Summer is flying by way too quickly. My son starts school next month and my girls will start shortly after. While we’ve been enjoying our lazy days at the pool and countless backyard barbeques, it would be nice to take a little vacation before summer is over. So I’ve been thinking, what better way than with a classic road trip? Whether it be a secluded camping spot or to a beach retreat, I think my family would have fun getting away even if it’s just for the weekend. And thankfully, with the help of Discover, a road trip doesn’t have to cost a fortune!
