Endless Summer: Some Hot Spots That Are Still Hot
Most of the country is no longer experiencing the heat of summer, but there are places within this country that are still warm, breezy, and beautiful. If you’re missing the sun and need to channel some warm weather, try these vacation spots – there’s one close to you!
Key West, Florida – The sunsets from Key West are second to none, and the laid-back lifestyle will draw you in. Even the drive from Miami is relaxing. Because of the coral reefs certain watersports aren’t available – but restful yet stimulating beach fun is always de rigueur.
Topsail Beach, North Carolina – This area offers a friendly and family-oriented style of beach living, complete with surfing, boating, fishing, and sunset cruising. Recreation in the form of shops and restaurants, a skating rink, and other small-town amusements abound.
San Diego, California – From beach resorts to SeaWorld and Legoland and an incredible zoo, San Diego is always a hot destination. Enjoy amazing vistas, culture, hiking spots, and more along the Pacific coast. For family fun and sun, this is the place!
San Francisco, California – If you enjoy more urban environments, northern California might be your cup of tea. There are plenty of natural wonders here too. Go hiking nearby in Big Sur or Muir Woods, then enjoy some excellent meals and ocean views.
Savannah, Georgia – Steeped in history, Savannah is a beautiful and atmospheric town on the Atlantic, full of southern-style hospitality, cultural touchpoints, and maybe a ghost or two. Tybee Island nearby is a gorgeous spot for visiting the beach.
Hawaii – Pretty much the whole state of Hawaii, consisting of eight main islands, is worth seeing for its natural beauty and sun-drenched beaches. Hike along a volcano on the Big Island, revel in the thriving nightlife of Honolulu, or visit the quieter beaches of Kauai.
South Padre Island, Texas – A popular spring break spot, South Padre Island is an active community where you can enjoy watersports, fishing, spas, and bars and nightclubs. Mild weather and calm waters can be enjoyed all year.
New Orleans, Louisiana – It’s not just for Mardi Gras – New Orleans is a city that embraces its French heritage and its unique southern mystique simultaneously. You can visit a swamp, immerse yourself in the rich history of the region, and enjoy the culture.
Phoenix, Arizona – Arizona has the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, but for a bit of civilization, Phoenix is perfect. With bustling downtown areas, great shopping and golfing, and spring training, it’s a great place to enjoy the warmth anytime of year!
Las Vegas, Nevada – It’s always easy to find your way to Vegas, where blockbuster live shows, great dining, and monumentally scaled casinos appeal to a diverse international audience. Not far way, you can get away from the glitz and glam with Nevada’s natural beauty.
