Wondering where to go for the best vacation experience this summer? For many of us, the almost primal urge to travel peaks when summer rolls around, it is the season that has always been directly associated with freedom and vacation. Of course, the ideal trip depends on the type of traveler and the type of experience you seek. Here, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best summer vacation destinations out there, ensuring that you will have the best of fun.


Montreal, Canada is a great choice for travelers looking for a taste of European culture. Fascinating historic sites, hundreds of shopping venues, world-class eateries and a pulsating nightlife scene will keep you busy the entire time.


While everyone else flocks to the beach, head to Munich, Germany for a more off-the-beaten-path summer vacation. Spend your time in the hub of Bavarian culture touring medieval palaces, wandering through art galleries, biking down historic streets and lounging in beer gardens.


From rainforests and waterfalls to freshwater pools, diving, guided reef walks and more, Fiji Island is filled with activities and discovery spots. Fiji also features world famous massage experts, spa treatments, and is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway.

San Juan Islands, Washington

Summer in Washington’s the San Juan Islands is all about the weather, whales and water.


What can be said about Paris that hasn’t already been said? It is the “City of Lights” as well as the “City of Love,” but perhaps, more importantly, “Just a Really Great Place to Take a Vacation Anytime.” Visiting here in the summer does have its cons, primarily in the form of an army of tourists descending on the city. But we feel that the excellent weather more than makes up for it.


For miles of soft, multi-colored beaches and mind-boggling scenery, Maui is the destination of choice. Spend your vacation watching humpback whales, hiking through the lush Haleakala National Park or being pampered at one of the islands many tranquil spas.


If you’re looking to add some glamour to your beach vacation, Mykonos is the place to go. This little island in the Mediterranean is Greece’s party central, where bars, clubs and beach parties thrive until the small hours of the morning.


When it comes to soaking up the sun in the lap of luxury, there’s no better place than the French Riviera. Perched on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Nice makes for a great home base for a Riviera getaway.
