There's nothing wrong with plopping down on your favorite beach. But change is good for the soul (and, if you're smart, not bad for the skin). In New England, a world of water is calling. The ocean, yes, but also lakes, rivers, ponds, even water parks. Enjoy them all this summer, whether you're looking to splash it up, hide out, paddle away, or just drink in a view.
