Summer is here and it is time for that summer vacation. Many travelers
don't venture too fare from their backyard, in fact the most popular
states visited in the US are Florida, California and New York. Some
travelers however do with to explore farther away for their summer
vacations. Depending on if you are one of these travelers, and if you
are looking for a romantic holiday, family getaway or just looking to
beat the heat in a new local, here are some summer vacation
destinations to consider:
Looking for somewhere really romantic? Prague is one of the world's
most beautiful and historic cities. Indulge in castles and cobblestone
streets. The weather is warm but not overbearing. Be warned however,
many other Europeans travel to Prague in August and it can be very
busy. Visit some of the neighboring towns and villages which also have
a lot to offer to get away from the crowds. The prices are usually
relatively cheap and there are still may historic sites to explore.
Many Parisians take their summer holidays in August and leave the
city. This leaves the tourists with room to play! The popular areas are
less crowded and some hotels offer great rates for this time of the
year. The weather is comfortable and the wine always flows. In fact, if
you want to experience Paris as a local, buy a bottle of wine, some
bread and cheese and enjoy in a local park. Another must do, the Eiffel
tower and the Louvre Museum are not to be missed.
From exciting cities to nature at its best, Ontario has it all.
Visitors flock to Toronto, Niagara Falls and Ottawa and everywhere
in-between. There are water parks, amusement parks, museums, gourmet
restaurants, campgrounds, theatres, golf courses, beaches, spas, hiking
trails, white water rafting...you get the picture. Go for a romantic
vacation or a family holiday, you will not have a shortage of things to
see and do.
Cool prices and hot beaches, why not! Considered to be low season
for this area, there are many deals to be had. The hotels are quiet,
prices are great and the Caribbean is a good choice for a summer
vacation if you like it hot. If you are concerned about hurricane
season disrupting your plans, Aruba, Curacao and the Barbados are all
located below the hurricane belt and as a result, are considered less
likely to be affected.
Wherever your summer vacation takes you, do not forget to bring the sunscreen and your sense of adventure.
