Description

This reel's footage includes a succession of short scenes that mostly show people of various ages on vacation:

A large group gather for miniature golf and an elaborate picnic deep in a wooded area, beside a wood cabin. Families drive to and from vacation areas near rivers and lakes, children in tow. People feed and play with chickens on small farms. A couple visit the United States Capitol building in Washington, D.C.; the camera lingers on ships and ferries.

Toward the end, a man dressed in a suit walks along a dirt path, and two women pack luggage into a Ford Model A car before driving into the distance.
