Sandy beaches, award-winning vineyards, and mountain views make North Carolina the perfect summer escape. Along the sandy beaches of the Crystal Coast, you’ll discover pirate shipwrecks, watch wild horses race, and climb lighthouses near Cape Lookout. With more than 400 vineyards across the state, don’t forget to tour the wine trails in the Yadkin Valley. Savor the different flavors of wine while drinking in the mountain scenery.
The birthplace of the American Revolution is also an awesome getaway for weekend warriors. Massachusetts is one of the top 10 whale watching spots in the world, so you can experience a close encounter with one of the ocean’s most majestic creatures in Cape Cod or Boston. In the heart of Johnny Appleseed Country, Leominster State Forest provides an ideal haven for rock-climbing and trail-hiking enthusiasts. For all you history buffs, Boston is also full of historical tours and breweries. Sam Adams, anyone?
During the summer months, Wisconsin really knows how to rock with more than 25 outdoor music festivals. There’s nothing better than enjoying an awesome concert on a hot day with a cold drink in hand. Plus, with such an array of music fest choices, you’re sure to find one that floats your boat. Speaking of boats, Wisconsin is also known for its 15,000 lakes and ample water park attractions. It’s a hotspot for kayaking, tubing, boating, fishing, swimming, or, if you prefer kicking back to kicking it into high gear, lazily sunning yourself on the dock or shore. Wisconsin’s natural beauty also shines in the summer with state parks like Copper Falls State Park, and the awe-inspiring rock formations at Devil’s Lake State Park.
North Dakota promises its visitors their experience there will be legendary, and it doesn’t disappoint. For an example, look no further than the Sheyenne River Valley National Scenic Byway. Listed on National Geographic’s Guide to Scenic Highways and Byways, this 63-mile winding road runs alongside the Sheyenne River with breathtaking views. In addition to nature and scenery at its best, recreation, history, and culture are all found along this byway. In fact, the legends of the American West are at the heart of North Dakota culture. Stop by the United Tribes International Powwow in Bismarck to soak up a Native American cultural celebration, or cowboy up at the Fort Ransom Fourth of July Rodeo. Boots and cowboy hats aren’t mandatory, but you won’t look out of place if you wear them.
