  • S-T-A-Y-C-A-T-I-O-N: Summer is here and so is the fun

    • email print
  • How do you spell summer fun? S-T-A-Y-C-A-T-I-O-N. It is the vacation you want to take, but can’t because, well, the funds just aren’t there this year.
    We hear you. We know it has been a tough year financially for many. But having a good time doesn’t mean you must travel far from home.
    Want to go to the beach? We have beaches right here in Stark County.
    Take a cruise? We can’t put you on a Caribbean cruise or some exotic locale, but there are plenty of lakes and rivers where you can either rent a boat or provide your own and take off on the high seas, err, whatever the body of water.
    Enjoy hiking? Ohio’s State Parks offer plenty of trails to explore, and it won’t cost you a dime. And, if your pleasure is camping, we will tell you where to go to do that.
    If you are planning a vacation this summer, make it a staycation. Northeast Ohio offers a plethora of activities for all ages whether you want to spend a day, weekend, week or a month exploring what you enjoy. It is totally up to you.
