Here are some top destinations to visit in summer 2018:

New Orleans

It’s never a bad time for anyone to visit New Orleans, but in 2018. NOLA will celebrate its 300th anniversary. That means even more special events, fireworks, and parties. With an excellent nightlife, delicious food, and plenty to do, you’ll need to spend at least a week here to take it all in, but the city can also be seen in a whirlwind weekend.



Avoid Rome in July, when it’ll be crowded and hot. If possible, go in late August or early September. But even if you have to go in the height of summer, Rome is still one of the most incredible cities in the world, and you can take a nap in the heat of the day and enjoy the cooler evenings.

You can also combine Rome with a larger Italian trip, and head north to Venice and Florence.


Chicago truly shines in the spring and summer, and was recently named Restaurant City of the Year- making it perfect for foodies. While the deep-dish pizza is something of an institution here, it’s also home to Au Cheval- one of the best burgers in the United States.

While the eating is top-notch, Chicago is also packed with music festivals, museums, comedy clubs, beaches, and more. If you’re looking for a city that truly has it all- including A+ nightlife, fun days at the beach, and plenty of excellent attractions, head to Chicago this summer.


For some southern living, you can’t get much better than Savannah, Georgia. The historic district here is one of the best preserved in the United States, and tourists are made to feel welcome by the friendly locals. Spend some time admiring the lush parks and historic homes, walk on cobblestone streets, or head down the river on a riverboat.


Lisbon has some of the best weather in Western Europe, and it’s still a very cost-effective place to travel. Lisbon is still relatively underappreciated, although half of the population of the UK seem to be packed into the flats and hotels in the Algarve.
