5 places to visit when exams are over

Rest and fun are the two most important things about summer for every student. If you, like many, still have no plans for this summer, it’s time to put a trip on your schedule. In this post, we have picked a few not too distant places that still make a great impression on every traveler. Do you prefer a city landscape or a hot summer beach? Find a destination to your liking below.

The Grand Canyon, Arizona

The national park attracts thousands of tourists from all over the world, and 2019 was the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Grand Canyon. This majestic creation of nature can captivate anyone, from an adventurous type to a mindful introvert. Here, you can take hiking tours to the depths of the canyon as well as go stargazing with astronomers and take night sky photography workshops. No matter what you choose, the Grand Canyon won’t leave you unimpressed this summer.

Seattle, Washington

If you still haven’t been to Seattle’s newly renovated Space Needle, you have to check it out. Have too many papers to write and not sure whether you’ll be able to have your vacation at all? Ask some online specialists, “write an essay for me,” and start planning your trip right away. Remember “Sleepless in Seattle?” Well, the world has changed since the 1990s, but this city on the West Coast remains magnificent. The 360-degree panorama at the top of the needle is only one thing you’ll like about Seattle. There’s also the Pike Place Market, over 100 years old, which has recently been expanded by adding more shops and crafts. A great place to drop by for a cup of coffee, some tasty local food, or genuine, bazaar-like shopping. When in Seattle, you should see the Museum of Pop Culture if you are a fan of the avant-garde. If the classics are more to your taste, visit the Seattle Art Museum.

Lake Tahoe, California

California is always fun for those who like sandy beaches and open-air festivals. Lake Tahoe is a rather special place that can be relaxing, invigorating, and romantic at the same time. The largest alpine lake in North America has a quiet shore in the North and a busy one in the South around the city of Reno. This is a perfect place for hiking and camping, as well as for swimming, windsurfing, and kayaking. Whether you like climbing, sunbathing, partying, or enjoying beautiful sunsets with your loved one, be certain you’ll have it on lake Tahoe.

Nova Scotia, Canada

If you are looking for a quiet place to reflect on your life, the Canadian Maritime province of Nova Scotia is the right place to go. The place is easy to access by plane from New York or Chicago. Nova Scotia may not be as fancy a tourist destination as British Columbia or Quebec, but it has many great things to offer. Cape Breton is a hub of Scottish culture, and the province’s capital annually holds the Halifax Jazz Festival around mid-July. There is also a fantastic tourist attraction—Dining on the Ocean Floor in the Bay of Fundy. When the tide is low, you can sit on the ocean floor and have a fine seafood dinner while enjoying the ocean view.

Cancun, Mexico

Cancun is a popular Mexican resort with an excellent tourist infrastructure. Hot sandy beaches and turquoise water are the main attractions here, however, you can visit the city of Cancun. If you’re not up to lying on the beach all the time, take a trip to the old Mayan sites in this region. In any case, Cancun gives you a good excuse not to run from one tourist attraction to another or do anything too active. Now you can have some time for yourself and enjoy doing almost nothing.
