17 Things Every Adult Secretly Wants to do on Vacation ...

I do believe I took vacations for granted as a kid. It was just a given that my little family of three would go away somewhere in the summer. It wasn't always glamorous – camping at a nearby lake was a favorite – but there were also summers when, after saving up all year long, my parents took me to amusement parks, Virginia Beach, Myrtle Beach, Pigeon Forge, Lancaster County, the New England coast … and I loved those vacations. As I got older and moved out on my own, however, I quickly realized that vacations are expensive, getting time off work is impossible, and I missed some of the carefree activities I enjoyed as a kid. Secretly, I think every adult wants to do certain things on vacation – the things they did when they were little, sure, and a few other things that sort of epitomize the freedom they used to enjoy.
