June is a popular month for vacations for many – school is out, it’s a slower time for many businesses, and the weather is great in many areas.
We are still trying to finalize our travel plans for the month of June. We are all over the place though. Do we want to rent an RV and tour the United States (I’d love to visit the National Park that I talk about below), do we spend around 4 or 5 days in the Caribbean, or should we fly somewhere outside of this part of the world (maybe Europe?)? There are just so many options out there, and I am so grateful for that!
The end of June is typically the best time to visit the state of Alaska. June 21st marks the longest day each year in Alaska, with a whopping 19 HOURS of daylight in Anchorage, and a crazy 22 HOURS of daylight in Fairbanks. This means that you can be outside at midnight and it will still be bright outside. If that doesn’t sound awesome then I don’t know what does!
Temperatures also range from around 60 degrees Fahrenheit to around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, which sounds like perfect temperatures to me.
June in Alaska means that everything comes alive. It’s not freezing outside and everyone and everything is no longer hibernating. The environment is absolutely beautiful, and it is a trip of a lifetime.
You could go on a cruise, or stay at a nice resort. You may encounter some rain when in the Caribbean in June, but usually it stops and brightens up within minutes.
The Caribbean is also nice in June because it’s typically the low season for them, which means that you should be able to find an amazing deal on a resort.
Visit a national park in the United States.
For the most part, June means that the weather is quite nice in most of the United States. It also means that everything is turning green and plants are blooming like crazy. This is a great time to visit a national park such as Yellowstone or Yosemite and enjoy the great outdoors.
This June, the country of Brazil hosts the 2014 Football World Cup. Need I say more?
