Looking to beat the summer crowds?
June is an excellent time of the year to getaway on a summer vacation in the US, especially on the coastal areas of the eastern seaboard. If you’re wondering about the best places to vacation in June, I have you sorted!
I have for you a nice selection of travel destinations and vacation ideas where you can spend an enjoyable early summer vacation:
If you’re looking for nice sunny beaches to go swimming, lovely scenery and relaxed ambiance, the east coast of USA is king in early summer.
There are many places to visit on the east coast to choose from and so many summer vacation spots in New England that you’ll be spoiled for choice. A few of my favorites which families with kids will also love include:
1. Cape May
The beautiful and charming town of Cape May in southern New Jersey is known for its many fine dining opportunities and Victorian gingerbread homes.
Cape May is also one most peaceful seaside resorts in New Jersey that doesn’t boast large theme parks or typical seaside attractions characteristic of Mid Atlantic destinations.
2. Hilton Head Island
Hilton Head Island in South Carolina is another of the best places to vacation in June. The town boasts miles of beautiful beaches and dozens of golf courses, tennis courts and lovely natural scenery.
3. New Haven
The cultural rich and historic city of New Haven in Connecticut is one of the best places to vacation in June in the New England region. The city boasts so many cultural attractions, fun events and festivals such as the New Haven Jazz Festival and Film Festival.
Rhode Island, the smallest states in the US, is home to a gem of a destination – Newport. Newport Rhode Island is home to spectacular coastal scenery and beautiful grand mansions such as The Breakers.
US National Parks
If you love the outdoors then, how about heading to a national park for an early summer vacation?
Spring and fall are certainly popular times to visit national parks. However, if you fancy spending a vacation in the great outdoors, June is a great time, and more so because of the stunning early summer display of wildflowers!
You’ll not only beat the huge park crowds and avoid the school summer holidays, but you’ll also find cheaper cabin rentals, and lodging rates both inside and outside the park.
There are so many national parks to choose from such as Yellowstone National Park
in Wyoming that is hard to mention all of them. Besides Yellowstone and its geysers, three other of the best national parks include:
1. Yosemite Valley National Park
Yosemite Valley National Park lies west of the beautiful coast of California, and it’s probably one of the top national parks on the Southwest coast of USA.
Yosemite Valley is truly a gem of a park, which is home to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, stunning granite cliffs, breathtaking waterfalls and giant sequoia trees. If you love rock climbing and photographing stunning scenery, you’ll love spending time in Yosemite Valley National Park.
2. Grand Canyon National Park
Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona is perhaps the top national park in the southwest region because of the stunning and breathtaking Grand Canyon, one of the top 10 natural wonders in USA.
The Grand Canyon National Park is located north of Arizona, near the border with Utah and Nevada. Besides the stunning views from both the North and South Rims, you can enjoy horseback riding tours, treks along the gorges and white-water rafting.
3. Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park sits on the North Carolina-Tennessee border and it’s one of best places to vacation in June in the south.
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park boasts the stunning scenery of the Appalachian Mountains, many beautiful waterfalls and plenty of recreational activities on offer such as hiking, fishing on the river streams, bird spotting and scenic drives along Blue Ridge Parkway.
