With Summer right around the corner, it's about time to start planning that Summer vacation. What kind of vacation do you prefer?

When considering vacation ideas, lots of people prefer the stereotypical tropical vacation. You know, find a beach somewhere, get your toes in the sand, splash around in the bay, eat seafood for every meal. And there's nothing wrong with that. Last June, my wife and I traveled to Jamaica for our honeymoon, and spent our time doing the things that I just listed above. It was awesome!

However, some people prefer the more "inland" route when doing their vacation planning. They may choose to go hiking. Perhaps just floating a river somewhere, passing the time doing some freshwater fishing. I must say, I've spent many vacations doing these very activities myself.

And then there are the people that prefer staying closer to home. Maybe just spending the time doing some gardening, laying out in their hammock reading for hours on end, or playing with the dogs that are just like a part of the family. I've actually had a few vacations like these as well.

Now, I want to know: when thinking about vacation, do you fall into one of these categories? If so, which one? Or, do you do something entirely different? Let us know in the comment section below.

Just let us know if you plan to take any ... "awesome" vacation pictures like the one below.
