Summer is finally here! While many of us may picture ourselves jetting off to a tropical island to do nothing but enjoy cocktails while bathing in a secluded beach… the truth is that, unfortunately, due to a lack of money and time, some of us will have to save our dreams for later and spend the summer in the city.

We know you’ve been waiting for that trip to the beach, to that country you’ve never visited before, or to the place with fresh, clean air. But you also probably don’t want to come back broke.
