Best USA Summer Vacation Destination Cities According to Travel Bloggers

Updated: Jul 1, 2021

Hello again, America!

It’s summertime again in the USA, and I am so thankful to be home! Because we’ve moved to the other hemisphere, we are now getting back-to-back summers! We go from summer in New Zealand to summer in the USA for June and July, and now we’ll head south again for spring and summer.


Although we’ve traveled and lived all over, I can genuinely say that exploring the USA never disappoints. People worldwide have the USA high on their travel bucket list but usually complain about the cost of a USA vacation.


So if you’re already in the USA, a stay-cation might be in order! I’ve asked bloggers from around the globe to write about their top summer destinations around the USA. See any familiar cities? Maybe it’s time to explore some new summer vacation spots! And especially with COVID, global travel is minimal and banned in many places.


I hope you find inspiration in this post to explore somewhere new. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway, a beach oasis, or a mountainy adventure, the USA has you covered.


Thanks to the many bloggers who submitted their favorite cities! I should mention that these are in no particular order; I posted them in the order that they were submitted. Enjoy!
