Summer getaway

Chicago

Chicago has a horrible (and accurate) reputation for its unbearable seven-month-long winters, however, few cities are as majestic as summertime Chicago. Stroll the river walk amidst the impressive skyline and renowned architecture or take a water taxi to save your walking legs. Explore heralded museums such as the Museum of Science and Industry, The Field Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Shedd Aquarium.

Don’t leave without experiencing classic Chicago deep dish pizza, or taking in a ballgame at the historic Wrigley Field. If you want to balance trekking around the city with some R&R, take in one of Chicago’s many beaches and stare off into Lake Michigan with a cold drink in hand.

Portland

Portland, and the Pacific Northwest in general, experience more than their fair share of blustery gray days and rain but June to September (particularly July and August) brings the warmest temperatures and lowest amounts of precipitation. Portland is revered (and sometimes mocked) for its uniqueness, which means there’s no shortage of culturally stimulating activities to partake in.

Portland has dozens of karaoke bars and a serious focus on live music in general. But it wouldn’t be the Pacific Northwest without some coffee and a good read. Powell’s City of Books in Portland is the largest independent new and used bookstore in the world. If you’re not feeling as cerebral, take a hike in the Columbia River Gorge or check out one of the 58 active breweries within the city limits.

Asheville

If you’re looking for a quaint mountain adventure, few places in North America can offer the combination of culture, outdoors and quaint feel like Asheville, North Carolina.

The small-town layout lends well to the diverse ways one can spend a day. Get up early to explore the Blue Ridge Parkway and be back in time to eat lunch at one of the many excellent microbreweries. Walk off the food and brews by grazing the 8,000-acre backyard of America’s largest home, the Biltmore, and as many of its 250 rooms you can make it through. Those looking for a mild summer climate destination are well served heading to Asheville, with average summer temperatures barely exceeding 70 degrees.

Biloxi

For those looking for a more laid-back vacation complete with white sand, great fishing and higher temperatures, look no further than one of the country’s first settled communities (1699) in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Though Biloxi suffered extensive damage from Hurricane Katrina, its colonial, southern charm lives on with landmark sites like Jefferson Davis’ Beauvoir, the post-war home of the former President of the Confederate States of America. Many resorts and casinos have also been fully restored and when paired with the assortment of great golf course options in the area, Biloxi holds all the elements for a relaxed trip of play and leisure.
