What To Take On Your Summer Vacation

This is the time of year when many readers take a vacation. If you are traveling strictly in the U.S., you might be spending quiet time at your beach or country homes, visiting family in other states, taking off to the desert or a resort town, checking out festivals or going on a cross-country road trip.
