Top 10 Summer Getaways


Visitors: 133

London, England : London is definitely one of the best summer vacation destinations, but it is also not the cheapest. Though London is one of the most expensive cities in the World, if you can afford to vacation there then maybe you should consider doing so. And unlike France where you can sample some of the World's best cuisine, London is not famous for fine food. And neither is vacationing there cheap. But if you are a history buff, then London is one of the best vacation destinations you can ever visit.

Russia : Known for its cold and frigid winters, summer is possibly the best time of the year to visit this beautiful land, once home to the Tsars. And Russia is one of the most fascinating countries on the planet that has a lot to offer to any type of visitor - from fun loving college teenagers to serious history professors.

Capri : Your first impressions of this island may be way off the ground reality. While many travelers to Capri, Italy may be somewhat put off by all the glitz and commercialism, if you only care to look deeper and get to know what the island is really about, then you may start to get to like Capri a lot. If you are looking for a place filled with romance where you can have a very special time with your significant other, then Capri is one place you might not want to miss.

Alaska : While Alaska with her imposing snow covered mountains and glaciers may be at her majestic best in the winter, going to Alaska in summer may be a very delightfully pleasant experience. Coastal areas in particular may be very agreeable as the summers are relatively mild there compared to inland areas where the temperatures may reach the 90's.

Greek Islands : Greece has had a very big impact on the Western Civilization and in case you plan to visit the Greek Islands, then you might want to set aside a few days just to tour the fabulous historic sites that are so numerous. But history is not all that Greece has to offer. Blessed with spectacular natural beauty, endless beaches, crystal clear waters, lush vegetation, abundant sunshine and a vibrant nightlife, the beauty of the Greek Islands can charm even the hardest to please tourist.

New England : If you have lived in a city all your life and long to experience the pleasant charms a picture perfect village has to offer, then you might want to consider taking a summer vacation to New England. Pretty villages, beautiful beaches, picture perfect sunrises . . . the quaint rustic charm of New England is something you will want to experience at least once.

Wind River Range, Wyo : Ask any outdoors enthusiast who has been to the Rocky Mountains which is the prettiest range in all of Rocky Mountains, and the most possible answer would be the Wind River Range. The Wind River Range makes up of much of the 2.5 million acre Shoshone National Forest in Wyoming. Thousands of miles of hiking and biking trails, snowmobiling, horseback riding, snowshoeing, skiing and more - all in pristine and very beautiful surroundings make this almost irresistible to first timers and the professionals alike.

Iceland : If you are an outdoor enthusiast who loves sparsely populated vast open spaces with lots and lots of peace and quiet, then Iceland may be one place you may not want to miss going to. Contrary to what most people may believe, a large part of Iceland is not covered with snow and ice and but very colorful flowers. And the weather in Iceland can be surprisingly pleasant and agreeable too. Bubbling mud flats, Lava fields, volcanic craters, crystal clear blue lakes, abundant bird life, hot springs, waterfalls and more make an Iceland vacation an experience like no other.

Scandinavia and Northern Europe : While Scandinavia can be literally freezing in winter, it can be very pleasant and inviting in the summer. Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and Finland make up Scandinavia and each of these countries has some very unique attractions to offer to even the most discerning vacationer. While you do not necessarily have to be an outdoors enthusiast to enjoy all that Scandinavia has to offer, it does help if you are one though. While Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki are full of lively and interesting people and sights, the natural beauty of the region - the fjords, glaciers, mountains and valleys are mainly in the more remote areas and you would not want to miss them.

Calgary, Canada : Located less than an hour's drive from the awe-inspiring Canadian Rockies, Calgary is a modern city set amidst rolling hills and pristine natural surroundings. Its moderate climate and sunny skies make Calgary an year round tourist destination. It is certainly one of Canada's foremost tourist destinations and not surprisingly, an estimated five million visitors flock to the place every year to experience Calgary's delights.
