Where to go on Vacation: 5 Destinations

As another school year draws to a close, it’s time to start looking forward to summer break. If you’re like me, summer break has you thinking about the fun family vacations you’ll get to take with your loved ones. Or, maybe you’re hoping to get away with just your significant other to reconnect on a romantic getaway. Whatever the reason you’re traveling for, you’ll want to end up somewhere unforgettable. If you’re traveling soon, here are some of my favorite vacation destinations.

Where to go on Vacation: 5 Destinations

San Francisco, California

Long-time readers of my blog know that my family and I love San Francisco. I feel like we discover something new to enjoy every time we visit. If you’re an aspiring travel blogger, you’ll love SF, or “The City” as locals call it, because it’s truly one of the most insta-worthy cities in the country.

True crime fans, be sure to take a trip out to Alcatraz Island, where the brave can tour the creepy historical remnants of a prison camp. Also, for my wine-loving moms, the heart of California wine country is just a short drive away. While you’re here, book a wine-tasting tour for yourself and some friends to try some of the best wines produced in the US; recommend California Wine Tours.

Las Vegas, Nevada

If you’re a parent looking to blow off a little steam, this is a perfect place to do it. It’s the gaming and gambling capital of the US, and there’s so much to do each night you might have trouble choosing! Not a big card fan? Check out one of the incredible shows, or eat your fill at any one of the amazing buffets. The best part is that you can always find cheap airfare to Vegas through Booking Buddy, meaning you can live it up without breaking the bank.

Orlando, Florida

If you want to take your kids on an unforgettable vacation, look no further than Orlando, Florida. This one city is home to many of the country’s major theme parks, including Universal Studios Florida and Disney World. If the heat starts to get to you, head to a water park like Discovery Cove and relax as your little ones cool off and have fun at the same time. You could spend two weeks in Orlando and never run out of exciting activities for you and your family.

Santa Barbara, California

I couldn’t pick just one city for this list because California is so gorgeous! You only need to see one picture of Santa Barbara to understand why. If you’re hoping for a trip that balances beauty and relaxation, this little city on the coast of California is your destination. Take in the perfect weather with a jaunt on a local hiking trail or shop (and eat) on State Street downtown. Or enjoy fun in the sun by spending the entire day on the beach. Just make sure to stay safe and pack lots of sunscreens!

Fisher Tower near Moab, Utah

Moab, Utah

Moab, Utah, is a must-visit destination for fans of the great outdoors. Just a few minutes from Arches National Park, Moab is your gateway to some of the country’s most gorgeous red rock formations. If you’re looking for an active adventure, rent an ATV or mountain bike and head off to explore the park. Or, if you want to be even more connected with nature, reserve a spot in any of the many surrounding campgrounds and sleep under the stars. No matter how you explore Moab, it’s sure to be a trip you won’t forget.

A vacation is a great way to connect with your family or reconnect with yourself. There are so many stunning and exciting spots to visit in the US, but these are some of my favorites. Now, plan your trip and have a great time! To extend your vacation duration, especially if you’re a student, consider applying for an OPT or F1 visa to make the most of your time away.
