Ah, the hot summer months. When temperatures rise and those chilly winter days feel like a distant memory, you’ll want to take full advantage of the warm weather and long daylight hours by getting out of the house (if you can leave your A/C) and enjoying it sometime in the sun.
Which begs the question: where should you go?
Whether you’re looking for a quick weekend trip or are planning a more elaborate excursion across state lines or even international borders, we’ve got some amazing suggestions for you to consider which might also be your bucket list ideas.
Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates, a country that has come a long way since its formation in 1971. It was initially known as “little Britain” because of its British heritage but today it is one of the most forward-thinking cities in the Middle East with beautiful architecture and world-class infrastructure.
Abu Dhabi has many different things to offer tourists, from water activities to camel safaris, from shopping malls to hotels with amazing views over Downtown Abu Dhabi or Grand Mosque.
The city also has an amazing nightlife scene with plenty of bars and restaurants offering live music every night. If you like to eat out, then you won’t be disappointed either as there are plenty of great restaurants serving delicious food from all around the world including some amazing Indian cuisine!
Lonely Beach, Krabi, Thailand
Lonely Beach is the perfect place to spend your time if you are looking for an isolated spot that still has plenty of activities to do.
The beach is really beautiful, but it is also surrounded by lush forests and lovely mountain ranges. There are many hiking trails in the area, so it would be a shame not to take advantage of them while you’re there!
Lonely Beach has been featured in films like The Beach and The Hangover II, which shows just how popular this location has become over the years. However, Lonely Beach remains fairly untouched by mass tourism and retains its tranquil atmosphere – one that can be enjoyed by both couples and families alike!
Due to its tropical climate, beachgoers and sun-worshipers travel to Seychelles all year round. Rarely does the temperature fall below 24°C (75.2°F) or climb over 32°C (89.6°F). Although there are no traditional seasons in Seychelles, the weather does change according to the dominant trade winds.
Your vacation may start tense due to the trouble and inconvenience of applying for visas. Fortunately, visitors to Seychelles do not need a visa.
The magnificent, pristine beaches of Seychelles are well known. Even though all beaches in Seychelles are open to the public, they are generally simple to access and stay rather uncrowded.
Fisherman Cove Resort is one of the Best resorts in Seychelles. You can enjoy mouthwatering flavors and aromas at restaurants and bars while drinking exotic drinks and enjoying the most breathtaking sunsets over the Indian Ocean.
Beyond only stunning beaches, Seychelles has a lot to offer. You are never far from breathtaking natural scenery and unusual wildlife because more than half of the Seychelles territory is made up of designated national parks and marine reserves.
It is no surprise that Greece is a popular destination in July and that many people are daydreaming of a vacation in the Greek Islands given the average daily temperature of 25°C and the infrequent rainfall. With its blue-domed churches, Santorini has seized the spotlight in recent years. While Eros Beach is a remote area noted for the cliffs that drop precipitously into its dark volcanic sand and pebbly coastline, White Beach on the island’s southern edge has a tranquil cove that is ideal for swimming.
The island can almost become overly crowded though, so try one of the many equally stunning but less well-known islands instead.
With its peaceful villages and serene beaches, Kythira has a real atmosphere. The serene island of Skyros is home to some of Greece’s most stunning beaches and a spectacular main settlement of white cube-shaped homes.
To avoid the heat, start your journey later in the day through the 16 km Samaria Gorge in Samaria National Park on the island of Crete. You can also cool down underground in the Catacombs of Milos on the island of Milos.
There is an island out there for you, whatever your passion. Or discover the attractions of the mainland, such as the stunningly situated monasteries of Meteora, the Peloponnese peninsula’s historic sites and picturesque landscape, or the Pindos Mountains with their bears and wolves.
Antigua, Guatemala is a beautiful city with a lot of history. It is also the perfect place to visit in July because it is warm and sunny! You can go there with your family or friends, or even your significant other. There are many things you can do while you are there: hiking through the volcanoes, swimming in Lake Atitlán, exploring ruins by yourself/with friends/with family members/with someone who is not related to you by blood but has been accepted into the family as one of their own (because they have been living with them for years), visiting museums at night when the crowds are gone…the list goes on.
The Cotswolds, England
The Cotswolds is a beautiful place to visit in July. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with rolling hills and lush green fields.
There are lots of places to stay in the area: hotels, bed and breakfasts, and self-catering cottages where you can relax after a long day sightseeing or hiking; there are also golf courses if you like playing games outdoors.
If you are looking for culture and history—or maybe just good food and drink—the towns in The Cotswolds have plenty on offer as well as some excellent shops for shopping!
San Juan Island, Washington
San Juan Island is one of the best places to visit during July. It is an island located in Washington State, part of the San Juan Islands archipelago (which is itself part of Washington State), and it is also part of the United States—in other words, it is a pretty important place!
You should go there for several reasons:
- Because its name starts with “San,” which means that you will be able to practice your Spanish while you’re there.
- Because it has lots of beaches.
- Because there are no sharks on this island (unlike many other islands).
- Because it will allow you to see how beautiful Alaska looks from afar.
Hwy 1, California
The Pacific Coast Highway (Hwy 1) is a must-drive road trip. The California Hwy 1 stretches from the Mexican border at San Diego to Leggett, CA and is one of the most scenic drives in the world.
The views are breathtaking and there are so many things to do along this route.
If you love nature, hiking, or biking then this drive will take your breath away when you see crashing waves on one side of the road and majestic trees on the other side!
A few stops I recommend are Big Sur Station Restaurant (for breakfast), Nepenthe Restaurant (for lunch), Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park (to hike up a waterfall) & Bixby Bridge (to walk across).
