LYME REGIS, ENGLAND - MAY 25: People sit beside the sea as they enjoy the fine weather on the beach in Lyme Regis on May 25, 2017 in Dorset, England. Parts of the UK are currently enjoying a blast of warm continental air and sunshine which forecasters claim could deliver the hottest May temperatures since the Second World War. With temperatures possibly hitting 30C (86F) on Saturday, it will make it not only the hottest day of the year so far but could even go higher to beat the record-breaking 32.8C (91F) recorded on May 29, 1944..

It’s tempting to pack a million things into your vacation, because you want to make the most of it.  But then you end up exhausted and feel like you never even went on vacation, here is a list of the top things people want to do on vacation.
