20 Hottest Summer Destinations

By Staff Writer

It’s getting warmer, and you know what that means: it’s time to put on your bathing suit and go to your favorite summer hotspot. Whether it’s the beach, the lake, or the snow cone place just around the corner, we all have that usual place we go to soak up a little sun and get our tan on. It’s fun, but...it’s just getting a little dull? There’s nothing wrong with that! It is just time for a bit of change, and we love change. New sights, new sounds, new beaches, and new things to do.

There’s more to summer than the usual spots. The world is your oyster—or your beach, whichever you prefer. Some destinations are known for being go-to spots during the hotter months of the year, and there’s a reason for that. Some are popular for good food, and others provide a place to relax without being bothered.

If you want something a little different, we’ve made a list of the top summer destinations for this year.  While there are tried-and-true standards (think New York City, London, or Cancun), these 20 destinations are quickly rising in the ranks to become top dogs as the trendiest place to visit.
