NEW YORK ( MainStreet) -- There are people who can't stop crowing about how much they love the heat and wish it could be summer all year long. Then there are the people who want to strangle them.As summer vacation season nears its midpoint, there's a certain segment of the population that would rather not sweat it out with the rest of the sun-soaked masses on the nation's beaches and boardwalk. This falls just short of blasphemy among the 86% of Americans who told Expedia (EXPE) travel site TripAdvisor that they planned on traveling this summer. Of that number, 40% say they'll be spending their summer by the ocean, another 16% will be hanging out by a lake and 50% will strap on the tourist socks and sandals and go sauntering through the nation's cities.
