The best U.S. destinations to visit this July
Get far, far from home this summer at some of the best U.S. vacation spots. Bonus: No passport required!
Man standing triumphantly atop a peak in New Hampshire's White Mountain National Forest.

Hurray! Summer is officially here, and July is just around the corner. For many Americans, it's a month full of backyard barbecues, crisp summer beers, and epic road trips. But, if you’re looking to enjoy the season and the perfect weather by getting far, far from home, here are five destinations where July is the perfect time to visit. Bonus: No passport required!
The Colorado Rockies

If you love snow, you already know all the reasons to visit Colorado the other 11 months out of the year. But The Centennial State has a distinctly different vibe during the summer in general and July in particular. Naturally, it’s a great time to get outdoors and experience the Colorado Rockies when they’re not covered in white. Colorado’s national and state parks come alive in a unique way that’s rarely seen in winter. During the summer, for example, Crested Butte turns into an ocean of wildflowers. The annual Crested Butte Wildflower Festival is a sight to behold and an even better one to photograph. For nature lovers, it’s a worthy destination in its own right.
