Where Should You Head For a Summer Getaway This Year?
Summer matters to Canadians. We know what it feels like to dig our cars out from the snow, and hardly see the sun for six months - so escaping to the sun can be a big part of the annual calendar. The only question is where to go.
Best Destinations for a Summer Getaway
When the weather heats up, the world is your oyster, and you can travel almost anywhere with HometoGo. To help you plan this year's adventure, here are a few suggestions for the best summer destinations.
You don't need to stay in Canada, but if you do, we'd definitely recommend BC's capital. Victoria offers the chance to explore temperate rainforests in nearby Clayoquot Sound, and attend great events like the Great Canadian Beer Festival. Ideal for families.
Flights across the Atlantic aren't too expensive, and summer is the perfect time to head to the UK capital. Whether you want to see the Crown Jewels, dine at Brixton Market, or dance all night long at mega-clubs, London has it all.
Lake Placid, NY
Although it's more famous as a ski resort, Lake Placid in the Adirondacks becomes a superb destination for hikers in summer. Water sports abound, you can walk scenic mountain trails, join bird-watching tours, or just take it easy in a hilltop hideaway.
Another ski city that's a wonderful summer destination, Banff is heaven for golfers who want the very best mid-summer conditions. Courses like Banff Springs, Silvertip, and Stewart Creek are up there with any North American venues
For some travelers, everything revolves around the beach. If this sounds like you, the Pacific nation of Fiji is the best place to head in mid-summer. The pure sands of Nadi are very, very hard to beat, but the Mamanunca Islands come pretty close.
