The summer vacations are here and it is officially the time for holidays. Families travel from one state to the another for the perfect travel destinations especially to take a break from the scorching heat of the sun.

1) MoPop, Seattle, Washington

2) Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, New York
A beach can never be a bad choice in summer. Spend the day playing in the waves at the ocean shore or listening to accordion players and guitarists. Brooklyn, NY is the perfect getaway.
3) Millennium Park, Chicago, Illinois
Spend a day here to take in Chicago’s unique skyline, play in the fountains, explore the gardens, take selfies at the giant silver “Cloud Gate” sculpture that is shaped like a bean and see a concert at the Frank O. Gehry-designed Jay Pritzker Pavilion.
4) Pacific Coast Highway, California
Show them the beauty of the open road. Rent a camper van or an RV and drive up or down the Pacific Coast Highway together. Take your time, stop often, watch whales and sunsets, and sleep just feet away from the Pacific Ocean.
