I'm always on the look out for new people. places, and things, and our friends at Travel + Leisure always have just the right amount of adventure to get excited about! If you are still trying to book that summer vacation with the family, or maybe just a weekend trip outside of your comfort zone - check out these Perfect Summer Getaway destinations in the latest issue. Some of these might take some planning, but Travel + Leisure definitely thinks these are the hot spots for Summer 2016. Each smaller destination is close to a major hub, for reference. All of these have their charms, of course, and I can't wait to visit some of these truly uniquely American locations this summer!
