Limbo Time!! 15 Places You Need To Be At This Summer!!
No I don’t mean the game we played when we were younger, or even now.. do college kids still play limbo.. maybe at theme parties I suppose! What I mean by limbo time is that time after finals when were at home doing nothing but watching re runs of friends in our underwear. It’s that awkward time that some of your friends still aren’t back from school so you just want to sit around and binge watch the latest shows on Netflix and eat everything in your pantry that you didn’t get to have on your Taco Tuesday budget. You start missing your girlfriends and start to have major withdraws so what are you going to do about it? How about you wipe off the cookie crumbs from your shirt, get your computer and your phone, time to take a getaway with your girls! What better way to kick off the summer with some great views and best friends!
We have pulled together some cute and fun rentals from VRBO.com and a couple other vacation sites and selected the top 12 vacation rentals and 3 other types of awesome getaways!
