The weather is getting warmer; school is almost finished for the year which means summer vacation is right around the corner. This also means it is about that time to start planning your perfect summer getaway. Whether you are traveling alone or with family and friends, getting a head start on the planning process is a great way to find the ideal destination for the best price.

There are so many great options available that would make the perfect spot for a vacation, and you might have a few in mind. Obviously, you want to be price conscious when choosing the destination of your next vacation, but you also want it to be a place that will be an enjoyable experience regardless of whether you are by yourself or with others. So, here are some of the most popular summer travel destinations.


At first, Amsterdam may not be your top choice for a summer vacation, but this season is actually an ideal time to visit the city. With the gray skies lifted, there are a plethora of festivals, and events abound for tourists to enjoy. One, in particular, is the Open Garden Days which is an event where visitors can take a peek into the private gardens behind the beautiful houses that line along the famous canals. Another popular thing to do is exploring Amsterdam’s thousands of bridges and waterways either by bike or by boat as you search for the perfect brown cafe.

Miami, FL, USA

While Miami is usually the ideal Spring Break destination, it still garners many visitors during its offseason of the summer months. Popular tourists during this time include Europeans and South Americans who are hoping to escape their winters. For those looking to keep cool even in the blazing heat, you can take a dip in the Atlantic, Biscayne Bay or in an infinity pool. You can also spread out on South Beach or partake in people-watching on Lincoln Road. Plus, you will be immensely entertained by the epic nightlife in Miami Beach.

Mackinac Island, MI

While Michigan is mostly known for the Motor City of Detroit, Mackinac Island which is located just twenty minutes by boat from either the Upper or Lower Peninsula of Michigan, comes alive during the summer weekends. It is roughly 4 square miles, and most of it is designated parkland that makes it ideal for hiking and cycling. Make sure you take in the beautiful architecture of its own painted ladies, Victorian cottages that are dated back to just after the Civil War. One thing that makes this spot so unique is that cars were banned more than 100 years ago, so horse-drawn carriages are still being used to get around even today.
