Summer is officially here and my adventurous side perks up. I love to travel and adventure so I wanted to see what the ever helpful internet had to say about top summer travel destinations. I’m going off of the Travel Channels web article for what they consider to be the best destinations.
10. The Bahamas
8. Catalina Island, CA
7. Mackinac Island, MI
6. Ocean City, MD
4. Virginia Beach, VA
3. Bora Bora
Now that you have seen their list I will give my two cents. Travel is never about the place but rather the experience you have in that place. Anybody can go to Hawaii because a list says that it’s the number one travel destination for summer, but one bad experience and that’s ruined Hawaii for you. The reality is that great travel is about the people you meet, the food you enjoy, and the experiences you have.
I recommend getting out for even a weekend if you can’t adventure to a far off destination like Dubai for a few weeks. I come alive when I travel and the short weekend jaunts up in the mountains are even refreshing. Soaking in some of the wonderful vitamin D, curling up with a good book, finding an amazing restaurant, and meeting perfect strangers.
Everybody refreshes and restores themselves in different ways, but far to often we get so wrapped up in our busy lives that we don’t take the time. Take a step back and let yourself breathe for a moment away from the hustle and bustle. It’s summer! Travel! Go! Do!
