We are now officially into summer! If you are still looking for last minute summer vacations, but are tired of doing the same cookie cutter vacations every year, continue reading below for some fresh ideas to consider!
A CANADIAN ROAD TRIP
Block out two weeks and drive from Montreal to Banff. OK, so it’s a grand total of approximately 40 hours on the road, but break it into chunks over the course of 14 days and it’s worth it, given all the sights you can detour to see (like Ottawa—Canada’s capital city—or Prince Albert National Park in Saskatchewan). Consider taking a luxury train trip through the Canadian Rockies!
A WESTERN DUDE RANCH
Vacation is for fresh air and wide-open spaces, which is why you can’t go wrong with a getaway to Colorado, specifically Grand County (located about an hour west of Denver). The Latigo Ranch will whisk you far away from pesky annoyances like email—although Wi-Fi hot spots are available if you need it—and fix your attention instead on the land around you. Forty thousand acres of prime national forest, to be exact.
A CHARMING SOUTHERN CITY
If you haven’t been to Charleston, summer is the perfect time . It’s the perfect blend of city culture and country charm. Spend your days touring nearby plantations (FYI, Boone Hall, the spot where Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got hitched, is open to the public) and your nights at reputable high-end restaurants like Husk or FIG. You could even detour to Kiawah Island, no more than a 45-minute drive away.
A LAKESIDE ADVENTURE
The ocean isn’t the only option if you’re looking for a family getaway where your kids can splash in the waves. Michigan’s west coast offers gorgeous water views without having to worry about the tides. (FYI, we love South Haven, often referred to as the “Catskills of the Midwest.”) Or, if the east side of the state is more your style, take a ferry to Mackinac Island in the middle of Lake Huron.
A COASTAL ESCAPE
Big Little Lies on the brain? Book a five-day weekend in and around Big Sur. The cliff views of the Pacific Ocean (visible from the Highway 1) alone are worth the trip, but the chance to experience the breathtaking vistas seen on your new favorite HBO show? You can’t go wrong.
