the summer.
