These are the top 3 destinations you need to visit right now. Which one is on your list?
Looking for the perfect destination for your next vacation? Before you book the same beach trip your family has taken a dozen times, why not opt for something new and exciting this year?
From a road trip tropical destination to an incredible cruise through one of the country's most beautiful states, we've compiled a list of the top three destinations you need to visit asap:
Key West, Florida
When most travelers think about booking a tropical getaway, the Bahamas or Caribbean come to mind. But the continental U.S. is home to its very own tropical destination, and getting to it is half the fun.
If you've never cruised the Overseas Highway from the tip of Southern Florida to Key West, this trip deserves a spot on your list.
A whopping 42 bridges connect a series of islands formed from coral and limestone that are surrounded by bright blue water. After driving 113 miles, every mile of which is packed with postcard-worthy views, you'll arrive in Key West.
The city maintains a small-town feel despite being a popular tourist spot. Take a stroll down Duval Street, where live music pours from the patios of restaurants and bars. Or, take a day trip to Dry Tortugas, one of the country's most remote national parks.
It's easy to forget that you're still in the U.S. while visiting Alaska. From the towering glaciers and stunning mountain views to the tranquil towns, this unique place has something to see and experience at every turn. And perhaps the best way to experience it all is through a cruise.
Driving from one city to the next can take hours if not days, and conditions can be rough. But with an Alaskan cruise, you get to visit some of the state's top destinations without the stress or time requirement. By day, enjoy excursions like kayaking and wildlife spotting. By night, sit back and relax, enjoy world-class dining, or perhaps take in a show while the ship carries you to your next stop.
Utah's Mighty 5
National parks are having a moment in 2021. With so many people opting to get outdoors this summer, many are facing high crowds. But if you're among those looking to explore some of our country's natural treasures and are willing to stand in a line or two, you'll want to head to Utah.
Utah's Mighty 5 are five stunning national parks located just a few hour's drives from one another. Whether you have just a few days to explore or a week or more to spend, this destination has it all. Hike to Angel's Landing in Zion. Go horseback riding in Bryce Canyon. Take some incredible photos of Arches' famous namesake. If you have the time, Utah is also home to tons of state parks and recreation areas where you can go boating, off-roading, or even sandboarding.
