America is getting hotter by the day. No matter what part of the country you call home or where you plan to visit, July and August are typically the most scorching months. And while you won’t be able to beat the heat entirely, there are some place you can go where it’s much easier to embrace it. Specifically, you can head to the water.
The Windy City. Chi-town. City by the Lake. Whatever you call it, Chicago is a wonderful vacation destination, especially in the summertime. From the exciting Cubs games to the vibrant arts scene and the amazing Italian food, you’ll never run out of things to see and do.
The Fourth of July might be on a Monday this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t travel for the holiday. In fact, we think a Monday Independence Day is a wonderful excuse for kicking off a week-long vacation. But even if you only manage to get July 4th and 5th off from work, you’ll still have an extra-long weekend you can use for visiting some amazing new places.
June is such a wonderful month. The weather warms up, school wraps up for the summer and wedding season officially begins. This is the perfect time to book a flight, look up car rental deals and explore some new territory. And while there’s not really a bad place in North America to visit in June, these 15 spots are particularly perfect.
There’s no place on Earth quite like New Orleans. With an incredible history, all the debauchery of Vegas with all the family-friendly fun of Disneyland and plenty of things to see and do, this is a destination for everyone.
Summer is the unofficial road trip season. School is out, wedding dates are nearing, and families are getting geared up to travel near and far. And with the sunny weather and long days that lie before us, it’s the perfect time to go somewhere new.
Planning your summer travel? If you’re not locked into locations based on weddings or family reunion obligations, hopefully you have a little destination flexibility. After all, deciding where to go is half the fun.
Sin City. The City of Lights. Glitter Gulch. Whatever you call Las Vegas, you know that it’s a dazzling mecca of entertainment, fine dining, gambling and all-out debauchery. The best thing about Las Vegas is that there’s truly something for everyone—even if you’re not into gambling, there are shows, exhibits and plenty of other attractions to keep you occupied.
As we approach another beautiful summer in North America, people’s thoughts turn to travel. Whether you’ve got children in school or you’re just looking for a nice couple’s getaway or a vacation with your friends, summer is an ideal season to take a trip because of its pleasant weather and long, bright days. And even though it’s definitely the most popular time to go on a trip, events like weddings and class reunions make avoiding it impossible.
