Whether it’s hiking, wine, art or beaches, Tripps Travel Network has vacationers covered with these hot spots for summer travel.
The tourism offices of nearly every state and city in the U.S. go into overdrive each summer, touting their location as the best place for vacationers to visit that season. Television and radio commercials, website ads and now even ads on Netflix are all clamoring for the attention of people trying to figure out what to do with their precious time off of work. In an effort to help travelers filter out the noise, Tripps Travel Network has compiled a list of the top three best places to visit this summer.
Isle Royale National Park, Mich.: Off the coast of Michigan on the waters of Lake Superior lies Isle Royale, the state’s largest wilderness area. Tripps Travel Network says this is the ideal vacation spot for travelers looking to literally get away from it all. Of all National Parks in the United States, Isle Royale’s per-acre backcountry use is the highest while the yearly number of visitors is actually less than Yellowstone National Park receives in a day. While vacationers can conduct their own self-guided hikes around the island, park rangers provide guided tours as well, teaching visitors about the local flora and fauna, as well as Isle Royale’s cultural history. Experienced scuba divers can also find excitement exploring the shipwrecks off the coast.
Wilmington, N.C.: A historic Southern city and the Hollywood of the East Coast, Wilmington is North Carolina’s most accessible coastal destination. Besides its three gorgeous island beaches – Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, and Wrightsville Beach – Wilmington has “America’s Best Riverfront,” a place where visitors can stroll along visiting boutiques and cafes during the day and experiencing a vibrant nightlife in the evening. Visitors with Tripps Travel Network can also see Wilmington from the sea while enjoying a leisurely day or evening cruise off the coast, or while learning to surf in the warm Atlantic waters. This beautiful seaside town also features a long list of summer concerts including the Downtown Sundown concert series, the Bellamy Mansion Concert Series and the Airlie Gardens Concert Series.
Santa Barbara, Calif.: From hiking to fine-dining, lazing on the beach to strolling through a museum, Tripps Travel Network says Santa Barbara has something for nearly every traveler. Sometimes referred to as the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains. This picturesque town is steeped in Spanish colonial history as evidenced by its architecture and street names. While here, visitors can check out the world-famous Stearns Wharf, visit the zoological gardens, drive out to wine country, or check out the myriad weekly events Santa Barbara has to offer. This includes the Santa Barbara Arts & Crafts Show every Sunday; the Farmers Market Tuesdays and Saturdays; and the Amazing Scavenger Hunt Adventure every day.
