School’s Out For Summer Grand Rapids

Will Smith did a song called Summertime, it was that song from the 90's that celebrated being out of school for the summer.  Then there was that old song Alice Cooper sang called, School's Out.

Just over half of the respondents in a new TripAdvisor poll say they still work out when they're away from home on a leisure trip. In addition, 65-percent try to maintain healthy eating habits while on the road. However, 81-percent admit they're more likely to veer off their diets while on vacation and 55-percent confess that their alcohol consumption usually goes up.
