AND THE BIG CURVE AND NO ISSUES ON THE WAY AS MIAMI-DADE AND BROWARD COUNTY ARE ACCIDENT FREE.

IT IS ONLY SPRING, BUT SUMMER IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER AND THAT MEANS SUMMER VACATION.

MANY PEOPLE PLAN ALL YEAR LONG FOR THIS ONE TRIP ONLY TO BE DISAPPOINTED WITH SKYHIGH PRICES AND HUGE CROWDS.

THE DISCOVER TRAVEL BLOG PUT OUT A LIST OF DESTINATIONS TO AVOID THE SUMMER.

WE BREAK DOWN WHERE THE EXPERTS THINK YOU SHOULD GO INSTEAD.

SKIP YELLOWSTONE AND GO TO SUN VALLEY.

MORE THAN 4 MILLION PEOPLE VISITED YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK IN 2017 AND WITH FEMINIST TOPPING 100 DEGREES IN THE SUMMER, YOU MAKE, YOU MAY FEEL THE HEAT.

GO WEST A LITTLE FURTHER AND VISIT SUN VALLEY IDAHO INSTEAD.

DISCOVERS AS IT OFFERS EPIC BEAUTY AND WIDE-OPEN SPACES ALONG WITH 400 MILES OF HIKING AND RIDING TRAILS THAT WON'T BE QUITE AS CROWDED.

NEXT, SKIP GREASE AND GO TO TURKEY.

SANTORINI GREASE HAS BEEN ON MY BUCKET LIST FOR YEARS, BUT THE TURKISH RIVIERA MAY ACTUALLY BE MORE BANG FOR MY BUCK.

SINCE ARENA IS STUNNING BUT EXPENSIVE AND DIFFICULT TO GET TO, BUT DISCOVER REPORTS TURKEY IS JUST AS BEAUTIFUL AT AN ANCIENT HILLSIDE VILLAGE AND BIKING AND BOAT DOORS, SKIP HAWAII AND GO TO PUERTO RICO.

SIMILARLY, HAWAIIAN GETAWAY CAN BE PRETTY PRICEY AND THE TIME TO GET THERE GUARANTEES YOU NEED A TRAVEL DAY, BUT DISCOVER HAS A MUCH CLOSER SUMMER SWAP IN MIND, PUERTO RICO, SPECIFICALLY.

YOU CAN SURF THERE, AND IT OFFERS OCEANFRONT YOGA STUDIOS AND MEDITATION SPACES AND EVEN OUTDOOR THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE.

FINALLY, HEAR ME OUT, GO TO ANNA MARIA ISLAND IN FLORIDA INSTEAD.

I ADMIT IT, I'M NOT SURE FLORIDA COMPARES TO ITALY VACATION WISE, BUT IF YOU WANT TO SAVE A BUNDLE ON TRAVEL, DISCOVER SUGGEST SWAPPING THE A MULTI- COAST EXCURSION FOR A GETAWAY TO ANNA MARIA ISLAND HELD AS THE BEST-KEPT GULF COAST SECRET, ANNA MARIA ISLAND IS NOT A MAJOR TOURIST TRAP AND WILL ONLY COST YOU ABOUT A TANK OF GAS TO GET THERE.
