Summer Snaps

Whether road tripping around the country or enjoying the parks and beaches in our own backyard, locals spent the Christmas break soaking up the sun and making the most of the good weather. We asked our readers to share photos of the best parts of their summer holiday with us. Here are some of the snaps we received.
