After a bit of review we’ve concluded from various sources that the top 10 destination spots (both inside the US border as well as out of it) for summer vacations are:
#1: Cancun, Mexico – It’s affordable, easy to get to and you’re bound to soak up the summer rays while sticking your feet in the warm beach sand.
#2: Puerto Rico – If you have a passport on hand and spending money so you’re able to splurge, Puerto Rico is a great destination. Sitting a little farther south of our US borders, Puerto Rico offers hiking, zip lining with monkeys, beach time and various other activities to satisfy your urge to travel.
#3: Cape Cod, Massachusetts – For you east coast students, Cape Cod is one of the top destinations to visit in between semesters or during the Summer. It’s known for it’s hot beaches, cool water and whale watching spectacles off of Race Point Beach.
#4: Portland, Oregon – Also known as the city of Roses, this is a place where you can indulge in the arts and enjoy scenic options. The city is known for it’s fine food, beautiful landscapes and down to earth atmosphere that leaves most travelers feeling refreshed and reconnected.
#5: Daytona, Florida – Another east coast summer destination favorite. This is a great place to check out – especially if you’re all about the cars. Capital of the NASCAR scene, Daytona makes an excellent and bargain-friendly retreat.
#6: Thailand – It’s not your first time around the race track if you’re making your way to East Asia. Thailand is by far one of the more popular destinations, with it’s rich resources, friendly natives and inexpensive accommodations. Making the 10+ hour flight (depending on where you’re flying from) is well worth it.
#10: Gold Coast, Queensland Australia – Although our American summer is Australia’s winter, the Gold Coast stays fairly warm throughout the year. It can also be a plus, considering the beaches will be pretty bare due to the alternative vacationing seasons. Traveling on a budget down under? The good news is – their hostels are extremely clean and the food is great! Nothing like shrimp on the BBQ with great people and an amazing view.
All in all, we here at Dorm Room Movers wish you a very eventful (yet restful!) summer break. All that hard work pays off, so enjoy your summer while you can and don’t forget we’re here to help you ship your stuff back to school should you buy any dorm essentials this summer.
