Nature lovers can revel in the beauty of Appalachia and the Shenandoah Valley, while nautical souls enjoy access to the Chesapeake Bay and Hampton Roads regions along the Atlantic coast. Steeped in history and boasting some of the best seafood in the country, Virginia is a spot you don’t want to miss this summer.

2. California

California is a summer dream for adventurers and relaxers alike—packing mountains, beaches, forests, deserts, and lakes within its expansive borders. Beach goers can find solace on the sands of SoCal cities like San Diego and Los Angeles, where sunshine is as endless as the Pacific. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore one (or all) of state’s many renowned national parks, including Yosemite, Sequoia, and Joshua Tree, to name a few. Travel along the Pacific Coast Highway to take in the coast, ranging from palm trees to mammoth, rugged cliffs. If you’re thirsty along the way, you can always make a pitstop in wine country and take a vineyard tour. It’s time to break out your summer bucket list in the Golden State.
