4 Great Vacation Destinations for 2018

As we make our way through February, it’s about time to at least consider where we’re going on our summer vacation. After all, it’s not really winter unless we’re dreaming about what we’re going to do in the summer right?

So today we’re going to start with our favorite destinations around the U.S. As this month goes on we will be picking our favorite destination spots around the world and in each state.

  1. Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone is one of the best places you can go to reconnect with the nature you’ve been missing out on all winter. Yellowstone offers a chance to go hiking, canoeing, kayaking, camping, fishing, horseback riding, and pretty much anything else you can image doing outdoors. The only difference between Yellowstone and the woods by your house is really the sites, the volcanoes, the hot springs, the animals, the geysers, the beautiful open plains, the views, and the history of it all. It might just be us here at ~I, but this could be a trip you never forget. pexels-photo-534398.jpeg

Now if you are planning on going, consider the time of the year. Generally, Yellowstone is most crowded in July and August. If you don’t mind the crowds, this is also the warmest time of year. If you want to go when it’s a little bit less crowded, look into May, September, and October when it might be brisk, but definitely manageable.

Did you know Yellowstone was the world’s first national park?

2. Key West, Florida

Maybe your not the camping and hiking type of person. That’s okay, we have the spot for you! Key West is one of the most beautiful beach destinations you will ever visit. Crystal clear water, a tropical island filled with activities, museums, marine life, nightly entertainment, and sightseeing are all part of the experience down in Key West.

According to U.S News, the best time to visit Key West is between the months of March and May. Temperatures start to climb, but it’s not extremely hot just yet. U.S News also reported on the average monthly temperatures and precipitation. During the months of June, August, and September you will see the highest amount of rainfall while March, April, and May stay relatively calm. You can see the article here from U.S News.

If you’re flying down, look into CheapoAir or Expedia for some great deals.

3. Portland, Maine

Talk about options for a vacation. Visiting Portland opens your vacation plans up to a plethora of opportunities. You can head to the beach, visit lighthouses, explore the islands off the coast like Casco Islands by cruise ship or boat,  take a camping or hiking trip, go fishing (and maybe catch some lobsters), go sightseeing, do all of these indoors, or participate in Portland’s festivals.

So if you can’t make up your mind as to what you want to do, but know you want to take a trip, Portland is one of your best options.

We went back to U.S News for their insight as to when the best time to take your vacation to Portland, Maine. Here is the article, but we’ll break it down for you anyway.

Any time from June through August would be best. The average temperature is at it’s hottest while the average precipitation is near it’s lowest.

Whether it’s raining or sunny, hot or cold, Portland is a great place to be.

4. San Diego, California

You’ve seen it on the movie Anchorman, but have you seen how awesome it is in person? San Diego offers an experience that some people can only dream of. There are six different regions of beaches to explore, dozens of fun water and marine activities, and plenty of sunshine. Don’t forget to check out Seal Beach. Not only are the beaches great, but the city itself has some great activities to try as well. Visit San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, Downtown, North Park, and South Park for even more fun. One night you might find yourself observing the stars through a telescope outside a museum while other nights you will find yourself watching a show at the theater.

Explore outside of San Diego to see some incredible sights like Joshua Tree National Park, Mission Valley, Old Town, and the desert attractions.

Everybody thinks of San Diego Zoo and Sea World, but this city offers much, much more fun than just those two attractions. Not to mention, San Diego is only about 2 hours from beautiful Los Angeles.

We’re not even going to tell you the weather because it’s gorgeous all year round.

In terms of crowds, San Diego sees less tourists during the months of September through November, so if you can hold off on your vacation, it might be a little bit quieter. However, the summer months are still a great time to visit. San Diego has so many things to do and there are so many miles of beaches that you might not even notice the crowds.
