Where would you want to be in your state during the summer on a day off, weekend, or vacation? The ocean beaches, lakes, mountains, resorts, festivals, dining al fresco, beer gardens, rafting rivers, anywhere tied to summer fun. What places in your state do you crave to get away and have fun in the summer?

Myrtle Beach, SC, downtown Greenville, SC for all the festivals, Lake Keowee and the waterfalls.

Oregon pretty much provides endless opportunities. Hiking in the mountains, swimming in lakes fed by glacial runoff, backpacking along the Pacific Crest Trail, camping in the forests, hunting, fishing, boating, mountain biking, etc.

The coast is also just beautiful to be at, although the water is a little too cold to swim in

Denver: The amusements of the "big city", Elitch Gardens amusement park, the Rockies (baseball), the Rapids (soccer), the zoo, the many museums.

Boulder: Pearl St. Mall (dining, shopping, sightseeing), hiking, biking.

Colorado Springs: various tourist attractions, e.g. Garden of the Gods, Pike's Peak.

South Dakota - the Black Hills. Camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, scenic drives...I love it!!! If you want festivals, shopping, restaurants, etc the surrounding towns are fun little places.

Wisconsin:

Northwoods - pick a lake, there are over 10,000 of them
Driftless - pick a river (Wisconsin River's 100 miles of sand or Kickapoo or Mississippi)
Great Lakes (Apostle Islands/Bayfield on Superior or anywhere, preferably Door County I guess, on Lake Michigan)
Milwaukee - the city of festivals (every week all summer), including the world's largest music festival (Summerfest)

Colorado: heck anywhere is fun for me there, but it is prime time climbing season there so I will be more than likely waking up in the early mornings to bag some peaks

Texas: Summer is tragic here. Summer and fun rarely can go together for me in Texas. But I would pick floating the river and going to Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels the most fun I have in the summer in Texas.
