Planning a Joyful Summer Escape

(Family Features) Nearly everyone needs something to look forward to again, and few things can bring more joy than planning the perfect getaway. Many travelers have different ideas in mind when it comes to planning or dreaming about a summer vacation. Some are enchanted by spending time at a beach, others prefer to take in a rich arts or history scene and there are also those who prefer to stay closer to home.

According to polling conducted by Michelle Gielan, founder of the Institute for Applied Positive Research and an expert in the science of happiness, 97% of respondents said having a trip planned makes them happier and 96% agreed getting to travel and feeling safe while doing it would bring peace of mind.
