We're ready to celebrate SUMMER--and that means vacations, cookouts, and maybe a whole new wardrobe. How are you going to fund your summer fun?

You could get a part-time job at an ice cream shop, but who wants sticky hands? You could work as a public pool lifeguard--but then you've got to deal with all those screaming kids. And that sunburn? HARD PASS.

We want to hook you up with a $500 Visa Gift Card to ensure Summer 2022 is the best ever. Use it to fuel up before you head out to the beach, to stock up on steaks before your next cookout, or just go wild and buy like 10 pairs of Lime Green Crocs. We don't judge--it's up to you to put the FUN in our Summer FUNds contest.

So, how do you get in on the fun? Just get social with us. Following the links below earns you entries into this promotion. The more you like, share, follow and subscribe, the more entries you get-- so go wild!

*This is a mult-market promotion. Winner must be 18 years old. One winnner will be selected on Friday, July 1.*

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
