Summer is officially here and most of us are definitely excited about all this season brings. Now with the your vacation hours at work accumulating and kids getting ready to start their break, so like us are you wondering where to vacation this June? Well we’ve got you all covered and compiled a list of suggested destinations for the month of June:
Aloha anyone? Hawaii’s beautiful island of Kaua’i is gorgeous all-year round, but June is especially perfect. Waves are at its calmest for surfing, and the temperature averages high 70s to low 80s. By now the rain season has ended and the peak honeymoon / tourism season hasn’t started yet so you’ll get very lucky with hotel rates! It’s also likely that you’ll be able to find a package deal with flights during this time since it’s off season.
Bordeaux in June is warm and sunny, with abundant wine tastings available at every Château. Visit during the beginning of June to be the first of the busy tourist season. The temperature will be very comfortable in the mid to high 70s, which is perfect for walking around and soaking in all the local aromas since touring as this area gets very hot later in the Summer. Just make sure to bring some extra cash for all the amazing wine your friends will beg you to bring back!
Deemed as an unlikely popular destination but the beautiful weather, low chance of rain, and longer days are what you’ll get if you visit Zagreb in June. Zagreb hits its tourism peak in July, so June is the sweet spot for visiting Croatia’s capital, and exploring some beautiful architecture. If you visit during the last week of June make sure you grab tickets to INmusic Festival!
Machu Picchu, Peru
Still have some of the majestic "Wonders of the World" unchecked on that long bucketlist? Explore the incredible Machu Picchu in June to get perfect sunlight and mild temperatures. By now Machu Picchu has entered into its dry season with pleasant temperatures in the 60s that will keep you outside exploring these historic remains all day.
Now many of these destinations are quite far crossing multiple time zones. To help you neutralize jet lag so you can experience the most out of your big trip. Don’t forget to download the Uplift app on the Apple App Store or Google Play. Happy traveling!
