The weather is warming up, and now is the perfect time to start planning your summer vacation. With so many incredible destinations to choose from, it can be challenging to decide where to go. Whether you’re craving a city break, a beach vacation, or a secluded mountain area, there’s something out there for everyone. Here are some of the top vacation destinations to consider for this summer.
Vancouver, BC, Canada
If you’re looking for a destination that combines relaxing nature and urban sophistication, Vancouver is an excellent choice for this summer. The city is very dense and easy to navigate and has plenty of intriguing food, art, shopping, and music to explore. If you want to get into nature, nearby Whistler is an excellent place for hiking or maybe even some summer skiing if there’s enough snow left.
The Peloponnese, Greece
This region in southern Greece is a lovely alternative to Mykonos and Santorini, which can get expensive and overcrowded quickly. Transit options to this region have expanded dramatically in the past year, making it very easy to get there from Athens or other places in Europe. The area is still relatively undeveloped, with beautiful beaches and plenty of small-town Greek charm. Be sure not to miss out on the incredible wine and food in the region.
Berlin has one of the best art scenes in the world, as well as a rich and complex history spanning hundreds of years. All of these things make it the perfect destination for a summer city break. From classical architecture to gritty street art, you can see so much just by wandering. Berlin is also a European travel hub, making it a great home base for a more extended European tour.
Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico
If you want to go wine tasting this summer, skip Napa Valley and head off the beaten path to the Valle de Guadalupe in Mexico. This beautiful wine region in Baja California is not only home to some of Mexico’s best wine, but also some of the country’s most intriguing new restaurant concepts. During the day, you can take a short drive west and relax on the beach.
This beautiful African country is one of the most sparsely populated destinations on Earth, making it a great place to relax and recharge. The landscape consists mainly of beautiful, sparse desert, but it’s also home to some incredible and rare wildlife, like giraffes, rhinos, elephants, jackals, and more. Many of the world’s best safari camps and outback lodges are based here, combining the incredible experience of being out in nature with that of a more luxurious resort.
These are just a few of the unique travel destinations that are gaining momentum this summer. Whether you want to get off the beaten path or explore a cultural hub, there’s something for everyone here. With summer vacation spots filling up fast, be sure to start booking now for access to the best destinations.
