The Best Mountain Towns in the World for the 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:103920]
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.
