Top 10 Summer Travel Destinations
Summer has officially begun, which means it’s time to take a break from your busy life – and what better way than to embark on an adventure! Here are the Top 10 Summer Travel Destinations for 2015 – both within Canada and international.
This is a great list of iconic places to visit, that offer much during the summer months. I’d have to agree with Cavendish Beach PEI, as I just returned from a first trip to Prince Edward Island and went there myself.
As well, we live in close proximity to Banff Alberta, so a summer getaway there is definitely in the plans for us.
Have a peek at the list below, which places would you love to visit this summer? Would you have to fly or is it within driving distance?
Top 10 Summer Travel Destinations:
- Whistler, BC – Sure, the city is known for its majestic slopes, but without the snow you’re looking at a beautiful backdrop for outdoor adventures with an unforgettable view.
- Toronto, ON – There’s nothing like getting your family’s adrenaline pumping by climbing up the CN Tower and leaning off the edge of a 553 meter high skyscraper!
- Cavendish Beach, PEI – Red sandstone cliffs with crystal blue water surrounds you at the Cavendish Beach. While you’re there, explore historic sites, like the Green Gables Heritage Place.
- Banff, AB – If you’re craving a breathtaking view – this place is for you! No need to go halfway across the world to become mesmerized by natural beauty. Kayak between the Rocky Mountains or simply take it all in.
- Quebec City, QC – Here you’ll find hints of European charm mixed with authentic French Canadian character. Grab a poutine and walk around the old city, home to iconic Chateau Frontenac. If your legs start to give in, hop on a horse-drawn carriage along the cobblestone streets.
- Grand Canyon, U.S.A. – One of the wonders of the world! It’s worth getting on a helicopter to soak in a truly life-changing experience.
- Sesimbra, Portugal – This beautiful little fishing port is filled with colourful and authentic charm, known for its beaches, local cafes and fish restaurants. If delving into culture is what you’re looking for, this is it.
- Kefalonia, Greece– Take a boat ride and you’ll be surrounded by picturesque villages, olive groves, beaches and tremendous mountains.
- Hong Kong, China – A bustling and exciting harbour city, you’d be surprised how easy it is for tourists to explore. There are lots of kid-friendly activities, such as Hong Kong Disneyland and Ocean Park.
- Siem Reap, Cambodia – A trip for the adventurous: the city showcases original ancient temples, including the Angkor Archaeological Park, cited as one of the most valuable archaeological sites in South-East Asia – so you know it’s worth getting over the jet lag for!
The options are endless – both nationally and internationally. When you’re getting your family organized and ready, don’t forget about Gravol™. If anyone is sensitive to motion sickness, whether you’re travelling by land, air or water, Gravol™ has you covered. Gravol™ Quick Dissolve Chewables for Adults and for Kids are ideal since they can be taken without water. If you prefer more natural products, Gravol™ Ginger tablets, lozenges or liquid gels made with certified organic ginger are also a great choice. Besides helping with motion sickness, Gravol™ Ginger products also help treat indigestion and upset stomach. They are easily packed and are non-drowsy too – so keeping up with your children won’t be a problem.
Gravol™ is only found in Canada, so make sure you stock up before leaving the country!
This is a compensated post yet as always, opinions are my own.
So many destinations, so little Summer 😉 My pick from the ten would most likely be Cavendish Beach, PEI. It sounds beautiful! Great list 🙂
This is totally making me want to travel this summer! I haven’t been to any of these places but the all look so amazing!
I would like to visit all of these! I struggle with motion sickness so Gravol would be great for me!
We do not travel too much and usually go to Virginia each summer but these are cool places to see! If I wasn’t petrified of planes I could see more of this beautiful world.
This is a great list, places I had not thought of previously either! Thanks for sharing this list, I am not sure we will get to those places as a family but I know friends who want to travel more, will share with them!
This is such a great list! Now I want to travel to Canada!
I’m sad to say out of all of those I’ve only been to Toronto. I’ve renewed my passport and I’m ready to do some traveling though!
This is so funny! We have almost the exact same bucket list of places to visit. Greece and Hong Kong are at the top of my international list.
We have been so blessed to be able to travel so much this summer as a family. This is a great list of travel destinations.
These are great places to visit! I would love to travel to Portugal!
I have a similar preference to visit places in my own country instead of traveling abroad! That seems like a fun list!
I am fortunate to have visited all the Canadians places listed with many more on my list to do. Thanks to gravol for making my trips enjoyable. I have been getting motion sickness all my life and don’t leave home without a supply.
I haven’t been to any of the places you mentioned but hope to get the Grand Canyon knocked off my list real soon.
We are in BC and just got back from a trip to Jasper and Mount Robson, we stayed one night in Jasper then headed to camp in Mount Robson, taking day trips back to Jasper. Amazing trip and breathtaking views!
I would expand Cavendish to the whole of Atlantic Canada which is breathtaking and sub Ottawa for Toronto and then i think you have the perfect list for Canada ( my international is quite different though).
Luckily I do not need gravol but we carry it always
So many awesome places to visit. This mama really needs to get a passport!
I have always wanted to go to the Grand Canyon. I have it on my bucket list and hope to cross it off in the next year.
I need to add a few of these to my travel bucket list. thanks for compiling the list.
I’ve been hearing more and more about Prince Edward Island. I was thinking of making Toronto my first big Canadian vacation, partly because it’s only a few hours from me in Michigan, but PEI is moving up fast.
The grand canyon is so nice, but I don’t know about going in the summer. It’s HOT there in the summer. I was there in October one year and it was in the 90’s that day.
This stuff sounds great. I live in the U.S., so I guess I’ll be trolling online shopping sites. Thanks for sharing!
I’d love one year to drive all over Canada – such a great place to explore
