Our Favorite Cool Weather Vacation Spots in the Summer
Summer heat combined with peak tourist crowd levels can transform idyllic vacation destinations into steamy, miserable locations. Instead of opting for traditional warm weather destinations, consider booking a trip to one of these cool weather vacation spots.
Michigan's Upper Peninsula
Surrounded by the Great Lakes, Michigan has miles of coastlines that travelers across the country often forget about. Those who are searching for a cooler summer vacation spot should consider booking a trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This beautiful peninsula is surrounded by water and is home to magnificent trails that lead to powerful waterfalls. Head to Isle Royale National Park to visit one of the quietest and least crowded National Parks in the country. Stay at Rock Harbor Lodge, the only hotel within the park's boundaries, to get the most out of your visit.
Grand Teton National Park
In the vast wilds of Wyoming lies Grand Teton National Park, where the mountains provide a breathtaking view at every turn. Here, visitors are able to explore both Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. They often spend their free time enjoying the cool temperatures as they fish, hike and explore the attractions in the parks. Signal Mountain Lodge is the only place you can stay in Grand Teton National Park that offers waterfront views. Enjoy the majestic beauty of the park from the comfort of your room.
The North Rim of the Grand Canyon
You may not immediately think of the Grand Canyon when you think of a cool weather vacation spot. While the more popular South Rim of the Grand Canyon is known for its stifling summer temperatures, it's North Rim is remarkably cooler and more comfortable. This portion of the canyon is more rugged and is well suited to true adventurers. Those who want to spend the majority of their time there should stay at the Grand Canyon Lodge, which is the only hotel on the North Rim.
