Hidden U.S. Gems for a Summer Vacation

Pacific
Leavenworth, Washington


Looking for a little Europe without the long flight?  Try this Bavarian-styled village nestled amongst the mountains of central WA.  Offering benefits for both city and country lovers, this quaint little town is a perfect place to stay a while.  It’s location makes it easy to do day excursions, too.


Rocky
Missoula, Montana


For those who love the wilderness, Montana is a must-see, and Missoula is a great place to start!  Outdoor activities abound, but this college town also offers a wide range of cultural opportunities...and a carousel.  And a splash park. And a ghost town. And so much more!


Southwest
Taos, New Mexico


Northern New Mexico is quickly becoming a vacation hot spot, and Taos is a prime example of why.  Yet another example of a town where you can do it all, Taos boasts everything from skiing to hot springs.  Spend this vacation steeped in the cultural and natural richness of the Southwest.


Midwest
Apostle Islands, Wisconsin


Looking for a fresh take on the traditional beach vacay?  Try the lighthouses and cliffs of Lake Superior! With so many different sights to see and adventures to have, you could take a tour on every possible mode of transportation--bike, cruise, moped, kayak!  


Northeast
Cape May, New Jersey


Forget the Jersey Shore you see on TV and discover Victorian houses and whale watching instead!  With such a variety of activities, this place can be a year-round destination spot. Hit Sunset Beach for some particularly neat sights: the sinking SS Atlantus and beaches of quartz pebbles!


Southeast
Fayetteville, West Virginia


Did you forget WV is a state?  Unbeknownst to many, this spot of land nestled between five other states boasts some of the best outdoors in the country.  Visit the New River Gorge and either walk the bridge or white water raft under it. Hike some mountain trails then listen to some live music later.  Whatever you do, you’ll find out how seriously the locals consider this place “Almost Heaven”.


Noncontiguous  
Palmer, Alaska


Farming is probably the last thing you want to do during summer vacay, but what if you did it...in Alaska?  Located near Butte and Palmer, Pyrah’s Pioneer Peak Farm is the largest U-Pick farm in the state and one of many local attractions of the area.  Not only does it boast fresh produce and stunning mountain views, but they also host seasonal festivals and their own unique triathlon. Enjoying the fruits of your labor is definitely worth it here.
