    Video: Dreamy travel destinations for your summer vacay

    People don’t think about the Caribbean as a summer destination, but Barbados is a year-round destination with so many things to do.If you’re looking for a place to stay, check out the Crane Resort which has direct access to the beach on the Atlantic side and some of the best restaurants on the island. There’s also Naniki which isn’t on the beach, but up in the mountains. This is the spot you should head to if you’re looking for a wellness or nature retreat.

    As for what to do, Tiami catamaran cruises offer a half day tour along the tranquil Caribbean Sea where you’ll get to snorkel by a shipwreck and among sea turtles. There’s also Harrison’s Cave where you can explore the site via a tram! For a little bit of history, check out St. Nicholas Abbey – one of the oldest rum distilleries on the island.

    Be sure to try a flying fish sandwich is basically the national dish and is super cheap. Then there’s Oistin’s Fish Fry where you can get fresh seafood and sides while enjoying local entertainment. Fun fact, McDonald’s doesn’t have any locations on the island. Instead, the local fast food joint is Chefette which is definitely worth trying.

    Everyone has heard of the Blue Lagoon, but what is it exactly? It’s basically a thermal spa where you enjoy the pools but you can also pay for additional treatments such as face masks and massages. Keep in mind that there are spas all over the country so you can easily find a spot with fewer crowds compared to the blue lagoon.

    Now that you’re all relaxed you explore the rest of the country. The nice thing is most of the attractions are nature related, I’m talking about waterfalls, glaciers and rock formations that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. It’s easy enough to rent a car and drive around the country on your own, but G Adventures offers a 7-day Wellness Iceland tour where all of the logistics are taken care of including meals, transportation, and even a guided meditation session.

    Nicknamed the Emerald City, Seattle has so many outdoor activities to do from scenic hikes to kayaking. It’s also the cultural center of the Pacific Northwest and is easily accessible to Canadian travellers.

    When people think of Seattle, they probably picture the Space Needle. It recently went through a renovation and now features a floor-to-ceiling glass viewing experience. Other attractions you can’t miss include the Museum of Pop Culture and Pike Place Market which is the longest continuously running public market in the U.S.

    As you can imagine, the city hosts year-round events including the Destination Moon exhibit at the Museum of Flight. 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing so you’ll get a chance to see artifacts from the Apollo 11 mission.
