Much like baseball, apple pie, and motorcycles, summer vacation is an American tradition. The kids are out of school and you’ve accrued some paid vacation days over the course of the year. It’s time to relax and see something new, but where should you go? If you’re flying out of the Orlando International Airport this summer, consider these three unique summer destinations:
1. Minneapolis, Minnesota
You might not immediately think of the Midwest as a travel destination, but summer in downtown Minneapolis is absolutely bustling. Enjoy the multitude of arts, music, and cultural festivals featured in the city throughout the summer. If you’re a baseball fan, catch a Minnesota Twins game at Target Field. Minneapolis features 22 city lakes for you to visit and, when you’re done, you can head to the 4.2 million-square-foot Mall of America to do some shopping.
2. The San Juan Islands, Washington
If you’re tired of sweltering heat, but want to relax on a beach, head to the beautiful San Juan Islands in Washington. This gem of the Pacific Northwest offers verdant green forests and waterways that are great for hiking, kayaking, biking, diving, and dining. Stroll through the energetic town of Friday Harbor to enjoy art galleries, live music, and great food.
3. Nassau, Bahamas
Take an international flight to The Bahamas to enjoy your summer vacation in a tropical paradise. Nassau is known for its amazing beaches, turquoise waters, and great diving spots. Go snorkeling and explore coral reefs, caves, blue holes, and even the occasional shipwreck. The nightlife in Nassau features clubs, live shows, casinos, and festivals to keep you entertained late into the night.
