Best Summer Vacation Spot in Every State

It's finally summer—school's out, workloads are lighter, and the warmer weather calls for an escape to a place where you can enjoy the great outdoors. Here, we round up the best places for a summer getaway across the USA. From cities buzzing with festivals and entertainment to relaxing islands fringed with pristine beaches, these destinations will make you appreciate all the natural beauty and spectacular sights our country has to offer. They will probably also make you wish summer lasts forever.

Located just 90 minutes from Denver and surrounded by Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park, Colorado, is one of the country's most ideal destinations for an all-American summer vacation. The budget-friendly mountain destination is not only a natural playground for a wide array of outdoor activities, is also home to the one of the county’s largest wild elk concentrations, western summer events and a growing beer and distillery scene. And there's more to do after dark. Estes Park boasts the Performance Park Amphitheater, a lesser known (and free) alternative to Colorado’s iconic Rock Rocks. Throughout the summer, visitors can catch live music at this outdoor venue.

Rapid City, South Dakota is located within an hours drive of five national parks and monuments, making it a great place to introduce kids to history and the outdoors. Explore Mount Rushmore National Memorial, national caves or explore the mysteries of the Badlands National Park and Minuteman Missile National Historic Site. And this summer, there are several events that will make a visit to Rapid City even more special. The city's Journey Museum opens its Mount Rushmore exhibit in celebration of the memorial’s 75th anniversary. Highlighting the town’s impact on the monumental carving, families can learn about the 400 workers who shaped what Mount Rushmore is today. After visiting the exhibit, you can also explore the City of Presidents, adorning the street corners of Downtown Rapid City, the only location in the world where all United States presidents can be seen in life-sized bronze statues.
