Summer Vacations

With or without school aged-children, people do most of their traveling over summer. Peak season is just about everywhere, and prices will be higher and crowds somehow more crowded. But you’ll also experience landscapes, communities, and events in ways you can’t any other time of the year, from North Carolina’s balmy Outer Banks to Maine’s summer food festivals. Whether you’re looking to go north to beat the heat, or south to soak up the sun, Travel + Leisure has you covered (metaphorically—you will still need to wear sunscreen) as you plan your perfect summer vacation.
