Best Summer Travel Destinations
Summer is the most popular season for traveling, and with so many different options it’s not hard to see why. Summer is the time of year when you’ll find good weather just about anywhere you go, but remember – just because you may be experiencing tropical conditions in your own backyard doesn’t mean you can’t visit a new tropical destination.
Nothing beats a tropical destination, especially one that is outside of the hurricane corridor and that doesn’t experience the rainy season most other tropical islands do during this time of year. With miles of white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, Aruba is often thought of as the most beautiful of all the Caribbean islands. Don’t worry about it being too hot either; temperatures usually stay in the 70s or 80s.

Cancun, Mexico offers all the same sandy beaches and relaxation that any tropical location will bring you, but it comes with the added benefit of having a ton of history attached to this piece of the Yucatan Peninsula. It’s here that the gateway to the Mayan World, the El Mundo Maya, is located; and you can even walk around ancient Mayan ruins. There are plenty of reasons why Cancun is ranked as the number one international destination year after year.

Nice doesn’t really experience a winter, but the summer months are definitely when you’ll find the ideal weather here and lots of daylight – something not seen in the winter months. It’s also in the summer when Nice best blends its beautiful beaches with its busy hustle and bustle city lifestyle, giving you the best of both worlds. You can still have that secluded beach vacation, but still while going to local markets and designer boutiques, and experiencing a great nightlife!

If you’re thinking of visiting France, there are lots of options and Paris is always one of the most popular. Summer is an especially great time to visit here as baristas throw open their doors to set up their patios, and you can spend an entire afternoon just people-watching. When it’s time to get up and about, you can visit the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame de Paris, or the Champs-Elysees.

Whether you want to take in a Mariners game, or just visit the birthplace of Starbucks, Seattle is a great place to visit and summer is a great time to do it. The rain has mostly left for the next few months, and there’s so much to see and do! The Space Needle is an obvious choice, especially for those who have never been to the city, and a visit to Pike Place Market will give you a chance to visit the very first Starbucks. Of course, the Seattle Aquarium and the Seattle Art Museum are also both reasons why tourists flock here every summer.
