Don’t feel like planning every detail of a trip?

Want to experience an island getaway without hopping on an airplane?
Head to Kent Island, where you can dance at a tiki bar, get a tan on the beach, and eat unforgettable seafood.
Not a beach person?

Can’t get away for long?
Summer getaways look different for everyone. You might not have weeks of vacation time to use towards extended trips. Plan day trips to visit waterfalls, swimming holes, and playgrounds with water features.
