City Trips in July

A city trip in July - who wants that? It's way too hot, way too exhausting, and you actually just want to lie around all day instead of walking around and exploring the area. We are telling you that you should feel the opposite! We think that a city trip in July is a good idea and that it's just about choosing the right location for it and that's exactly what we did for you. Check out our top recommendations for a city trip in July.

Washington D.C.

Visit the nation's capital around the 4th of July—a truly remarkable experience where the city comes to life with celebrations in the form of fireworks and parades. July, however, boasts some humid weather in D.C. Though, there are so many museums to pop in and out of that offer a great way to escape the summer heat and cool down.

Portland, Maine

Venture to Maine's coastline and explore the harbor city of Portland. Then venture over to the nearby sandy beach of Old Orchard and feast on some delicious Maine lobster rolls. Or go glamping and hiking in Acadia National Park. Whether you decide to explore Maine's forests or head over to the ocean, temperatures are great in Maine in the summertime!

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam is stunning with its canals, colorful houses, and lots of flowers (especially tulips!), Amsterdam is a real hit for a city break. Whether you're touring dozens of museums, venturing into a coffee shop, or partying the night away, there's something for every mood and with an average temperature of 78°F in July, it's neither too cold nor too hot for a trip to Amsterdam.

Budapest, Hungary

Budapest is a real paradise for explorers. There's something new around every corner. Budapest is the place for architecture lovers with a mixture of baroque, neoclassical and art nouveau buildings. Add to that the fantastic thermal baths and hip ruin pubs and you have the perfect city trip to Budapest planned. And that's not all, there is so much more to discover in the Hungarian capital that you shouldn't miss.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Located in southern Croatia, Dubrovnik is one of the country's most beautiful and most popular destinations, and this is especially the case in July. This is one of the sunniest months of the year, giving you the ideal weather to explore this fascinating city. There's a lot to see within Dubrovnik itself, which is famous for its formidable stone city walls and towers, but there are also beaches and small islands nearby, perfect for escaping to on a particularly hot day.

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

Canada has unthawed and Prince Edward Island is a great area to escape to on the east coast. The island offers beautiful red sand beaches and Charlottetown is a sweet bustling city. Visit the nearby Anne of Greene Gables house where the inspiration for author Lucy Maud Montgomery came to life. Try out Cows ice cream to cool off from a hot summer day.

The Best Beach Vacation Destinations in July

With the weather heating up in many destinations, July is part of North America's peak summer season (and the start of summer vacation for school-aged kids). Unsurprisingly, this is when many travelers want to head straight to the beach.

Thankfully, there are plenty of options for beach vacations. So much so that it might feel difficult to know where to start. After all, this is the time of year when flight routes are in full swing and famous resort areas come to life, so it'll feel like you have unlimited choices.

That said, there are a few key features that make a beach destination stand out above the rest: it needs to be safe, be warm both on land and in the water, and there should be plenty of daylight hours too. All our recommended beach destinations have these features - and then some! Take a look at our top beach vacation destinations for July.
