"Hot summer streets and the pavements are burning" ...

Are you feeling a little bored, perhaps a tad lazy or simply in need of something new during these long hot days of the sizzling summer. The way to get around that general malaise brought on by the dog days of summer, without too much bother—and with a lot of fun in the mix—is to book a vacation somewhere exciting.

The Breakers, Palm Beach
It's hard to imagine a hotel spending $250 million over the course of ten years in renovations, but that's exactly what The Breakers did. The hotel sits in a prime spot in Palm Beach, as it deserves: it has a rich heritage and has been the temporary home to some great stars and notable personalities. The Breakers' tasty cuisine at on-site restaurants provides you with enough fuel to soak up the sun's rays and the warm breeze on a loungechair. That's the life.

The Lodge at Woodloch
This spa destination is considered Pennsylvania's finest, and The Lodge also offers suggestions to those who want to make their resort stay even more memorable. There are plenty of exercise classes and solo activities to enjoy, and if you just want to hit 18 holes, then the Woodloch Springs Country Club is only minutes away. Exclusive Complimentary Perks add to the deal and make it an even smarter booking.

Skamania Lodge
Haven't heard of Skamania Lodge before? That's okay, you'll get to know it well when you stroll through the hallowed halls of their rustic lodge and check out the number of waterfalls nearby—70, to be exact. Multnomah Falls, located near Skamania Lodge, is actually the fifth highest waterfall in the United States, measuring 620 feet. After you're done taking pictures, head to the dry sauna, play 18-hole golf, and hike on their trails.

Spring Creek Ranch
Love to commune with flora and fauna? You won't get any closer than at Spring Creek Ranch, which is located on a wildlife refuge. With several luxe levels of accommodations, Spring Creek Ranch gives you a taste of cowboy country without forcing you to rough it.

WaterColor Inn and Resort
This popular beach resort has received Diamond AAA ratings and has also received numerous top-notch ratings in travel magazines and more. Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, this hotel will soon show you exactly why it's called the WaterColor Inn and Resort: sunsets over the water are a dappled dream. Get an old-fashioned dish in their restaurant for some true relaxation.

These getaways are just the beginning of a late summer/early fall vacation extravaganza. No matter where you choose to go, you'll find that you won't just come back refreshed, but filled with a new light and a lot of optimism about life, sports, and the wilderness.
