Summer is in full swing and we’re more than ready to bust out of the office and go on a major summer vacation. We’re talking about a trip to one of the world’s most beautiful spots for some R&R and scenery that has to be seen to be believed, and of course, somewhere that allows us to get great use out of our bikinis! Below, check out three unique destinations that will definitely get your wanderlust going.
Known for its pristine white buildings and crystal clear turquoise waters, the Greek island of Mykonos is the perfect spot for those of you who like the sand by day and the clubs by night. Besides the party scene, make sure you take advantage of all that beautiful water has to offer by jet-skiing, snorkeling or parasailing around, and definitely take time to explore some cultural spots. The ruins at Delos are a must-see, and the sunset at Castle Panigirakis might just be the 8th wonder of the world.
Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah
The Grand Canyon is one of the US’s most popular vacation spots, but we’re thinking Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah might be even better. Centuries of erosion from frost and water have shaped the sunset-hued rock into “hoodoos,” great cylindrical spires that defy description. Perfect for the outdoorsy type, the hiking, camping, stargazing and horseback riding opportunities are some of the best you’ll find in the US, and you definitely have go on a nighttime walk around the canyon rim when there’s a full moon out. America the beautiful, this definitely is.
There are tons of amazing vacation spots in Turkey, but Pamukkale has to be one of the most unique due to its hot springs. No, that isn’t snow–that fluffy white stuff is actually comprised of calcium deposits, which cups milky-blue waters that look positively unearthly. When you’re done soaking in the world’s coolest day spa in your favorite swimsuit, make sure you hike through Pamukkale National Park, and then take a trip by hot air balloon to get a bird’s eye view of the mesmerizing landscape.
Let the summer vacation planning begin!
