The Most Incredible Mountain Towns for Summer

Beat the heat and have an adventurous vacation this summer


Instead of looking for creative ways to beat the summer heat, head out to a cool mountain town where you won’t have to hide from the sun to enjoy water sports and wilderness adventures.[slideshow:86575]

Reach for the hills and immerse yourself in off the beaten path’s serenity, as opposed to the sand-and-surf setting where you’ll be bumping into people all the time.

Start your day with a delicious breakfast in your cabin, go on a refreshing hike through the woods, eat fresh seafood for lunch, take an art class or go paragliding in the afternoon, and enjoy a free concert in the evening.

Mountain towns have several advantages – the air is fresher, there is always a breeze, massive crowds are rare, easygoing festivals are common, and the outdoor activities are thrilling.

Do something unconventional this summer  and discover a new side of a place you probably can’t imagine without snow. You’ll find hot springs, theme parks, hot air balloon opportunities, rock climbing spots, and many more exciting attractions.
