Last summer I had the bright idea to head south in late July. I’m not going to say it was a horrible idea because, honestly, we had a fabulous week. But- it was a tad hot- even for me. If 100% of our plans included a pool or the ocean, it would have been the perfect vacation. Instead, we spent several days at theme parks and doing some non-water outdoor activities.
Please don’t get me wrong- I’m NEVER going to turn down a vacation. If I get the opportunity to head south again this July- I’m in. But, I will admit there are some places that are absolutely the BEST places to go in the summer months! Weather, of course, plays a large roll in making these places ideal summer spots. More than that, though, the charm and landscape in these areas come alive in June, July and August.
Here are my 5 picks for the best places to visit:
- Upper Peninsula, Michigan
- Kennebunkport, Maine
- Glacier Park, Montana
- Anywhere In Alaska
- Boston, Massachusetts
Where would you like to go this summer?
