With summer around the bend it's not too early to start planning your vacation. Visitor information for U.S. destinations is easy-to-come-by. All 50 states plus the District of Columbia offer free vacation planners that include color pictures, maps, calendars of events and sights to see. They list accommodations and campgrounds, too. All but six states have toll-free phone numbers, making it easy and inexpensive to order the booklets.

It will take from two to six weeks to receive the packets, so order now.
