The warmer months are finally here and summer 2017 is around the corner.

If you’re anything like me, this means vacay-mode is officially turned on and it’s time to plan the ultimate getaway. There’s something super intoxicating about the idea of the perfect summer vacation, wouldn’t you agree?

From the east coast to the west, I will be listing some of the top destinations you have to visit this summer. We’re talking bucket-list worthy!

If you’re looking for a destination to explore, adventure and enjoy great cuisine, look no further. Tulum is located on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, and has everything from swim up bars to the most tropical beaches and hidden sea caves. There is a special energy floating around this small beach town that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. Brb, buying my plane ticket now…

3. Oia, Santorini  

Oia, Santorini is definitely one of those destinations you have to see to believe because pictures do not do this place justice. This mediterranean jewel is best known for breathtaking sunrises, sunsets, and small white houses that tier the hillside. It has inspired a variety of artists, poets and each and every person who visits Santorini.

So, who’s ready to chase sunsets in Santorini?!

4. Bali, Indonesia

Bali is a living postcard. To many, this indonesian paradise feels more like a fantasy. It’s a haven for surfers and hippies alike. Whether your idea of paradise is relaxing in a hammock inside a dreamy jungle bungalow, or sipping Bintang beachside—you can enjoy it all in Bali at an affordable cost!

5.Kauai, Hawaii

Soak up the sweet sun of Kauai, Hawaii. Kauai is often referred to as the ‘Garden Isle’ due to it’s stunning greenery and beautiful scenery. Kauai enchants the senses like no other destination and is a place filled with pure, raw beauty and culture. This island represents the true spirit of “aloha” and sets your worries free with the salty breeze in the air.


Travel is great for the mind, body, and soul. Make travel the best medicine for yourself this summer and book your vacation at one of these magical locations. They are pretty darn close to what I would consider paradise.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to cross these destinations off your bucket list!
