Summer Vacation Resources

It's February, it's cold, and it just keeps snowing. But, somehow, everyone in California is already wearing summer clothing and every store already has their Spring lines out. You want summer, I want summer.

So let's start planning.

It might seem a little early but now is actually the best time to beat the rush to the prime selection of houses and prices available around Boston. I'd also like to point out that planning ahead of time shows maturity, something you always want to stress when renting a from an owner or realtor (hide the cooler filled with alcohol and all your mini dresses till after they've given you the keys and left the property). It also allows you the time to save up in order to go all out.

Being situated on the best coast we are granted with numerous vacation options within 2 hours from Boston. For weekend or week long trips beyond Southie Beach or the North End Pool (more to come on this later) I suggest the Cape, Martha's Vineyard, or Nantucket.

Here are some useful links to help get your vaca started:
