2. Go to an Amusement Park

Amusement parks themselves make amazing vacations. I know standing in line is awful, but if you time it right, you won't have to suffer from the lines or the heat. It's fun to go to an amusement park maybe three or four hours before it closes down. The lines are shorter, the weather is cooling down, and let me tell you, there's nothing like riding a roller coaster as dark comes down. That's trippy!
