If you haven’t started planning your summer getaway, Rubinsohn Travel has selected our favorite destinations for your summer travel. Whether you are looking to soak up the sun on the beaches of Miami, Florida or hike through the beautiful mountains of Breckenridge, Colorado, we have it all listed here. So, check out this week’s blog on our four favorite last minute vacation destinations that will heat up your summer!
Miami continues to be one of Florida’s most popular destinations year after year. Typically, travelers visit Miami during the winter months because of its beautiful year-round sunshine. However, it is really a year-round hotspot. For the foodie, Miami is known for its diverse cuisine on every block. Within the last 10 years, Miami has exploded with cutting-edge eateries and family-style restaurants all around the city. Visit, Cibo, a local gem tucked away in South Beach or if you are interested in experiencing a lively dining experience, Swan, is a celebrity hotspot on the weekends.
So, stop thinking about Miami as a winter destination, book in June, July, or August and you are guaranteed to experience a more authentic Miami that is not overcrowded with tourists. Although it is hurricane season from May to November, you will most likely be met with sunshine, cold drinks, and unforgettable memories. Whether you are attending a weekly farmers market on the beaches of South Beach or enjoying drinks poolside, booking a last minute trip to Miami will be worth it.
New Orleans is known for its rich culture and unusual traditions that travelers tend to visit during the fall, winter, and spring seasons. However, visiting during the summer can be the secret to beating crowds filled with tourists. Going to summer festivals like Nola’s Downtown Music and Arts Festival or attending the Krewe of Nyx Summer Parade can immerse you into New Orlean’s culture and make you feel like a local. If you want to cool down and booze up, have brunch on the water by taking a scenic ride with Steamboat Natchez. What else is New Orleans known for? Oh right, having some of the world’s BEST beignets. Take a stroll through the city to visit New Orleans Coffee & Beignet Co., Cafe Du Monde, and Cafe Beignet for the best fresh and light pastries around. Whether you are eating, drinking, or dancing, visiting New Orleans is an experience like no other.
While Colorado is known for snowy mountains and great skiing, the Centennial State can also be great for a last minute trip in the summer too. Bringing the kids can be awesome because of the allure of the ultimate family summer vacation: hiking down a mountain path, kayaking, whitewater rafting, and enjoying nature under the open starry skies of Colorado. Or, take a kids-free trip to enjoy Colorado’s Irish Festival or attend the Breckenridge Summer Beer Festival for the perfect brew. Either way, a trip to Colorado would be worth it. Visiting Colorado for its cuisine may not be what you would typically think to travel there for, but Colorado is home to some of the best dishes around. Try Tag Restaurant, known for its diverse plates or try My Brother’s Bar, a Colorado staple for over 40 years.
Stone Harbor, New Jersey
What is more classic to a Pennsylvanian than a vacation to the Jersey Shore? Known as “the seashore at its best,” Stone Harbor is one of the shore’s most popular and luxurious destinations with the recent development of hotels, restaurants, and outdoor fun. Visit Stone Harbor this summer for some of the best 4th of July festivities the shore has to offer: beautiful beaches, fireworks by the sea, and delicious treats at Springer’s Homemade Ice Cream. Having an authentic Italian dinner while looking at the open water is an essential part of every shore trip. Visit Ristorante Luciano for a delicious homemade meal that mixes fresh seafood with Italian components. Want to do something exciting? Watch boats race at the Festival of Lights: Boat Parade at the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor this August.
