Whoever said summer fun had to cost an arm and a leg obviously never heard of recession.  With the current downturn of the economy, everyone is looking for inexpensive ways to liven up their summer.  Whether you need a whole weekend, or just a day, taking a vacation this summer doesn't have to be expensive or complicated.  Here are five recession proof ideas to take a mini vacation without emptying your wallet.

Camping
Camping is the perfect weekend getaway for summer and is just about a care free as vacations come.  Many places don't require reservations and are very inexpensive.  All you need is a tent, sleeping bag, and provisions.  Even if you don't own a tent, buying one is still cheaper than the cost spending a weekend in a hotel.  Many newer camp sites also have pools and game rooms for campers to use free of charge giving you even more bang for your buck.  Camping is especially fun if you live in or near a city as it provides a pleasant change of scenery.

Beach
Taking a trip to the beach is everyone idea of summer fun, but it doesn't have to be expensive.  The trick to a cost effective beach vacation is to avoid holidays and peak season.  Many areas raise prices from mid-June to late July so try planning a trip in the off season.  Also, don't feel like you have to go to the popular beaches to have a good time.  They are often over crowded and more expensive.  Look for smaller, less known areas that are more family friendly and offer better rates.  When going to the beach, all you really need is a towel, games and good friends and family.

Hiking
If you don't have time for a weekend getaway, hiking can be a great day trip alternative.  Whether you stay local or decide to drive a little farther out, taking a hike is great way to relieve stress, clear you mind and enjoy the great outdoors.  Depending on how intense of a hiker you are, you may need a compass or heavy duty bag, but anyone can pack and lunch and put on sneakers.  Best of all, you are sure to get amazing pictures once you reach the top!

Picnic
A family picnic is a great and inexpensive way to have a small getaway with your loved ones.  It a lot more fun than having a meal at home and can add excitement to any day.  It give the adults time to relax and the kids time to run and play.  Because picnics only require things you already have at home, a basket full of goodies, a few games, and a blanket, its a perfect all expense paid day trip.

Day at the Lake
Since water and summer go hand in hand, a day at the lake is the perfect one day getaway for anyone.  Whats that? You say you don't live near a lake? A river works just as well and almost everyone lives near some form of water; how else would we survive?  Taking a day to visit you local water hole is the perfect way to relax by the water for a low key getaway.  If you have a boat or have the option to rent one for a day, tubing is a great way to make waves.  Much like a picnic, all you need is lunchArticle Submission, a towel and some friends.
