unsure about summer vacation

Crazy, isn't it? But we still haven't decided where we want to go to get out of the 'burg this summer. And we seem to be among the few. Our street is like a ghost town right now with all the people gone on vacation.
But we're stuck.
Do we do the free-lodging family trek through Indianapolis relatives to Minnesota? Do we find a cozy cabin on Peaks Island in Casco Bay, Maine and eat lobsters and blueberries till we can't stand it anymore? Do we visit friends in Alabama at their lake cabin? Or...

Perhaps we should open the blog up for suggestions. I would say the three main criteria are
  1. there must be a body of water involved, salt or fresh doesn't matter.

  2. can't be expensive. Don't send us to the Greenbrier.

  3. fun stuff for the kiddies = fun time for the parents
So what do you think? Let's hear about the best places you've gone with your family. We are not beyond showing up at a rental agency and offering half the week's rent so they at least have somebody in the property (an old Outer Banks tactic).
In looking around on the web I found this fun fill-in-where-you've-been map, and did one for me for the USA and the world. Ta-da!
