School is quickly coming to an end as we reach the final marking period for the year. This means we are one step closer to the end of the school year, and even closer to those summer vacations all families love! Many families in Warren County take a vacation every summer to get out of the same old small town we are always stuck in. The Squire did some research and also gathered opinions of various students who take regular vacations when the school year ends. We found some of the best, most common beaches, not too far away, where people have a blast during the summer!
The top pick was Ocean City, Maryland. This beach has a great deal of high school graduates who go to celebrate their freedom from high school each summer. It has a beautiful, calm atmosphere and a great deal of activities that can be done while you’re visiting. Another common beach not too far from Pennsylvania is Bethany Beach, Delaware. Bethany Beach is a great place for extended family getaways. Families contentedly explore the boardwalk and side streets for fun and shopping, gathering for free concerts on weekend evenings, and even movies on the beach. The Squire had the chance to interview Anthony Monde about his annual beach vacation.
