Not sure where to go this summer? We’ve narrowed down the list for you.

As summer draws nearer, vacation is on the minds of many. Whether you’re looking for an affordable, family-friendly summer trip, hoping to knock some European landmarks off your bucket list, or just looking to take a much-needed break, it can be tough to decide just where in the world you should go. If you’re having a hard time narrowing down your vacation wish list, we suggest you look at the vacation spots that really are best seen during the summer months.

Destinations You Should Only Visit in the Summer Gallery

Summer doesn’t have to mean a top all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean or a journey to a far-flung Pacific island. Those sorts of destinations are always warm, and perhaps you’d do better to consider a destination that finally sees some sun and nice weather in the summer, such as a Scandinavian country or a destination in the more northern, chillier parts of North America. There are also some Southern Hemisphere destinations where you can beat the summer heat, but it’s still warm enough that you don’t need a jacket. Believe it or not, there are also destinations where summer isn’t peak travel season, meaning you can save on hotels or airfare and beat the crowds of tourists. If you’re looking to take a mid-year vacation and can’t decide where to go, check out these destinations that you should only visit in the summer.


100+ Fun Things to Do at Home Right Now, From Virtual Tours to Animals Cams and More

Here are tons of fun things to do at home for the entire family during your coronavirus quarantine.

It’s safe to say things are understandably weird right now. As the world reacts to the COVID-19 pandemic, people across the planet are staying home, quarantining, and practicing social distancing as an effort to slow — and hopefully stop — the spread of coronavirus. Though staying home is totally necessary right now, it means many of us have found ourselves with a lot of time on our hands. If you&aposre struggling to figure out how to keep yourself occupied beyond your usual at-home hobbies of Netflix and chill, you&aposre not alone.

For us, we’ve taken this time to really lean into the leisure side of Travel + Leisure, and help our readers around the world realize that we’re all actually a lot closer than it feels right now. If you’re like us, the idea of not being able to get outside to explore is difficult, but we’ve found that virtual travel is not only fun and exciting, it’s helping us see and understand places we’ve only dreamed about going. From the comfort of your couch you can explore the depths of Carlsbad Caverns and other national parks before “jetting off” to a virtual tour of the Louvre in Paris. Afterwards join an online cooking demonstration from a world-famous chef before sitting down to a breathtaking performance from New York City’s Metropolitan Opera. The world’s the limit — really.

So whether you’re at home trying to find educational stimulation for your kids, in a tiny apartment with your best friend from college dreaming about restaurants, or alone with your dog or plant calling everyone you know on FaceTime, we’ve gathered up a massive list of fun things to do at home during this time. From livestreams of animals to games to play virtually, these activities will keep you entertained, informed, and hopefully put a smile on your face. And we all could use a smile right now.

Take a virtual trip at home

With travel basically at a standstill, it’s time to embrace a new way to see the world — virtual travel and virtual tours. Thanks to the World Wide Web we can go pretty much as far as desired — all without a passport. Below we’ve rounded up the very best ways to experience the world outside our homes from the comfort of our couches, all broken down by different activity types to make it easier to get going.
