It’s summer vacation time! What’s your vacation style–road trip or cruise? City or nature? Carefully scheduled or go with the flow? Here are five dream destinations we’ve been eyeing:
Bora Bora. A scuba diver’s dream, this small South Pacific island is surrounded by a turquoise lagoon protected by a coral reef, and anchored by a dormant volcano (Mt. Otemanu) at its center. You can even stay in a bungalow that sits over the water on stilts!
Cape Cod, MA. Boasting a rich maritime history, Cape Cod is a storied summer retreat for vacationers hailing from the Northeast and beyond. Just 3o miles south is the quaint seaport town of Nantucket, whose late-18th and early-19th century architecture (along with its pristine beaches) makes it a magical place for strolling.
Ireland. Castles, cliffs, countryside, and neighborhood pub culture put the Emerald Isle at the top of our list of dream destinations. Steak and Guinness pie, anyone?
South Africa. Go on safari; eat, drink, shop, and museum-hop in Cape Town and Johannesburg; go hiking, biking, or kayaking; drive the Garden Route or take a luxury train ride on the Blue Train or Rovos Rail–there is so much to do in South Africa!
San Francisco, CA. San Francisco boasts gorgeous vistas, eclectic neighborhoods, incredible dining, and a thriving art scene. Ride a cable car, hole up in a cozy cafe, and take a stroll through Golden Gate Park. For a nature fix like no other, take a day trip to nearby Yosemite National Park.
Of course, wherever we travel, we always rely on our Smartphone Pockets to keep our phones, cards, cash, and keys on-hand and secure! Where are you headed this summer? If you could vacation anywhere in the world, where would it be?
