3 Naturally Beautiful Summer Vacation Destinations

3 Naturally Beautiful Summer Vacation DestinationsMay is almost here, but it’s not too late to plan a great summer getaway! Here are three destinations that are sure to captivate you with their natural beauty---and if you're not the “outdoorsy” type, no worries, there are plenty of other things to do. If you plan on traveling to one of these breathtaking spots, you’ll probably want to make your hotel reservations sooner rather than later, as these areas thrive on summer tourism (for good reason)! Looking for a place to take the kids? All three of these destinations are family-friendly as well.

Alaska
Take advantage of extended summer daylight hours to explore Alaska’s stunning landscape. From majestic glaciers to dense forests to captivating rivers, there are plenty of natural attractions to enjoy. Denali National Park and Preserve is one of the most beautiful (and educational) places I’ve ever visited--- you can see and learn about animals in their natural habitat, go on a variety of hiking trails, or experience an exhilarating white water rafting trip! Fly into Anchorage and take sometime to explore this fascinating city’s cultural institutions and excellent restaurants (if you like fresh fish, you’ll be in heaven).

Vancouver, British Columbia
One of the most gorgeous places I’ve ever hiked was outside of Vancouver in Cypress Provincial Park. The truth is, there are many lovely places to take a day hike near this wonderful city, and some of the most rewarding views are those of the Pacific Ocean. After you’ve taken off your hiking boots, head into the city to enjoy world-class art museums, restaurants, and a great independent shopping scene.

Lake Superior’s North Shore
Located in northern Minnesota, Lake Superior’s North Shore has plenty to offer outdoorsy types and those who simply appreciate a great view. From kayaking to hiking to surfing (yes, really!), there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. The North Shore is also home to charming shops, first-rate resorts and excellent restaurants overlooking the expansive Gitchi Gummi (the Ojibwe name for Lake Superior).
