It may be winding down slowly, but the sun is shining, the trees are filled with lush leaves, and all the kids are home from school. Yes, it’s the season we all know and love, summer. Summer is the season that most people use to unwind and relax after a long school year, or a hard week of work, it’s when barbecues, parties, and picnics with family and friends are planned. But one thing that is very popular to do during the summer is travel. Creating exciting trips with family and friends is always a fun experience and even if you are unable to leave the country, doing a local trip can be just as exciting.
A popular destination for travelers during the summer time is the city of London in England. London is a beautiful city with many attractions such as the famous London Eye, a 135-meter tall observation wheel where you can see all of London from the comfort of a high-tech glass capsule, which rotates around in the span of 30 minutes giving the viewers an amazing view of everything London has to offer. London also has an amazing attraction for all of you fantasy lovers, for those who love the Harry Potter novels, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London provides visitors with a tour of how the magic behind how the Harry Potter movies are made, the tour takes you behind the scenes of an onto the sets of the beloved films. Visitors can even take a walk down Diagon Alley, discover the Great Hall and even step inside of Dumbledore’s office, careful he doesn’t catch you in there! These attractions are only two of the many attractions London has to offer there are many more sites to see all over the city, but for those of you who prefer more local trips and are willing to take a rather long road trip with family and friends Canada would be a good destination for you. Canada may not be the first destination people think of when planning a road trip, what with it being an 8-hour car ride.
But it’s beautiful scenery and multiple attractions will make the trip worth the ride. Niagara Falls is one of the largest tourist attractions Canada has to offer three collective falls make up Niagara Falls, which borders directly between the United States and Canada. The falls allow tourists to take boat ride tour of Niagara Falls and experience it in all of it’s breathtaking beauty, you’re even given complementary ponchos to avoid getting splashed. After taking in the beauty of the Niagara Falls, if you happen to be in Canada during August why not enjoy yourself at Caribana, a festival celebrating Caribbean culture and traditions starting August 3rd to August 7th even if you do not come from a Caribbean background or from the Caribbean itself enjoying the food, music, parade and overall festivities can prove to be an amazing way to spend your vacation in Canada.
