Now, a very biased opinion from my very personal viewpoint.
I wouldn't consider going for a holiday, however near or far the vacation destination, as a good reason to break the fast. The way I understand it, it's allowed for people who are musafir to break the fast because traveling conditions in the olden days are not as comfortable as they are today. Imagine fasting and traveling across seemingly endless miles of hot and dry desert in the heat of the day. Surely this is a far cry from the way we travel today, in the comfort of air-conditioned vehicles and not having to lift a finger to get from point A to point B.
In the final analysis, it's all up to you. What is more important? Having a good time during a summer holiday? Or having a good time in akhirah because you have fulfilled your duties in dunya, which includes fasting in the month of Ramadan? Your choice. You are the one who has to answer for your actions in akhirah. Not me.
