What will our vacations be like in the future? Well, according to this pair of 1958, it should entail a beach club accessed by land, sea and air — as well as a resort accessible using “Aquacars” and “Levitation Mobiles.” I assume the later, referenced in the original caption for the image below, is the flying car? Your guess is as good as mine.
