The Best, Last-Minute Summer Destinations
Updated: Aug 4
Summer isn't over yet! There's still time to go on vacation if you know where to go. Here's out list of the best, last-minute summer vacation destinations.
Looking for a location that has something for everyone? Look no further than Disney World! Their 50th Anniversary Celebration is still in full swing. To make sure everyone in your party enjoys their vacation, make a list of your “must do” experiences. Do those things first, and everything else will be the cherry on top. Also ask for input on what amenities are wanted in the hotel and plan accordingly. A great pool for afternoon breaks to beat the heat might be preferred to one with evening campfires.
An Alaskan cruise is a great way to beat the heat if you want to get away from rising temperatures. It is also an outstanding option for multigenerational trips. No matter their age, everyone will love to see glaciers calve or whales breach. You will also have a wide variety of cruise lines from which to choose, ranging from traditional to luxury or even expedition-style cruising. Believe it or not, there are last-minute deals to be had. Just be sure your passport is current.
Cheers to Napa Valley! Self-proclaimed foodies will love the pleasures of eating and drinking which are celebrated here daily. Napa Valley is home to over 150 eating establishments, 357 wineries, and 90 urban tasting rooms to visit. You will find everything from a mouth-watering “hole in the wall” to Michelin Star restaurants. The hardest part will be deciding which of the locations to visit.
Hot Springs, Arkansas, is just what the doctor ordered if you are looking to do nothing but relax. Named for the thermal waters which run in their area, you can visit one of the local bathhouses.
For hundreds of years, doctors prescribed the mineral-rich waters as therapy for their patients. The springs are said to have healing powers that leave their visitors feeling rejuvenated. When you’re finished, there are several golf courses in the area, or you might enjoy one of the hiking trails at Hot Springs National Park.
