Beat the Heat in These Fantastic Spots



As much as I love summer, I can't stand the heat. As a redhead, I burn too severely to enjoy the heat. But I still like to travel during the summer because my husband, a professor, and boys are out of school. So I am always looking for places we can go that will keep me from catching fire. Here are my favorite places to beat the heat.

Canada

When you think of Canada, you likely don't think of balmy summer nights (and there's a reason for that!), but some regions get warm. Despite warm temperatures (think the mid-70s, sometimes the 80s), the beautiful sights will take your mind off the weather. I adore Vancouver; the city is gorgeous, and there is much to do in and around it. Banff is a perfect place to escape due to its perfect temps, the brilliant sun, and the renowned sparkling glacial-fed blue lakes. Montreal sits on an island in the Sint Lawrence River; you can experience the city's culture, shopping, and fine dining.


Aruba

Hear me out; I promise Aruba is a great spot to escape the heat. Aruba is a desert island (yes, there are lots of cacti), so the temperature might be high; it is dry heat so the humidity won't be an issue. Aruba has stolen honeymooners' hearts with miles of white sand beaches, perfect turquoise seas, and more sunfilled days than any Caribbean island.

Croatia

Croatia possesses an excellent spot along the Adriatic Sea across from Italy, at the crossing of Central and Southeast Europe. This friendly Mediterranean nation offers romance everywhere, with unspoiled beaches, fascinating architecture throughout ancient cities, and enchanting wilderness over its vast country. Croatia personifies a rich history influenced by its many neighbors while remaining unique and instantly recognizable. Croatia shares borders with five countries, offering opportunities to extend your trip.


TTC Romantic Experience Favorite: Spend the day exploring Korcula Island's hidden bays, sun-drenched beaches, and Dalmatian fjords offer breathtaking views along the coast, along with the boat ride. After returning to the mainland, you will visit the ancient walled town of Ston, containing defensive walls dating back to the 16th century defensive walls, which were at one point the most significant second to the Great Wall of China.


Iceland

Iceland is fantastic year-round. It is warm during the summer but is still an excellent spot to escape the heat. Want to cool off? Go for a stroll on a glacier. Other incredible sites, bumbling geysers, and quaking volcanoes will thrill you. You will be awestruck by the gorgeous landscapes. Iceland is a land of legends. Elves, giants, and other mythical creatures roam the grounds. Thrill at the wonder and excitement Iceland offers!

Slovenia

Slovenia offers the best of at least five European countries rolled into a tiny adorable destination. With the Mediterranean coastline on the west and mountains in the north, you can explore the entire country in 8 to 9 days! There are castles on castles, unique wineries, stunning landscapes, gourmet delights, and so much more. Slovenia is a hidden beauty waiting for discovery!

TTC Romantic Experience Favorite - Boat Ride on Slovenian Riviera. Discover the secret spots on the Slovenian coast aboard a traditional Istrian wooden sailboat and enjoy a selection of tasty local cold cuts and a bottle of chilled champagne. Be carried away by the mystical medieval coastal towns and untouched bays before you anchor for a swim and delicious lunch!


Anguilla

Although Anguilla might not allow you to "beat the heat," in this case, it will enable you to embrace the heat! Anguilla is in the eastern Caribbean and is known for its luxury and palm trees on some of the most beautiful white sandy beaches. If you need to escape the weather, what better place is there to do in your private pool?


There you go; six spots will let you beat the heat this summer. Do you have a favorite place to get away from the summer doldrums?
