One of the perks of owning your own business and working on your terms is that you have a more flexible schedule for travel, and hopefully, you will even have more money to be able to take vacations more often!
I have compiled a list of the best places to travel year-round.
Spring is the perfect time to visit many places around the globe that experience mild temperatures and “off-season” pricing.
Madrid, Spain is a great spring destination. You will avoid the high hotel costs that are seen in the in-season summer months. The mild temperatures make it the perfect time to enjoy the museums, architecture, and everything the city has to offer.
Sydney, Australia is always a popular destination. However, in the Spring, when the temperatures are in the 60s and 70s, you can visit places like the Sydney Harbor, Opera House, and trendy Darling Harbour without the crowds of the more popular seasons.
Jackson Hole, Wyoming is known for its skiing, but if you travel there in the Spring, you can experience many other outdoor delights. This time of year is perfect for fly fishing, hiking, and exploring wildlife. You will also avoid the high prices of the ski season.
With the long days of summer and the warmer temperatures, you may experience higher travel costs in some popular destinations, but the weather and seasonal activities make it worth it.
Boston, Massachusetts is in full baseball mode, and it is the perfect time to take in a game at Fenway Park. The temperature is generally in the 70s and 80s, and there are many popular local activities like the Boston Harborfest.
If you like to ski, Winter is the obvious choice for vacationing, but there are many other places you can go that will allow for warmer weather and non-ski related activities.
The Big Island, Hawaii is the place to be for surfing. The winter months bring prime waves to Honolii Beach, and the warm weather is the perfect time to explore the island.
St. Lucia, Caribbean is where you can head to forget the snow and bask in temperatures the high 80s on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world like Reduit Beach. Costs may be higher because it is prime tourist season for people escaping the winter cold.
Fall is the perfect time to travel and experience mild temperatures and lower prices.
Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona is technically in an “off” season in the Fall, but that means fewer crowds. The cooler temperatures make it the perfect season to hike and take in the beautiful scenery.
Montreal, Québec, Canada is experiencing mild temperatures, and it is the prime time to visit to experience the local culture. In the Fall there are many popular festivals and beautiful flowers blooming at the botanical gardens.
So, no matter the time of year, there is always somewhere to go and take a vacation. It is so important, especially when you are running your own business, to take the time to recharge and experience things that you love.
