Where to Travel in July

July is almost here, summer is in full swing, and everyone’s dying to get out and travel. But which destination will play host to your next adventure? With soaring temperatures and surging crowds, some places are worth waiting to explore during the cooler months. At the same time, there are plenty of summer festivals to plan a trip around. Check out our tips below for the best July travel destinations.


Dog Days of Dublin

Ireland is notorious for having drab weather, so there’s no better time to experience the Irish capital than during the summer. July is the warmest month of the year on average, with a daily high of 61 degrees. Naturally, the days in July offer the most sunshine, and the average rainfall is at its lowest. Stroll through St. Stephen’s Green, listen to the famous buskers of Grafton Street, and sip a beer in the sun at Trinity College’s Pavilion Bar.


Vancouver Festivals

Vancouver always ranks high on our list of favorite destinations, but summer brings some can’t-miss events. July 1 is Canada Day, when Canadians celebrate the founding of their country. You’ll find parades, festivals, fireworks, and plenty of other ways to celebrate Canadian culture. There’s also Vancouver Island Music Festival, being held this year on July 12-14.


Berlin Beer Gardens

Berlin is famous for its beer gardens, and there’s no better time to enjoy them than under the summer sun. Visit a wide variety of venue styles, ranging from traditional to trendy, each with its own charm. Wherever you go, you’ll enjoy the famous pretzels, delicious sausages, and some of the best beer in the world.


Whale Sharks on the Riviera Maya

Mexico’s beautiful Isla Mujeres, located eight miles off the coast of Cancún, hosts an annual Whale Shark festival, and the warm waters of the Riviera Maya are the perfect place to see these majestic creatures in action. Swim with whale sharks, watch local dance performances, sample local cuisine, and browse goods from local artisans.
