“Pack up all your cares and woe,” says an old song. Those of us who have the time and money like to go out of town once in a while in order to leave our worries behind.   When we go on vacation, we have to decide the best place to go.   Some people prefer a vacation at a beach while others prefer to vacation in a city.   Both places give us good opportunities to get away from everything, but there are many differences in the kinds of activities, the clothing required and the pace of life.

Another difference between vacationing on the beach or in a city is the clothing and equipment we need to take. If we decide to go to the beach, we will have to take a bathing suit, shorts and sandals.   We’ll also need sunglasses, goggles, and sun block.   One carry-on bag was all I needed for my trip to Costa Rica.   If we are going to the city, we won’t need any special equipment like goggles.   We will, however, probably walk a lot, so we will need comfortable and casual clothing such as jeans and sneakers. We may also have to take fancy clothes...
