8 Great Hidden Summer Getaway Locations
When it comes to summer vacations, there are plenty of well-known places that everyone flocks to when the warmer months come around. Well, now is the time to start searching for your perfect getaway as the summer will soon be upon us once again. This year, why not consider venturing down the path less travelled? With that idea in mind, we are going to be taking a look at eight hidden summer getaway locations that could take you off the beaten track and give you a slightly different vacation experience this year.
The Trummelbach Falls in Lauterbrunnen Valley, Switzerland
The Lauterbrunnen Valley is a beautiful and rustic village located in the Interlaken-Oberhasli district of Bern in Switzerland. It is known for its numerous captivating waterfalls, with an astounding 72 that can be found in the valley. However, there is one waterfall in particular that is well hidden. The Trummelbach Falls are a series of glacial waterfalls- ten to be exact- that can be accessed through an ancient tunnel funicular and a lift. The waterfalls are inside the mountain itself, so you find yourself being sprayed with the cool mist once inside. Lauterbrunnen Valley is a lesser-known vacation spot in itself, but to truly discover a hidden getaway within the valley, Trummelbach Falls is a must.
Italy is a common vacation destination thanks to the amazing sights, beautiful weather and various attractions. Places like Florence, Rome and Venice are tourist hotspots, but why not consider a lesser-known Italian city this vacation season? Senigallia is less than two hours away from Rome and has huge cultural significance, being the first Roman colony on the Adriatic coast to have been founded by the Gauls in 289 BC. Senigallia is a port town with plenty of beautiful beaches to admire. Some of the attractions include the 17th-century plaza and a Gothic castle, the Rocca Roveresca, which was restored in 1492. Due to the Italian heat, you might want to consider a summer dress while in Senigallia, such as the White Pineapple Floral Shoulder Strap Summer Dress.
The Congo, Africa
If you are looking for a jungle adventure that is more than a little off the beaten track, consider visiting the Congo in Africa. Exquisite forests and wildlife exploration trails are outside your door, particularly if you stay in the capital city of Brazzaville, which is known to be the cleanest and safest area in Africa. Whether it’s observing endangered species or kayaking, you are sure to find a unique adventure in the depths of the Congo and her beautiful jungles.
Everyone dreams of vacationing in the island paradise that is Hawaii, but for that very same reason, a lot of the main cities, like Honolulu, tend to be jam-packed with tourists throughout the year. If you are not up for dealing with large crowds, consider heading to the hidden gem that is Princeville. It is a town on the Northern coast of Kauai that is known for its beautiful scenery and cliffside views that overlook the sea.
The Faroe Islands, Denmark
A retreat that allows visitors to traverse the lesser-known wild landscapes of Denmark, The Faroe Islands are a North Atlantic archipelago consisting of 18 volcanic islands situated halfway between Iceland and Norway to the north of Scotland. There are steep cliffs, hiking trails, grass-roofed houses and even puffins. The Faroe Islands are also known for their music, with five live music festivals occurring throughout the year.
King Weston Estate, Bristol
UK vacations usually tend to focus on the capital city of London, but there are plenty of other hidden getaways in England you can enjoy. For example, Kings Weston Estate, located in Bristol, is an amazing historical landscape that is brimming with British history across more than 300 acres.
The same goes for the U.S., where places like New York and Orlando might be considered the heavy-hitting vacation destinations. However, the charmingly historic Savannah, Georgia, has plenty of beauty and historical architecture to admire.
Much like Italy, Greece is a popular vacation destination thanks to its cultural relevance and gorgeous weather. The Greek Islands are all popular, but one of the lesser-known ones is Symi, a harbor town rich in history, culture and mythology as well as glorious beaches. Interestingly enough, Symi is well known for its “Symi Shrimp”, which is considered unique seafood as they are eaten whole with the shell.
